How to Cluster SQL Server Analysis Services

Summary: One approach for meeting your organization’s high availability requirements for Analysis Services is to install it on a Windows Server failover cluster (WSFC). A WSFC is composed of multiple servers that offer redundancy in the event of a hardware failure, system crash, or some other service disruption. A WSFC can offer protection of your mission critical backend servers, including the Analysis Services instances running your BI workloads.
