Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering Support Information

Validation status of Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering

This section provides information on validated configurations that work with Windows Server 2008 Failover Clustering. They have been tested based on the Microsoft Failover Clustering Configuration Program (FCCP).
FCCP is a new support program with Windows Server 2008 designed for cluster systems. FCCP replaces the previous Cluster Logo Program*.  
Based on the information, you can check if your Windows Server 2008 cluster configuration has been validated and select the most suitable configuration for your requirements.
Please also review the Precautions when using Windows Server 2008.

* The Cluster Logo Program used with Windows Server 2003.
