A Kaspersky failover cluster provides high availability of Kaspersky Security Center and minimizes downtime of Administration Server in case of a failure. The failover cluster is based on two identical instances of Kaspersky Security Center installed on two computers. One of the instances works as an active node and the other one is a passive node. The active node manages protection of the client devices, while the passive one is prepared to take all of the functions of the active node in case the active node fails. When a failure occurs, the passive node becomes active and the active node becomes passive.
Hardware and software requirements
To deploy a Kaspersky failover cluster, you must have the following hardware:
Make sure you have provided high network bandwidth between the file server, and the active and passive nodes.
The failover cluster switches protection management of the client devices from the active node to the passive node if any of the following events occurs on the active node:
