High Availability Setup Using Veritas Cluster Server and NetApp Synchronous SnapMirror - One button Failover/Failback with SnapMirror Sync and Veritas Cluster Server

 

 

The document describes a DR implementation where Veritas Cluster Server is used to manage a SnapMirror Sync replication across two sites: "ACME.CORPORATION is primarily a Solaris FC shop where the NetApp filers are their Tier 2 storage platform, Filesystem of choice is VxFS on top of VxVM 5,0 and using DMP as their multipath provider.

 

In terms of host and application resilience ACME uses Symantec Veritas Cluster Server 5.0.

This document has references to two sites – production and DR; however data can be replicated in any direction and must be made easily available after a disaster or a controlled failover.

The requirements of replicating data in any direction and promoting one ‘DR’ site online are provided by SnapMirror however ACME wanted to go a step further using VCS to control failover/failback and automate as much as possible.

This paper documents the NetApp SnapMirror integration with Veritas Cluster Server."
