Hi there Experts,
Assuming that I have 2 identical vSphere infrastructures (servers/storages/networking equipment)
in 2 different countries and there are connected each other via an internet line.
So there is the Site-1 and the DR-Site-2.
-All users are connected and using only Site-1. Every afternoon the Site-1 replicates to DR-Site-2.
-In case of Site-1’s failure the users will be redirected to DR-Site-2.
-Once the Site-1 is operational again the replication procedure will be reversed and the DR-Site-2 will send the “new changes” to Site-1.
-Once they are both synced the users and replication will switch back to Site-1.
The above scenario would be applicable with replication software (i.e. veeam)
and given that the internet line is fast enough, the RTO would be normally less than a day.
- A group of users are connected to Site1 and the rest group of users are connected to DR-Site-2.
Question1: Are the logical assumption of Scenario A correct?
Question2: What kind of network equipment, software and network line would be required in order both Sites to be synchronous at the same time?
