Hello. I have projected a high availability solution to my datacenter using two sites distanced by 100 meters.
Site 1 I will have Two intel Hosts with Vmware Entreprise Plus, 1 Storage FC HP/EMC/IBM or DELL, 1 San Switch 8 gbps, 1 Ethernet Switch
Site 2 I will have Two intel Hosts with Vmware Enterprise Plus, 1 Storage FC HP/EMC/IBM or DELL, 1 San Switch 8 gbps, 1 Ethernet Switch
All hosted applications are automatically distribuited between 4 hosts. 2 hosts can fail and
all will keep running ok. 1 Switch San can Fail and all will keep running ok. 1 Switch Ethernet can fail and all will keep running ok . But the problem is one of the STORAGEs fails. I imagine a solution to replicate Storages Active - Active between sites, but I have not found a affordable solution to permit a quick restabilishment of services (till 10 minutes) to restabilish environment when occurs a site disaster, for instance. Vmware SRM is very expensive.
I need to find another solution (storage, software, hardware etc) which permit execute such quick recover. The only resctritcion is : need to use VMWARE Enterprise Plus, Storages must be Fibre Channel HP,DELL,EMC or IBM
I imagine, maybe one type of FC Storage or third party software / hardware, could have the necessary resource to perform this achievement...
If you need more information, please ask me.
