  • Great Blog, thanks for sharing Charles!

  • After seeing this demo, I can visualize the ability to create an auto-failover environment using some of the systems in the demo. However, I would like to see a demo for that situation.

    I specifically chose a demonstration (with example Runbooks) that would highlight two of the three HVR Failover capabilities (Test and Planned). I had considered Unplanned Failover as a scenario, but could not make it generic enough to publish examples.

    From a technical standpoint, Unplanned Failover for HVR is a bit easier than the other two, since it just leverages whatever is on the "Replica Site". In fact, in an Unplanned Failover scenario, the "Primary Site" is essentially gone.

    I recommend taking a look at the following blog post for more information on "Unplanned Failover" for HVR: (I have also included this and related links in the "External References" area above).

    Thanks for your feedback!
