This article relates to Support of Microsoft Windows Server 2003 Clustering
 article, so please read it before, to be familiar with currnet one.

In this article we describe how Virtuozzo services can be clustered. VEs and all related meta information are located on a shared storage. Active Virtuozzo servers are connected to the shared storage when VEs are running. Passive Virtuozzo servers do not access the shared storage until failover. When a Virtuozzo, OS or hardware failure is detected on one of the active servers, cluster software automatically relocates all the VEs to one of the passive servers.

This clustering scenario requires that:

 - Clustering software is installed on physical host; so VEs are typically non-cluster aware.
 - All VEs and relevant meta data are located on a shared storage.
