How does the sun cluster work in this case. Is it mirroring the disk as well, or does the cluster share disk via a san or some such? Also, does it work across the WAN e.g. would this work in a DR environment as well, or is this just a solution for having hot failover in the primary site? Received on Wed May 28 2008 - 18:24:05 CDT
