failover
A mechanism for automatically switching to a standby system when a primary system fails. This type of system design guarantees high availability with limited down-time. A BIRT iHub System cluster has built-in failover capability for its nodes. Each node runs independently. If a node fails, the remaining nodes take over processing automatically without a service interruption.
