Short Take: Novell to ship new clustering software

Networking software provider Novell announced its intentions to ship new clustering software by the end of this month. The Novell High Availability Server for NetWare, priced at $3,895, is targeted at users of the NetWare 4.11 operating system, with support for the soon-to-be-released NetWare 5.0 upgrade coming shortly, according to the company. The software allows two servers to act as an "active" cluster in a two-machine fail-over setting, meaning both computers can handle a task while providing a secondary option if one fails.
