Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS)
Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS) is a service that provides high availability (HA) for applications
such as databases, messaging and file and print services.
MSCS was first introduced in Windows Server 2003 to support server clustering. A cluster
connects two or more servers together so that they appear as a single computer to clients.
