Cluster configuration

Simplicity of cluster configuration

With the SafeKit software, cluster configuration for a critical application is simple. You must configure either a farm application module or a mirror application module according the high availability architecture suited for your critical application.

Cluster Configuration with the SafeKit Software

Cluster configuration involves writing an application module with the help of the SafeKit web console. An application module includes:

1. the application stop and start scripts,

2. the configuration file userconfig.xml which contains:

Examples of cluster configuration can be found within the SafeKit software cluster guide with:

Simplicity of software cluster deployment

Once the application module is configured and tested, deployment of the HA software cluster requires no specific IT skills:

    1. install application on 2 standard Windows or Unix servers,
    2. install the SafeKit software on both servers,
    3. install the application module on both servers,
    4. configure the new names (or IP addresses) of the servers and the new name (or virtual IP address) of the cluster ,
    5. start the cluster.


After cluster deployment, the administrator has a very simple management console (as well as a command line interface), to avoid human errors when managing the critical application.

Simplicity of cluster configuration with the SafeKit software must be compared with complexity of hardware cluster configuration.
