 Tolerating Fault in an Intolerant World

Linux Planet takes a look at clustering.

"High-availability computing is something else that clusters can be used for. If you have a need for a lot of transaction-handling that need 24/365 uptime, clusters are good because if one processor fails, then the load will automatically be handled by the other nodes until the faulty processor can be repaired. This sounds very good, and it is. But there are some challanges to making this all work smoothly."
