The SIOS Protection Suite for Linux Multi-Site Cluster is a separately licensed product that uses a LifeKeeper shared storage configuration between two or more servers with the additional ability to replicate the shared disk(s) to one or more target servers using SIOS DataKeeper.
SIOS Protection Suite for Linux Multi-Site Cluster can be built upon a Wide Area Network that is configured to provide failover of IP addresses across multiple network segments that are on different subnets. This configuration involves either a virtual network (Virtual LAN (VLAN)) or Virtual Private Network (VPN).
Following is an image of the SIOS LifeKeeper GUI after the SIOS Protection Suite for Linux Multi-Site Cluster product has been configured. Although the hierarchies appear unbalanced, they are configured properly and will function correctly. If you are an existing SIOS DataKeeper customer and are familiar with the SIOS LifeKeeper graphical user interface, the SIOS Protection Suite Multi-Site Cluster resource hierarchy display in the LifeKeeper GUI will appear differently from previous releases of SIOS DataKeeper.
