    What are the Difference between Load Balancing and Clustering ?

    Lalit Shaktawat Newbie

      Hi all,

       

      I am working on Load Balancing. Load balancing technique I understood. If any one server will down that time request will transferred to another active / up nodes.

      Just now I found a Term Clustering. This thing I am having some confusion.

       

      Cluster is used for using resources from another node or said that there are group of resources that are working for achieving common goal. This statement I am not able to understand.

       

      What types of resources? and how they are are using resources ?

       

      Please explain me with example.

       

      For load balancing : like there are three server : A , B, C. If a is down that time request will transferred to any active server. i.e. B or C.

       

      Thanks and regards
