A web server cluster is a group of independent web servers that are managed as a single system for higher availability, easier manageability, and greater scalability. Without having centralized control of the web server cluster, management of the cluster becomes difficult. It is critical that remote management of the cluster be done through a designated management system acting as a single access point.
