For cluster systems consisting of multiple nodes and shared servers which consist of an on-line and a backup server, we propose a hot-standby scheme of shared servers. In this scheme for shared servers, the shared servers have user data and control data. The on-line shared server sends only the control data to the backup server when it receives an update command. When the on-line shared server fails, the backup shared server reconstructs the shared data by using the latest control data sent from the on-line server and the user data sent from each node. We evaluated the system recovery time and the performance overhead for the hot-standby scheme. This enables the system recovery time to be shortened to 30 seconds and the performance overhead to be reduced to 2%.
