This article is about high availability or disaster recovery and fail-over for Linux on Power virtual machines (VMs) or logical partitions (LPARs). The solution works for all Linux distributions available for IBM POWER8 and later processor-based servers. Open source software used in this solution are: DRBD and heartbeat, which are available for all supported distributions. We have used Ubuntu v16.04, supported on IBM Power servers to explain and verify the solution.
