How effectively prevent a decrease in performance?
When your organization has several regional branches located all around the world, you probably need Asynchronous Volume Replication more than Synchronous Volume Replication, despite the fact that the second solution provides the shortest time to restore system functionality and minimize data loss in case of outage. If your servers are located in remote locations - for example one server is in U.S, and a second in Asia, Asynchronous Volume Replication is the mechanism which will prevent a decrease in performance when saving files to storage. When changes in files are replicated asynchronously - the write speed of data to storage is not limited by the speed of the connection between servers. So, if you have a slow internet connection in one location (like 10 Mbit / sec), the speed of writing data to the array when using asynchronous volume replication will not fall to the speed of the connection.
How to get the benefits of Asynchronous Volume Replication in a different way?
So what can you do when you need that feature and you know that it’s not available on our software? In response to such needs, we have prepared an equivalent solution that will provide the same benefits as the aforementioned mechanism, but in a different way. Are you ready for a complete, detailed solution that will ensure you uninterrupted and fast asynchronous volume replication of a database to a remote location? If yes, this document describes solution that can be used as a replacement for Asynchronous Volume Replication in any customer’s environment. More about this solution you will find on our blog post.
