Product Sheet: Assure MIMIX Global

Raise your HA/DR protection to the max with Assure MIMIX Global

Assure MIMIX Global, when added to Assure MIMIX HA environments of three or more servers, delivers the ultimate in protection from downtime and data loss and maximum data access without increased complexity.

Assure MIMIX Global seamlessly incorporates multiple local or remote HA/DR servers into an Assure MIMIX HA environment for fast local failovers, geographically distant protection from regional disasters, and defense against unplanned outages during planned maintenance. Assure MIMIX Global also maximizes data access by enabling the integration of any number of data distribution servers for read-only use in queries, reports and data warehousing or read-write use by other processes or applications.

Assure MIMIX Global hides the complexity of managing multiple HA, DR and data distribution servers through integration with the browser-based, graphical interface for Assure MIMIX HA.
As a result you can switch a multi-server Assure MIMIX HA environment at the push of a button, just as easily as you would switch two servers.

How It Works

Assure MIMIX HA requires that each source and target replication pair have at least one node defined as the management node. This node operates as the control point for the installation. When Assure MIMIX Global is added to an Assure MIMIX HA environment, every server can be a management node for the entire HA/DR environment, regardless of the number of nodes. This provides maximum flexibility for managing a multiple-node environment, enables all possible switch scenarios, and allows you to switch from a production server to a local HA server or to one or more local or remote DR servers with ease. Virtual switches can also be performed to any HA or DR server to test your switch readiness without impacting the production server.
