    VmWare Fault tolerance set up

    RanjithKoolath Lurker

      Hi Team,

       

      I have a quick question regarding Fault tolerance set up in vmware .

       

      Scenario:

           I have an environment with 22 servers and need to set up FT for it.

       

      Requirement:

           This application requires same IPs to be retained on both DCs \ clusters in vmware.

       

      Plan to Implement:

           1. Set up same same infrastructure in both clusters (this includes IPs, cpu, ram,storage etc.exactly same in both cluster). Lets call the clusters as DC-1 & DC-2. Then, shutdown the DC-2 to avoid           IP conflict.

           2. Set up active-passive fail-over

           3. DC-1 will always be up and syncing the data between DC-2 (which will be in shutdown mode) all the time

           4. If there is a host failure in DC-1, FT will bring up the passive cluster and vms will serve the data from there

       

      Question:

           Will the above scenario work?

           Any suggestions to simplify or improve this design?

           Any documentation that will guide me here?

       

      Thanks alot in advance!.
