Any hardware failures on the active node will cause it to fail over to the passive node. Load-balanced front end servers – The front end servers will consist of a load-balanced cluster. All connections (OWA, IMAP, POP, SMTP) will be distributed among these servers. If one server fails, the connections will be distributed to another machine. Decrease in maintenance – The redundant architecture will allow patches to be deployed to one node at a time, while it is inactive. Then the activity will be failed over to the patched node so the other server can be patched.
