Marathon everrun ft y ha l.jpg

Marathon EverRUN FT y HA

EverRUN FT: “Aplicaciones donde el cliente no puede tener perdida de servicio en entornos físicos.

Requiere máquinas exactamente iguales.

Máximo 1 CPU por máquina.

EverRUN HA: “Alta Disponibilidad para aplicaciones en entorno físico”.

Ventajas con respecto al Cluster MS: necesita 2003 Enterprise y Storage Compartido, con EverRun MS Estándar y Storage Local.


Comprehensive solutions automated application availability l.jpg

Comprehensive SolutionsAutomated Application Availability

  • How do everRun FT & HA work?

    • Patented architecture creates a single virtual server with a fault-tolerant I/O subsystem using two mirrored physical servers

    • ComputeThru® failures vs. traditional failover approaches

    • Intelligent Policy Management – automated vs. scripted

Slide15 l.jpg

everRun VMUnique Architecture – VM Fault-Tolerance in Software

  • Installs directly onto a pair of Citrix XenServer hosts

    • Thin software layer between hypervisor and VM environment

  • Auto-creates and maintains identical PVM on alternate host

    • “Active” VM is paired with a “Ready” VM

    • Assured recovery if Active VM host fails

  • PVM’s I/O resources are transparently paired

    • Aggregated across both XenServer hosts

    • Fully redundant networking & storage

    • “ComputeThru” device failures

  • Availability Manager attaches to each PVM

    • Mini Linux VM, manages I/O redirection

    • Automated error detection, fault handling


Flexibility to dial in availability by vm l.jpg

Flexibility to “Dial-in” Availability by VM

  • Simple “click-through” operation to protect VM’s

  • Future product releases will allow different protection levels for each VM

  • Choose appropriate level of availability per application
