Cluster is a Bison Trails specific term. A cluster is a network-specific node(s) and its supporting infrastructure, such as load balancing tools and monitoring and alerting services. Bison Trails never launches a node independent from a cluster as the additional infrastructure is a crucial part of ensuring the node remains secure and accessible.
You can learn more about the components of a cluster in our guide to blockchain infrastructure.
