geo-dispersed cluster

Microsoft Cluster Server (MSCS) is a term used to describe a cluster configuration where the servers are separated geographically and the physical storage is synchronously replicated among the sites. In a geo-dispersed cluster both the public and private network interfaces have to exist in the same network segment, and cluster nodes also must share the same IP subnet. Also called multi-site cluster.

See cluster.
