3.1. Red Hat High Availability Add-On Resource Overview

A cluster resource is an instance of program, data, or application to be managed by the cluster service.

This standardization is based on industry approved frameworks and classes, which makes managing the availability of various cluster resources transparent to the cluster service itself.
