Configuring Your OpenVMS Cluster to Survive a Disaster
- Topic Area:
- Track: Open VMS
- Topic: Disaster Recovery
- Type: Weekend Seminar
09:00 AM Duration:

- New technology allows high performance OpenVMS Cluster nodes to be separated by hundreds of kilometers. It is now possible to use this distance to place OpenVMS Cluster nodes, "out of harm's way." VMS Volume Shadowing allows an up to date copy of critical data to also be in a "safe" place.
If such an OpenVMS Cluster system is properly configured and implemented, the probability for an application to bounce back from a major disaster is significantly increased.
This seminar covers the issues involved in designing and implementing a disaster resilient configuration. Because there is more to surviving a disaster than just technology, this seminar also covers some of the business and people related issues in disaster recovery and contingency planning.
Topics covered include:
~ What Constitutes a Disaster?
~ Creating a Disaster Recovery and Contingency Plan
~ Technology issues
~~ Hardware configuration
~~ Volume Shadowing
~~ Votes and Quorum
~~ Target Recovery Time
~~ Disaster Survival Plan
~~ Application Design
~ Alternatives to the VMScluster solution
- List the major OpenVMS Cluster features that enable disaster recovery.
- List alternative disaster tolerant solutions involving OpenVMS Clusters.
- List the steps necessary to implement a disaster tolerant configuration.
- Prerequisites for attendees:
- A working knowledge of OpenVMS
- Required Skill Level:
Assumes general knowledge of topic, familiarity w/basic terms & procedures
