1.1.1. Setting Up Hardware

Setting up hardware consists of connecting cluster nodes to other hardware required to run a Red Hat Cluster. The amount and type of hardware varies according to the purpose and availability requirements of the cluster. Typically, an enterprise-level cluster requires the following type of hardware (refer to Figure 1.1, “Red Hat Cluster Hardware Overview”). For considerations about hardware and other cluster configuration concerns, refer to Chapter 2, Before Configuring a Red Hat Cluster or check with an authorized Red Hat representative.
