HA solution for Heavy Forwarders

Loves-to-Learn Everything

I was wondering about a possible BCP for heavy forwarders. Currently we have 2 heavy forwarders in a single datacenter. 


For a DR solution, can we replicate the virtual machines to an offsite location, or is there additional configuration requirements.

If you want to use HFs, then just install those enough on both data centers. Then it’s not an issue if some of those are down. Use DS or other tools to keep their configurations in sync.
