Copying files over to HA server
Posted on 2012-08-25
I have an application server, which I will call App1. It's a standard client-server application.
The application server generates some files (the vendor refers to them as Child Files for some reason). They are generated every now and then per user (we have about 500 users/ server), and are sort of like temp files. Eventually, they get deleted by the application and are used like a buffer.
Anyway, the application is working fine and we have no real problems.
But we want to implement a High Availability/ DR partner for this server in another Data Center (DC) like we do for all our other major apps. The problem is these Child Files need that need to be replicated across.
For test DR events, we manually copy the files across to the DR partner before initiating DR, and this works fine, but it's very very slow (copying the files across takes some hours).
The application servers are all running Windows 2008 Server (virtualised).
Can anyone recommend a good, real-time, application or feature thart we can use to keep these files continually replicating across?
