Are you looking for a proven and efficient way to implement a highly available hybrid-cloud solution for your mission-critical applications? AWS’s Outposts are a great option for building a hybrid-cloud environment, but you still need a way to make your applications highly available. Veritas InfoScale provides high availability for your applications, and it integrates with AWS Outposts to enable you to easily host your mission-critical workloads in a hybrid-cloud environment with minimal complexity.
InfoScale is a software-defined optimization solution for mission-critical applications that minimizes the risk of application downtime and data loss to help keep your mission-critical applications up and running all the time. InfoScale also gives you the flexibility to run your applications on nearly any physical, virtual, or cloud platform.
InfoScale integrates seamlessly with AWS Outposts, which allows you to easily host your mission-critical workloads using a hybrid-cloud architecture with the familiar user experience and functionality you get with AWS. InfoScale provides:
AWS Outposts provide an on-premises platform as a service (PaaS) with integrated compute (EC2), networking, and storage. InfoScale uses the AWS Outpost infrastructure and services and presents them as a cluster of pooled resources like what you see in Figure 2. This means you can run your applications in an active/passive mode or an active/active mode – providing maximum application availability.
InfoScale uses AWS EBS storage and creates a shared pool. If your applications need more compute resources, you can add compute resources dynamically to the cluster. If your applications need more storage, then storage resources can be dynamically added to the cluster. InfoScale enables your compute and storage resources to scale independently, which optimizes resource utilization and helps reduce your cloud infrastructure costs. It also gives you the flexibility to use only the infrastructure you need to maximize your application performance and uptime.
InfoScale has agents explicitly written to work with AWS that enable HA and DR capabilities for your applications:
Now that we know more about how InfoScale works with Outposts let’s look at how you can use InfoScale to implement a highly available MySQL database in an Outpost. In this example, we’ll look at a single instance MySQL database that’s made highly available across two EC2 instances within an Availability Zone. Here’s the process for setting it up:
Now, you have a highly available MySQL database running on InfoScale in an Outpost! Do you need an active/active configuration? No problem – this can be done using a similar process with InfoScale’s FSS feature. More information on FSS can be found in this link. You can also add geographical redundancy with InfoScale’s Global Cluster Option and Veritas Volume Replicator to manage failover and data replication between Availability Zones and Regions.
In conjunction with InfoScale's industry-leading data management and availability technology, AWS Outposts provides a strong foundation to run your mission-critical applications in a hybrid-cloud setup while meeting your high availability and performance requirements. InfoScale’s software-defined storage management and high-availability agents for AWS are custom designed to provide maximum uptime and flexibility for applications running in AWS Outposts, making it the ideal foundation for running your mission-critical applications in AWS with maximum uptime and performance.
