In this video Matt Kereczman from LINBIT combines components of LINBIT SDS and LINBIT to demonstrate extending an existing LINSTOR managed DRBD volume to a disaster recovery node, located in a geographically-separated datacenter via LINSTOR and DRBD proxy.
Watch the video:
He’s already created a LINSTOR cluster on four nodes: linstor-a, linstor-b, linstor-c and linstor-dr.
You can see that linstor-dr is in a different network than our other three nodes. This network exists in the DR DC, which is connected to our local DC via a 40Mb/s WAN link.
He has a single DRBD resource defined, which is currently replicated synchronously between the three peers in our local datacenter. He’s listed out his LINSTOR-managed resources and volumes which is currently mounted on linstor-a:
Before he adds a replica of this volume to the DR node in his DR datacenter, he’ll quickly test the write throughput of his DRBD device, so he has a baseline of how well it should perform.
He uses the dd to test. Read more
