I had prepared a fairly detailed response to this, but then I thought "this sounds a bit like an exam question".

So tell us more; let us have details of your server setup, what backup measures you currently use, and why you ask the question.

pleases for your own safety avoid cluster there are horrible, i would just for for a simple mirror, raid is a lot easier so when one drive fails the second is there and then you can just replace the failed drive and rebuild the new one. plus you can always backup to and external device.

daniel.marriott clustering has been a round for a long time and is a successful stratagy to address server failover something raid can not protect you from. Any implemention is only as good as the studywork time put into it.

ijack I think your instints are good :-)

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Intresting to see you address mirroring and clustering. Neither of them have anything to do with backups.

i know that clusters are a good fail safe but from a personal view we have one customer with cluster and it causes a lot of problems.

Then your customer's cluster isn't setup right or has hardware issues. We have quite a few clusters where I work and each and every one of them is working just fine.

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
