First of all, let me apologize for my simple questions: I'm just learning
about cluster servers; the boss said "Here. Find out what you can about
this." Thanks. I tried contacting Support, but they blew me off and the
Customer Services page is down.
1. Does Cluster Server handle the startup/shutdown of a server similar to
what FirstWatch does?
2. Can Cluster Server fail over to another apps server if one fails, to
a standby server, or either?

Cluster Server can handle application.
You may only write startup/shutdown modules when you used FirstWatch.
You must write online(startup)/offline(shutdown)/monitor(similar to
FirstWatch agent.test) modules when you use Cluster Server.
Monitor module is very important to Cluster Server, because Cluster
Server use a "monitor" function to check application health.
