Using Windows Network Load Balancing Manager you can create a cluster with two or more nodes running Windows Server 2003 and set up to work as Windows Streaming Media Servers. This cluster will be used for streaming media on the Internet and will appear to users as one Streaming Media Server. Should one cluster node fail, another node will take over streaming media. This way you can ensure uninterrupted streaming of media as well as fair distribution of network traffic between the cluster nodes. Combining this with metaSAN's file-level sharing capabilities in a SAN environment, you can deploy a network in which media files to be streamed are stored on the SAN volumes and are made accessible directly over the Fibre Channel to other workstations too.
