Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS) extends the Windows NT operating system to support high-availability services. The goal is to offer an execution environment where off-the-shelf server applications can continue to operate, even in the presence of node failures. Later versions of MSCS will provide scalability via a node and application management system which allows applications to scale to hundreds of nodes. In this paper we provide a detailed description of the MSCS architecture and the design… CONTINUE READING
