Your company decided to cluster your web application. There is one powerful multi-CPU box which can easily host 4 instances of application server, and there are 4 stand-alone boxes, each capable of hosting a single instance of web application with the same level of CPU and memory dedicated to it as in the case of a single powerful server.
Referring to the scenario above, what is the benefit of deploying on 4 single boxes instead of the multi-CPU box?
Choice 1 Your cluster will have fewer database calls. Choice 2 Your cluster will provide better availability. Choice 3 You cluster will have smaller log files. Choice 4 Your cluster will perform better due to more optimal java heap memory management. Choice 5 Your cluster will start up faster.
Which one is correct?
