Adding HACMP/XD support to IBM TotalStorage DSCLI Metro Mirror using DS6000, along with a combination of DS8000 and DS6000
May 19, 2006
IBM High Availability Cluster Multiprocessing (HACMP*) Extended Distance (HACMP/XD) Version 5 has extended its Metro Mirror support with not only the previously supported IBM TotalStorage* DS8000 series but also with the IBM TotalStorage DS6000 series.
Additionally, HACMP/XD now supports the combination of DS8000 and DS6000 in a Metro Mirror configuration.
Metro Mirror attributes of the above storage are designed to provide real-time synchronous mirroring of logical volumes between two systems that can be located up to 300 km from each other. With the addition of HACMP/XD Metro Mirror support, HACMP/XD provides a layer to your solution that enables automatic failover and recovery to a remote site in the case of a disaster.
