Preparing for high availability

To support installation of InfoSphere® MDM in high-availability environments, you can configure multiple instances on multiple host servers. By doing so, if one server or instance goes down, the others can continue to process traffic.

The MDM operational server uses an IBM® WebSphere® Application Server container and can be deployed on single server or on a cluster as configured in the container. The cluster can be pre-configured on the server. The installer can detect a clustered environment and deploy to that environment by using a custom installation.

Review the installation scenarios (graphical or silent) before you begin the installation to better understand how to support high availability and clustered environment requirements.
