Failover Clusters as DR

First, I want to clarify something: disaster recovery (DR) can mean many things. From my perspective, I couldn’t care less how a storage vendor provides remote copy services – when my critical IT business application goes down, I lose money. This loss, depending on the annual frequency of outages, can range from $10,000 to many hundreds of thousands of dollars per year! This application or service protection is what FalconStor is all about. Delivering this type of solution goes beyond the mere storage and remote replication solutions actively promoted by the major SAN vendors. However, application availability, or resilience, has been around for some time in the form of server clusters.
