Metro sync disaster recovery (DR) provides two-way synchronous data replication between IBM Spectrum Fusion™ HCI clusters installed at two sites. In the event of a site disaster, applications can be failed over to the second site. The replication between the sites is synchronous, hence, the Metro sync DR solution is only available for metropolitan distance data centers with 40 millisecond latency or less.
The procedures described in this paper for IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI 2.4 Metro sync DR are the same for IBM Storage Fusion HCI 2.5.2 Metro-DR.
This IBM Redpaper publication will help you install and configure the new Metro sync DR function). The use case will show the end to end process with the failover and failback of the WordPress application.
IBM Spectrum Fusion HCI and IBM Spectrum Fusion have become IBM Storage Fusion HCI System and IBM Storage Fusion. This edition uses the IBM Spectrum® brand names and will be updated with the next edition.
