CompTIA Security+ Question B-65

Which of the following can Peter, a security administrator, use to distribute the processing effort when generating hashes for a password cracking program?

B. Clustering
C. Redundancy
D. Virtualization

Answer: B

Anytime you connect multiple computers to work/act together as a single server, it is known as clustering. Clustered systems utilize parallel processing (improving performance and availability) and add redundancy. Server clustering is used to provide failover capabilities / redundancy in addition to scalability as demand increases.
