SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension — Improve Service Availability

Mixed clustering of both physical and virtual Linux servers. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension’s powerful graphical and command line tools let you save time and be more productive. Virtual servers are increasingly being used by organizations seeking to improve resource utilization and responsiveness. Many IT managers like you are looking at clustering virtual servers together to improve services availability, since the low overhead associated with a virtual standby node makes it well suited for this purpose. As workloads become consolidated among fewer physical servers, it becomes increasingly important that those systems be highly available. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension is one of the few clustering solutions available in the market, today, that supports the mixed clustering of both physical and virtual Linux servers. This versatile solution offers you unprecedented flexibility, and enables you to simultaneously improve both services availability and resource utilization.

Minimize Data Loss

Eliminate your anxiety over data loss. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension’s real-time synchronization quickly restores clustered services and its intelligent locking mechanisms maintain data integrity. Use your existing IT infrastructure and our applications to ensure data integrity. All companies use data, and do their best to ensure that sensitive company information and intellectual property are secure. With SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension, you can protect your data assets using your existing IT infrastructure, minimizing data loss due to corruption or failure. SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability delivers continuous, real-time replication of data, which means that multiple copies of data are available at all times. The ability to incrementally synchronize large databases and data repositories reduces data recovery times. And built-in locking mechanisms make sure that only one application can access shared storage at a time, to ensure data integrity.

Geo Clustering

Distributed Replicated Block Device (DRBD) is a leading open source networked disk management tool, DRBD enables you to build single partitions from multiple disks that mirror each other and make data highly available. Node recovery with Relax and Recover (formerly ReaR) enables a quick return to full operational status after a node failure. It allows the administrator to take a full snapshot of the system and restore this snapshot on recovery hardware after a disaster. This feature is included on the x86 and x86-64 architectures.

Administrators who lack in-depth knowledge of Linux clustering can use the simple wizards and templates included in SUSE Linux Enterprise High Availability Extension to quickly complete basic set-up tasks. Cluster Join enables effortless cluster set-up and expansion of existing clusters. Once you build a node or cluster, you can add new nodes without the need to manually replicate configurations. The Cluster Bootstrap offers a menu driven set-up process for rapidly deploying a base cluster.
