Software Defined Storage for Block I/O
Storage is one of the most critical components in any cloud environment. It has to be easy to provision, highly reliable, cost effective and ideally running on commodity hardware.
The principal goal of a high availability solution is to minimize or mitigate the impact of downtime.
The principal goal of disaster recovery is to restore your systems and data to a previous state in the event of a failure or loss of a location.
DRBD SDS is in OpenStack, so it integrates seamlessly with your Private Cloud Environment and runs on commodity hardware, other cloud OSs and virtualization platforms.
DRBD seamlessly replicates data, transparent to your applications and databases. Service is recovered within seconds when used in combination with Pacemaker.
DRBD can mirror data asynchronously over long distances, forming an important building block of your disaster recovery plan. Geo-Clustering with automatic fail-over is possible.
