Today we’re happy to announce a new document titled “Block Replication with Filesystem Encryption” which showcases another wonderful use case for DRBD.
At Hosting Con, back in April of this year, some colleagues of mine ran into some representatives from Randtronics. Randtronics is the company responsible for the DPM (Data Privacy Management) software suite. This software suite provides file encryption, user management, ACLs, and more. I could imagine this software would prove useful to those in fields where data privacy is an absolute must. Fields such as the medical, legal, human resources, or intellectual property, quickly come to mind.

After a brief discussion with us regarding just how versatile DRBD can be it was decided to see if perhaps DRBD could work seamlessly with DPM. Randtronic’s DPM can help protect your data from prying eyes, or those who may wish to steal it, but can it protect your data from system failures? When teamed up with DRBD you can be assured that your data is both secure and available.
I worked briefly with Gary Lansdown of Randtronics to introduce him to asciidoc, but I must give credit to Randtronics for this document.
