Disaster recovery deployment architecture (SAP SQL Anywhere)

The architecture of the disaster recovery system varies according to the database you use. If you are using Oracle, see Disaster recovery deployment architecture (Oracle).

Disaster recovery system architecture for TrueSight Infrastructure Management

The disaster recovery system consists of two TrueSight Infrastructure Management Servers, a primary server and a recovery server. During a disaster, the DNS alias name resolves to the recovery TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server so that data and service availability are continued.

Components of TrueSight Infrastructure Management disaster recovery system

ComponentDescription

Primary and recovery BTrueSight Infrastructure Management Servers

The recovery BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server is the backup server for the primary BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server and must be up when the primary BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server fails. Both the servers must have the following configuration with Infrastructure Management Performance Management installed:

  • Identical operating system version
  • Identical hardware configuration
  • Located in the same domain
  • Configured logical fully qualified domain names
  • Identical time zone, location, and language settings

Storage replication solution

A storage replication solution automatically backs up the database and configuration files at frequent intervals even when the primary BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server is up and running.

The backed-up files are critical to bring up the recovery BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server at the time of a disaster.

If you do not have a storage replication solution, you can also manually back up these files. The storage replication solution helps reduce system down time when compared to the manual backup process.

Note

Check with your IT administrator for the appropriate storage replication solution.

DNS server

The DNS server resolves to the recovery BMC TrueSight Infrastructure Management Server at the time of a disaster so that the monitoring of the devices and data collection continue to function normally.
