The datacenters of today’s global businesses are often located in various sites around the world. And in order to help ensure their safety, the data is often replicated both within sites and between sites. This cross-site replication is challenging as links between sites are often bandwidth constrained and have high latency.
In this session, Bela Ban will provide an overview of Red Hat JBoss Data Grid’s cross-site replication functionality, which stores data redundantly across multiple sites. He will also briefly discuss architecture and configuration.
For the majority of the session, Bela will demonstrate the product’s response to two scenarios: 1) site failure (where he’ll kill a site) and 2) follow-the-sun (where he’ll demonstrate a graceful failover from one site to another). In both cases, attendees will see that client failover from one site to another site is achieved while the data is still available.
Attendees are encouraged to fire up their own clients, create some data, and verify that their data is preserved across site failures during the session. They will leave the session with a better understanding of what cross-site clustering is and how to configure and run it, as well as Red Hat and JBoss Community plans for the future of xsite replication.
