Overview

Transparent to your applications and databases, data is seamlessly replicated, eliminating single points of failure within your IT infrastructure. DRBD prevents data loss during hardware failures, automatically recovering systems in seconds by combining DRBD with Pacemaker. LINBIT includes Full installation and support for both components in our Enterprise Support offerings.

Windows Server Failover Clustering provides infrastructure features that support the high-availability and disaster recovery scenarios of hosted server applications such as Microsoft SQL Server and Microsoft Exchange. If a cluster node or service fails, the services that were hosted on that node can be automatically or manually transferred to another available node in a process known as failover.
