Webinar: How to Choose a Proper Failover and Set Up High Availability

Published: April 13, 2021

Failover strategies exist not only to help avoid split-brain but also to determine how the High Availability (HA) will function. Choosing a proper failover strategy may save your day literally. The webinar will discuss failover strategies overall, particularly HeartBeat and Node Majority, their pros and cons, and how to properly configure a storage-level HA cluster using either of them.

Technical Paper: Creating Highly Available device using Node Majority Failover Strategy

The simultaneous connection loss between nodes may cause “split brain” scenario, the state when nodes proceed read and write requests independently from each other. This incoordination causes data corruption after connection resumption. Setting up the failover strategy helps avoid the issue. This technical paper describes setting up an HA device using the Node Majority Failover Strategy with Witness Node on StarWind Virtual SAN as a storage provider.
