I agree with Gail and I think that's the key to answering this question. What kind of clustering are you talking about?
I don't believe the original question you were asked has anything to do with "clustering" in SQL Server (but, I could certainly be wrong there). At a previous job, we had 3 web servers. Now, I'm not a web engineer and I don't know the first thing about how to go about setting up a web server but the folks I worked with did. They called the 3 web servers a "cluster" and they said the cluster was "load balanced" because the cluster was meant to serve the entire nation. They also said that they could have used "regional" clustering but that would have caused problems because of the difference in time zones across the country.
My recommendation is that you do what I just did... Google the term "clustering agent" and find out that a product called "Veritas" uses the term and that it's also a common term used in conjunction with both Java and C programming in conjuction with GUI's. Better yet, find a Java and a C forum and ask the same question.
