What's the Cluster?

"A cluster is a group of independent computer systems, referred to as nodes, working together as a unified computing resource. A cluster provides a single name for clients to use and a single administrative interface, and it guarantees that data is consistent across nodes." [MSDN]

What's the Windows Server Failover Clustering?

"A Windows Server Failover Clustering (WSFC) cluster is a group of independent servers that work together to increase the availability of applications and services." [TechNet]
  • It "provides infrastructure features that support the high-availability and disaster recovery scenarios of hosted server applications such as Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange. If a cluster node or service fails, the services that were hosted on that node can be automatically or manually transferred to another available node in a process known as failover.." [docs.microsoft]

What's Failover cluster instance?

"An instance of a Windows service that manages an IP address resource, a network name resource, and additional resources that are required to run one or more applications or services." [MSDN]
