Many of us have had trick-or-treaters come to our door selling a hardware-only HADR solution for our Rocket U2 systems. And as scary as it seems, some of us even bought that hardware-only solution thinking it was going to work.
I want to share a story with you of someone who was haunted by this very decision. This particular customer was using SAN to SAN replication. When their primary server failed, they moved over to the replicating system only to discover that some files were broken. The hardware-only solution just replicated broken files from one system to another.
Their hardware-only solution failed just when they needed to rely upon it most.
I bet the hair on the back of your neck just stood up knowing this could happen to you, too.
Beware! Don’t let your hardware-only solution come back to haunt you!
For a complete HADR solution, U2 Replication must be used. Visit us at the Rocket U2 HADR Portal for details.
