High Availability (HA) versions of Storage Foundation products include Cluster Server to automatically detect and recover from database or system failures.
The HA version utilizes a specific, intelligent agent that has been optimized for each database or application (such as DB2, Sybase or Oracle). The agent provides proactive monitoring and management of multi-node environments and enables automatic, policy-based failover. When a system or database failure is detected, all running instances are gracefully shut down before restarting the entire database, file system, or application on a separate healthy server. The HA Version also supports manual failover for system upgrades or maintenance. Up to 32 nodes can be centrally managed via a single user interface.
With the HA Version, file systems, databases and applications can remain online at all times.
