Hi,
Let's describe the environment:
3 cluster nodes (active-active)
Memory on each node is 64 gig.
Windows Server 2003 R2 Enterprise x64 SP2
How the memory allocation will be on each node (64 gig or 64/3, I assume each node has one SQL Server Instance)

Regards,
Ahmed

It depends. Do you need every clustered instance to work the same if there is a failover? If so, then 64/3 makes sense. If you assume failovers are rare and can live with slightly lower performance, I'd go with 32 on each server and assume that you'll never have more than 1 failure. Or you could assign more and just have less resources for the failed instance.

Thanks Steve,

I have just another concern, if we add new instances on each node, so the memory on each node will be shared between instances I think so.
