What Are Server Roles?
A server role describes the primary function of a server

• Administrators can dedicate an entire computer to one role or install multiple server roles on a single computer • Each role can include one or more role services or subelement of a role • Server Manager is the tool that is used to install, configure, and remove Server Roles

What Are Server Features?

Server features provide auxiliary or supporting functions to servers

• Typically, administrators add features, not as the primary function of a server, but to augment the functionality of installed roles • Server Manager is the tool that you can use to install, configure, and manage features in Windows Server 2008

What Are Server Features?
Server features are supporting services that can be installed
Examples of server features: • .NET Framework 3.0 • Network Load Balancing • Failover Clustering

What Is Availability?
Availability is a level of service that applications, services, or systems provide, expressed as a percentage of time Highly available services or systems are available more than 99% of the time

High availability: • Requirements differ based on how availability is measured • Does not typically include planned outages when calculating availability

What Is Scalability?
Scalability measures the ability to increase capacity

Scaling up: • Increases the capacity of a single server • Involves adding more or better hardware to a server

Scaling out: • Increases the capacity of an application • Involves adding additional servers to perform processing

What Is Load Balancing?

Load Balancing is a system that increases the scalability and availability of the servers that provide access to data

Other load balancing methods: • A virtual IP address is used to distribute requests between multiple servers • Not suitable for all applications

What Is Failover Clustering?
Private Network

Active Node

Shared Storage Active Node

Public Network

Passive Node
