DB2 for Linux, UNIX, and Windows has been recognized for providing very resilient data management to achieve high data integrity, reliability, consistency, and availability. It has the following options to provide high availability for production systems.
- DB2 high availability and disaster recovery (HADR), is a data replication feature that provides a high availability solution for both partial and complete site failures. HADR protects against data loss by replicating data changes from a source database (primary), to a target database (standby). HADR is available in all editions of DB2 10, and supports up to three standby nodes for high availability and disaster recovery.
- DB2 pureScale, an optional feature, offers a shared-disk clustering technology that helps provide continuous availability and scalability.
- DB2 MSCS is another option for users who require a high availability solution in a windows environment.
This article concentrates on the last option that can be used for training, development, or testing scenarios running VMware images on a single physical Microsoft Windows machine. The following figure shows the typical topology of DB2 Enterprise Server Edition (ESE) and MSCS.Download the full report for more on s
