14 Key Features and Benefits DeploymentOptions2 to 32 nodes, Active/Active, Active/Passive, Cascading/Prioritized Failover, Nto1, 1toN, Physical and VirtualSupport for Fibre Channel SAN, iSCSI, NAS, Host-based Replication, Array Based Replication or a combinationStorageEnsure data integrity with SCSI reservations. No need for external STONITH devices.I/O FencingMonitor the status of protected servers, communication paths, resources and applications via the GUI, CLI or SMTP / SNMP alerts.MonitorConsistentArchitectureProven, reliable product architecture. Ability to perform rolling upgrade of clusters in place – without downtime
15 SteelEye Data Replication (SDR) Key Features:Host-based data replication leveraging existing LAN/WANMulti-target ReplicationAutomatic reversal of source/target during failoverBlock-Level, Volume/LUN replicationFile system agnostic – handles in-use/missing filesVery low overhead – only changes are replicated3 Modes: Synchronous, Asynchronous or PeriodicPrevents full re-syncs via Intent Logging and bitmap supportBandwidth Throttling and 9 Levels of CompressionUtilize available bandwidth without the need for expensive hardware accelerators/devicesContinuous Data Protection with Data Rewind and Recovery Wizard
16 Easy to Learn and Use Simplified User Interface Monitor and Administer your clusters via a single, intuitive interfaceWizard-based setupJava-Based UI can be run as an application or browser based appletCommand Line Interface (CLI) and SDK for integration and extension
17 Architecture/Deployment Thank You!SPS for LinuxArchitecture/DeploymentExamples
18 Customer Example 1Large Telco & Cable Provider: Content Distribution Service“Classic” Shared Storage Cluster: leveraging Fibre Channel SAN storage.Customer deployed 17-node clusters across approx. 48 different content distribution locationsProtecting Application Servers and Database in each clusterSCSI reservations provide I/O fencing to ensure data integrity – prevent “rogue operator” scenarioProvides Cascading and prioritized failover of servicesNote: many types of storage and multipath solutions supported.
19 Customer Example 2Central Bank Protecting and Replicating Payment Processing“Shared Nothing” Cluster using SteelEye Data ReplicationHundreds of remote sites aggregating data back to a central locationProtecting Oracle Databases and Custom ApplicationsEliminates the expense and single point of failure of shared storageIdeal for Disaster Recovery configurations:Automated failover protection of replicated data between datacenters
20 Customer Example 3Government customer protecting onboard combat systemsCustomer deployed a “Multi-Site” Cluster – Best of Both Worlds:Robustness of a classic shared storage clusterEfficient data replication to a disaster recovery site.Protecting NFS services mission-critical combat systems depend upon.Supports cascading/prioritized failover with replication redirectionLess expensive and more flexible than storage-based replication solutions. Customer needed to re-use existing mixed hardware/storage.
22 Key Takeaways SteelEye Protection Suite: Best-In-Class Solution for High Availability, Data Replication and Disaster RecoveryScalable to meet your evolving business needsProtection for All Key Elements in the Stack: OS, App, DB, Storage, etcApplication Aware AgentsFlexible Storage ConfigurationsAdvanced I/O FencingEasy to Use, Wizard-driven UI for configuration and managementArchitectural Consistency – proven for 10+ years!1) Our ability to manage availability for all key elements in the stack (OS, HW, Apps, DBs etc.) This follows the weakest link in the chain logic. If a key element has only 95% availability than the highest overall availability the system can have is 95% (even if every other component is 99.99%). There is also a compounding effect. If every element in a system has 99% availability, and there are 5 key elements in the system (server, OS, storage, app, DB) than the overall system only has 95% availability (.99x.99x.99x.99x.99), Most people do not think of this so they undervalue our ARKs and extensions ) Ease of Use - GUI based interface that supports the creation, change and management of clusters through the GUI. This increases productivity, assures fewer mistakes are made (HA is not a good area to be making mistakes) and allows effective continuity management by lesser skilled staff (using GUI rather than scripting to manage availability) ) Proven and stable architecture - SteelEye has used the same HA architecture for 10+ years and for 10,000+ applications all over the world and across every industry. This is important as it reduces the cost of maintenance and ownership (vs. alternative solutions that change their HA architecture every few years) and reduces risks for customers as SteelEye solutions are proven in the real world for 10 years not just in a design lab before the latest release ) Proprietary I/O Fencing technology enables simplified HA solutions and eliminates the need for expensive STONITH devices and quorum servers.
