High Availability Version

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.
  • Includes Cluster Server, the Industry's #1 Clustering Solution
  • Includes a specific agent for different databases and applications to provide custom monitoring and failover

Replicator Option adds disaster recovery to Storage Foundation products. With the Replicator Option, data can be replicated from any storage device over any distance on any IP network.
Replicator Option supports both synchronous and asynchronous replication and can guarantee write-order fidelity for your mission-critical data.
  • Protect data by replicating it to a remote site
  • Replicate data on any storage, over any distance, on any IP network
