Issue


Does the I/A Series G3 Enterprise Network Server (ENS-1) software support clustering or able to interface with the SQL cluster?

Product Line

TAC I/A Series

Environment

I/A Series G3 Enterprise Network Server (ENS-1)

Cause

Clusters are a set of computers operating together as one unit.  Load-balancing clusters are configurations in which cluster-nodes share computational workload to provide better overall performance.  The activities of the computing nodes are orchestrated by clustering middleware, a software layer that sits atop the nodes and allows the users to treat the cluster as by and large one cohesive computing unit.

Resolution

The I/A Series G3 Enterprise Network Server (ENS-1) software does not support clustering.  The software does not provide capability for load balancing nor can it interface to a SQL cluster scenario.
