Alexey Zabrodin: Clustering Server Applications Using Middleware CSIT 2000 : 117-121
Along with "heavy" industrial cluster solutions, light application-level clusters can be attractive in many cases. The paper describes an approach to application clustering which extends from a simple client-server model. It is implemented in a COM-based middleware product and improves fault-tolerance and availability of server applications. Clusters in the model are self-organizing, with one and only primary server kept, and without "bottleneck" nodes.
