Clustering? | SQL Server Performance Forums

SQL Server Performance Forum – Threads Archive


What’s active-active and active-passive cluster? Is there some basic information as to how to setup a cluster out here? If yes, could somebody please share it this? It’s my impression that, when you have active-active cluster, you have load-balancing aswell with this option? Is it true? Really appreciated some input on this. many thanks,

Regarding your question, big NO, Clustering is not for Load Balancing despite of what you have heard. Raulie
Thank you so much Satya for providing this info. Have a good weekend.
Clustering is only for High Availabilty… Check "Failover Clustering " topic in BOOKS ONLINE…
