Technical Overview Managed High Availability iSCSI is an appliance that runs on two dedicated servers. The primary/hot-spare arrangement uses DRBD for block level replication and Pacemaker for cluster management. We combine these technologies with a layer of additional monitoring, management, and deployment software to create a start to finish solution that combines industry standard software with best practice quality controls. How Does it Work? If a server experiences an issue an automatic failover is initiated based on health reporting provided by Linux Pacemaker software. All cluster resources, including data and IP addresses, are brought up on the hot-spare, and traffic flows normally to your cluster. How Does it Replicate? Block level replication is provided by DRBD over a 10Gbps connection. Block replication is agnostic for content, filesystem, or partitioning, allowing you maximum flexibility and portability. How Does This Product Affect My Application? Managed High Availability iSCSI can be mounted on any server environment that supports iSCSI, and is designed from the ground up to be totally transparent to your application. Our teams can configure any Core or Fully managed server to use HA-iSCSI instead of a local disk.
