Cisco ANA Gateway High Availability Solution
Minimize downtime and protect revenue base with high available network management.
Cisco Active Network Abstraction (ANA) is a carrier-class network management foundation for service providers to respond efficiently to the constant market demand for new, reliable, and more sophisticated services, while hiding the complexity of large, multivendor, multi-technology networks. As the network infrastructure gets larger, the potential impact of network management downtime is greater. Cisco and Symantec have jointly developed and certified a high availability solution for the ANA gateways to minimize the downtime and to protect the revenue base. This solution covers the high availability mechanisms designed to handle hardware failures, operating system failures, and power failures. The Cisco ANA Gateway High Availability solution is available for local and geographical redundancy, leveraging Symantec's Veritas Storage Foundation (Volume Management and Replication) and Veritas Cluster Server software.
