Key points of the webinar:

  • Characteristics of a stretched cluster, why it is needed, and how to use it
  • Description of stretched cluster scenarios
  • Conditions needed to configure a stretched cluster between buildings and sites and make it highly available (HA) with an active-active replication
  • Role of the Heartbeat Failover Strategy and Node Majority Failover Strategy in creating HA devices and preventing split-brain
  • Ways of keeping data secure
  • Demo-time: building a stretched cluster

Are you a VMware or Hyper-V user, or maybe a system administrator who wants to deploy a stretched cluster in your IT environment? Do you experience any difficulties in this process or want to keep your data secure under any unforeseen circumstances, including hurricanes, tsunamis, and earthquakes? We will answer all your questions and tell tips and tricks on how to build the cluster between different separate geographical locations and do not lose the mission-critical data. A stretched cluster allows combining servers into a single system, providing high availability (HA) and load balancing. With its help, you can easily migrate your VMs from one place to another. And the geographical location is absolutely irrelevant in this case! That is why you can make sure of the safety of your data even during an earthquake of 10.0 scores on the Richter scale! Learn from this video about a stretched cluster differentiation, replication options for it, different deployment scenarios, ways to secure data and prevent split brain.
