Huntsman Security’s High Availability delivers active-passive or active-active system failover with fully resilient, reliable security monitoring without interruptions or service downtime. The capability can be added to all Huntsman Security products.
What is High Availability?
The capability is defined as:
An agreed level of operational performance, or up-time, for a higher than normal period
With the demise of the 9-5 working day and the growing demand for 24/7 processing power, networks are increasingly required to have guaranteed up-time for business continuity.
An Active-Passive System runs servers on Primary Nodes. Should the system fail, then the servers are switched to Secondary Nodes.
An Active-Active System runs servers on the Primary and Secondary Nodes simultaneously, with independent workloads, until one fails over.
When fail over occurs, the secondary companion takes over operations from the primary companion.
