From here (emphasis mine):

A failover cluster instance can run on one or more computers that are participating nodes of a failover cluster. A failover cluster instance contains:

  • A combination of one or more disks in a Microsoft Cluster Service (MSCS) cluster group, also known as a resource group. Each resource group can contain at most one instance of SQL Server.

  • A network name for the failover cluster instance.

  • One or more IP addresses assigned to the failover cluster instance.

  • One instance of SQL Server that includes SQL Server, SQL Server Agent, the Full-text Search (FTS) service, and Replication. You can install a failover cluster with SQL Server only, Analysis Services only, or SQL Server and Analysis Services.

I would suggest reviewing all the documentation on MSDN very carefully before attempting to create a failover cluster in your environment, as there are many considerations and requirements.
