Increase the availability of applications and services such as Microsoft Exchange Server, Hyper-V, Microsoft SQL Server and file servers with a Broadberry high availability failover cluster.

Each clustered server (referred to as a 'node') are connected by external SAS cables and the Windows Storage Server 2016 software. In event of one of these nodes failing another node takes over in providing the service with very little disruption to the uers, this is known as failover.

The clustered roles are proactively monitored to verify they are functioning correctly, if not they are restarted or moved to another node by the Window Server 2016 software.

Failover Cluster Validaton Tool

With the new Windows validation wizard you can perform tests to determine if your Broadberry failover cluster has any issues in its current setup for high availability failover, this will test all aspects of your setup from DNS, to physical network setup.
