The following question was recently submitted via e-mail by a user:
I currently use SAN based clusters with 10 2-node passive and active clusters. They work fine, but I want to know: What happens if we shut down the nodes unexpectedly (eg, power failure) and when we go to start them, they don't work? In other words, what if we have to restore from backup, having backed up nothing but the stores...can we do it?
How do most enterprises do their cluster backups?
