Introduction to Ozeki Cluster
What is Cluster software?The cluster software makes it possible to set up servers in a clustered configuration. The multiple servers work together with the same operating systems and applications. The cluster software solution provides continuous service availability, protects users against downtime and prevents data loss.
What is Ozeki Cluster software?Ozeki Cluster is a software that can move a service to another computer in case of hardware failure. It can also synchronize files and directories when the two servers are healthy. This is a great tool you can use to build a reliable fault tolerant system from multiple servers.
To operate, Ozeki Cluster has to be installed on both the live and the backup server. Every 10 seconds the two servers ping each other to find out if the other server is on-line. If one of the computers find out the other one is not accessible, it alerts the system administrators using e-mail, sms or voice calls. If the primary server fails, the software starts the configured service(s) on the backup node.
Ozeki Cluster can perform the following tasks automatically:
1.) Detects hardware or software failures
2.) Starts the service on the backup node
3.) Moves the IP address to the backup node
4.) Synchs files between multiple servers

Hardware can fail. To provide a reliable service, you need a solution, that detects failure and acts automatically. OZEKI Cluster automatically moves any service to another computer in case of a hardware failure, and keeps the IP address associated with the service on-line. Ozeki Cluster can also keep your files synchronized. Learn how to setup such a solution.
Installing Ozeki Cluster is simple and straightforward, you simply download the installation package and run it, then click next on most screens. During the installation you will need to specify the target directory and you will need to provide a password you can use for confiuration.
This is an example configuration, that demonstrates how to setup a failover cluster. This example configuration works on two servers (one primary and one backup), and it moves the Ozeki NG SMS Gateway service to the backup node if the primary server hardware fails.
To provide a reliable backup service the files between the primary and the backup server need to be synchronized. Ozeki Cluster has a built in file system watcher feature, that check the directory periodically for changes and transfers new and modified files to the backup server. This feature is optimized to be able to work with large files. It can also handle very large directories (directories with several hundred thousand files)
This data sheet lists all the hardware and software requirements of Ozeki Cluster and it shows the most up to date information about the software. In general Ozeki Cluster does not have any special hardware or software needs, it will work straight out of the box with most Windows computers.
In this section, you will find screenshots and descriptions of the most important features of OZEKI Cluster. For example you will see how the screen will look when you setup the cluster IP and what the forms used to add a computers services to the cluster look like.
