    We have always felt more servers is the safest route in case of problems.

    Now with clustering built into cpanel what are the benefits if we change?

    Has anyone changed to this format?

    Just curious about this new option and what the experiences with it has been so far.

    Thanks guys,

    I am also curious to this.

    I was under the impression that having a DNS master system was a better way of going so that if the DNS crashes, it doesn't bring every other service down with it.

    I always thought segmenting a network was much better than building it all in one environment. IEL: If the DNS crashes, it doesn't take the whole server down with it.

    I would like to know what the advantages are? Maybe I'm wrong and we're still going to be using a primary server however would like someone to elaborate a bit.

    Warmest regards,
