ACE in clustered server environment

An ACE server, where a small 1000 tag PI system also resides, is being set up on a clustered server for redundancy. Will ACE calculation failover will happen automatically when this server is clustered under Microsoft Clustering services?

 

Here's an MSDN clustering link that seems relevant.

Does anyone have experience with this?  Do objects from the Microsoft Cluster Automation Server need to be incorporated into the ACE code in order to provide redundancy of the ACE calculations?  I'd like to get redundancy of not only the PI data associated with this server, but also have automatic failover of the ACE calculations.  Can (should?) the C/C++ failover cluster API be used with ACE and Visual Studio 2008?
