Teradata Viewpoint servers can be clustered to guarantee high availability and scalability. A high availability configuration maintains availability during planned and unplanned outages. This configuration requires at least two Viewpoint servers; one active and one standby. The servers form a cluster.
Each Teradata Viewpoint server in a cluster shares the same users, roles, permissions, preferences, and collected data from monitored systems.
Teradata Viewpoint provides automatic failover to a standby Viewpoint server during most failure situations. This means that the monitoring and control capabilities are still available.
There are different cluster configurations, all providing high availability. You can add additional Teradata Viewpoint servers to support a large number of users, or to enhance cache database performance.
