An ordinary, non-cluster-aware application must meet particular requirements to be a candidate for high availability (HA). The section Analyzing the Application for Suitability lists these requirements. This appendix provides additional details about particular items in that list.
An application is made highly available by configuring its resources into resource groups. The application's data is placed on a highly available cluster file system, making the data accessible by a surviving server in the event that one server fails. See information about cluster file systems in the Oracle Solaris Cluster Concepts Guide.
