Would your business find it difficult to operate for a few hours or an entire day without access to core IT services? HP Serviceguard clustering software is the foundation of every Serviceguard business continuity solution. Serviceguard packages a critical service, an application or a database with its associated resources and monitors the entire package for faults in hardware, software, operating systems, virtualization layers, network, and storage. During a fault, Serviceguard gracefully shuts down the application, restarts it on an available server in the cluster, connects it to the appropriate storage device, and resumes normal operations, all in mere seconds. Serviceguard clusters remove single points of failure and deliver high availability with redundant hardware.
- Increase resource utilization with improved workload balancing across a cluster.
- HP Serviceguard uses best-fit, load-sensitive package placement to select nodes with highest remaining or least used capacity.
