    I've never heard of game hosters using any kind of clustering method to improve the reliability of their games. Do you mean common game servers such as counterstrike?

    As far as network consultants go, you might want to contact Jeff at Innovative Network Concepts:

    The best you're going to be able to do with clustering is to have multiple servers available to take over for a failed server. Anyone currently connected to a game when the server fails will be disconnected, but when they reconnect, they'll connect to the backup server.

    It would also be useful if you stated where you are geographically.

    Could you let us know where you are and if there are any actual requirements in terms of academic degree?

    It could be a web based game as that's likely the only type of game I realisticly see being clustered or load balanced besides a major graphical MMO running on a customized *nix cluster. Still, you might need someone experienced as a sysadmin or programmer to tie all the pieces together to make it work.
