Within a Usenet cluster, an individual server is referred to as a newsgroup server. A newsgroup server may also be used to refer to a provider of newsgroup services like Giganews or the specific address you connect to (example: news.giganews.com). Giganews utilizes patent-pending technology to cluster our newsgroup servers so they can act as a team during periods of isolated outages or increased load. What this means to our members is practically no downtime during planned maintenance, more robust systems in the case of sudden increases in traffic, and a much faster Usenet experience overall.
