Walter Explains High Availability

Hi, my name’s Walter, and I’m your virtual IT director. Today, I would like to talk to you about high availability.

Today’s digital 24/7 always-on world has no tolerance for IT downtime or for the loss of valuable data. Company applications must be continuously available and run with absolutely no interruptions. Every minute in which data cannot be accessed is extremely costly.

DataCore zero-touch auto-failover and recovery mirroring is well-proven in the real world at over 10,000 customer sites to prevent a scenario of this kind. I/O events are replicated in real time, and data is written and simultaneously stored on two separate virtual disk storage locations that can reside on different types of storage within the same building or stretched across town to provide greater protection against site-level incidents.

DataCore automatically and consistently syncs the data in separate virtualization nodes so that any changes made to one are also updated in the secondary. Unlike others, both sites can run production workloads as an active-active pair and take over for the other in a failover incident. This lets you get full utilization from your investments and guarantees that there are always two useful copies of disk data with identical bit structures available to applications in operation.
