VMware: Fault Tolerance

Als VMware Beta tester mag ik vanwege de NDA helaas nog niets posten m.b.t. de nieuwe ontwikkelingen binnen de volgende versie van Virtual Infrastructure. Gelukkig heeft VMware zelf al wat prijs gegeven door een video demo van VMware Fault Tolerance te publiceren.

VMware Fault Tolerance is leading edge technology that provides continuous availability for applications in the event of server failures,  by creating a live shadow instance of a virtual machine that is in virtual lockstep with the primary instance. By allowing instantaneous failover between the two instances in the event of hardware failure, VMware Fault Tolerance eliminates even the smallest of data loss or disruption.

Op VMworld Europe zal ook een breakout sessie zijn m.b.t. VMware Fault Tolerance;

TA24 – Fault Tolerance Performance Preview

VMware Fault Tolerance provides continuous availability for your virtual machines with zero downtime, zero data loss and zero state loss, without the need for any traditional hardware or software clustering solutions. This session will provide insights into the architecture and performance implications of this technology with performance data for a number of real-life workloads.
