IBM® HyperSwap® is the high availability (HA) solution that provides continuous data availability in case of hardware failure, power failure, connectivity failure, or disasters. The HyperSwap capability is available for IBM FlashSystem® A9000 and IBM FlashSystem A9000R, starting with software version 12.2.1. Version 12.3 introduces a function that combines HyperSwap and Asynchronous replication, which creates a solution that entails HA and Disaster Recovery (DR). One side of the HyperSwap pair has an active async link to the third system, and the other side has a standby link. Known as Multi-site HA/DR, this configuration provides HyperSwap active-active HA while keeping data mirrored to a third copy to ensure two levels of business continuity. This IBM RedpaperTM publication gives a broad understanding of the architecture, design, and implementation of HyperSwap and Multi-site HA/DR solution. It also discusses and illustrates various use cases pertaining to their use and functionality. This paper is intended for those users who want to deploy solutions that take advantage of HyperSwap and Multi-site HA/DR for FlashSystem A9000 and A9000R.

The emergence of the cloud and modern, fast corporate networks demands that you perform judicious balancing of computational loads. Practical Load Balancing presents an entire analytical framework to increase performance not just of one machine, but of your entire infrastructure. Practical Load Balancing starts by introducing key concepts and the tools you'll need to tackle your load-balancing issues. You'll travel through the IP layers and learn how they can create increased network traffic for you. You'll see how to account for persistence and state, and how you can judge the performance of scheduling algorithms. You'll then learn how to avoid performance degradation and any risk of the sudden disappearance of a service on a server. If you're concerned with running your load balancer for an entire network, you'll find out how to set up your network topography, and condense each topographical variety into recipes that will serve you in different situations. You'll also learn about individual servers, and load balancers that can perform cookie insertion or improve your SSL throughput. You'll also explore load balancing in the modern context of the cloud. While load balancers need to be configured for high availability once the conditions on the network have been created, modern load balancing has found its way into the cloud, where good balancing is vital for the very functioning of the cloud, and where IPv6 is becoming ever more important. You can read Practical Load Balancing from end to end or out of sequence, and indeed, if there are individual topics that interest you, you can pick up this book and work through it once you have read the first three chapters. What you’ll learn Judge network load balancing algorithms and when to use them Plan your network for optimal load balancing performance Configure single servers to take advantage of modern load balancing software Learning to use load balancing software like HAproxy, STunnel etc. Become familiar with implications of IPv6 and the cloud Improve SSL throughput and seamless application cookie insertion Who this book is for Network engineers, developers and IT managers. Table of Contents Part I: Getting Started 1. Introduction 2. How websites work: what makes them slow 3. Content Caching: keeping the load light 4. DNS based load balancing 5.
