Cluster Management Software

Cluster Management Software

Cluster management software maximises the work that a cluster of computers can perform. A cluster manager balances workload to reduce bottlenecks, monitors the health of the elements of the cluster, and manages fail over when an element fails. XENON delivers and supports the following cluster management software options.
