DRBD Proxy

DRBD Proxy mirrors your data to a secondary location and automatically migrates services during a primary site outage

DRBD Proxy Overview

DRBD Proxy enables asynchronous data replication from your primary site to a Disaster Recovery location, all using standard X86, ARM, or IBM Power servers. It can replicate data from your primary site to the public cloud, between campuses, or between public cloud instances to ensure protection during full site outages. LINBIT can configure automatic fail-overs between sites to ensure minimal downtime when an outage occurs. The DRBD Proxy software will replicate any application or database. With a High Availability background of over 15 years, you can rest assured that LINBIT’s DRBD Proxy software is a reliable platform for your storage. Even better, since the software performs at the block level in the stack, its replication performance is unparalleled.

Technical Information

Off-site protection

Whether for regulatory compliance or peace of mind, an off-site replica of your data is designed to protect your important information during critical site outages, natural disasters, and other unfortunate circumstances. As a crucial part of your business continuity plan, LINBIT is dedicated to keeping your services applications up and running during even the most critical failures.

Common Use Cases

  • Real time replica in Amazon AWS
  • Connecting 2 or more company campuses
  • Moving offices without downtime
  • Off-site replicas for users in disaster prone areas
  • Hosting providers who’s customers need a DR feature

Peace of mind

Unlike many proprietary vendors who make you purchase an expensive black box with licensed hardware and software and charge per machine Socket or per Gigabyte transferred, DRBD Proxy’s costs are per host/node. This makes Enterprise Level Disaster Recovery affordable for businesses of all sizes.

Near real-time replication

DRBD Proxy mitigates bandwidth, latency, and distance issues by buffering writes into memory ensuring that your WAN latency doesn’t become your disk throughput. Data is transferred as fast as your link can handle. Your organization can ensure Synchronous High Availability locally and Asynchronous Disaster Recovery replication off-site by using DRBD and DRBD Proxy together.

Cutting edge compression

To further mitigate bandwidth, latency, and distance constraints, DRBD Proxy includes native LZMA and LZ4 data compression options. For users looking to replicate an extensive amount of data using minimal CPU, LINBIT has partnered with AHA data compression hardware to minimize the CPU usage during data compression.

Not a backup

Our products are not backup solutions, they are real time replication solutions. We still recommend a sound snapshot technology is used along side our products. Real-time replication solutions like ours allow for minimal interruption during disasters.
