Swapnil,
Clustering is when multiple copies of the application are running at the same time. This allows the application to handle more load. Clusters can be on the same machine or on different physical boxes or both.

Have you read this article yet? It describes which implementations support clustering.

Thanks again
i read this article but you can see that in this article they specify that the EHCache implementation doesn't support clustering .I want to know what is mean by it is not support clustering and what is cluster in this case . i know in database you can maintain the cluster which help you in faster access of data how the hibernate make the cluster for handling the data ?.

They are talking about application clustering and not the configuration of the database. Your database is responsible for database clustering. Hibernate runs in the application.
