History of Windows Clustering !

Today I was reading the Microsoft Premier Filed Engineering blog and came across an Excellent post written by Martin Lucas MSFT.  Martin is one of the Senior member with Microsoft Premier Field Engineering Team and he Started his career with Microsoft supporting Windows NT 3.1 and 3.5 till the latest Windows Server 2012.

This post has quite significance for Martin and us, as this was his last post on the Ask PFE blog before he took retirement from Microsoft this October and he has written this post in such a way that we would travel with him on the journey from early days of Windows Clustering when it was introduced to it's present extraordinary state.

Clustering is an excellent feature and not most of would have had the opportunity like Martin had with it for almost 16 years. He decided to write this post to show us how things started and evolved in terms of Clustering with Windows Server.
