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.

1. the application stop and start scripts,
2. the configuration file userconfig.xml which contains:
Here are some examples of mirror application modules:
Here are some examples of farm application modules:
Once the application module is configured and tested, deployment of the HA software cluster requires no specific IT skills:
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.
