Customer Challenge

Being a mission critical application, HA on the db was required. To enable HA on the database was their biggest challenge. AspireNXT addressed the challenge.

Partner Solution

  • AspireNXT proposed using Veritas Infoscale, a Software defined High Availability Solution that caters to Enterprises that require HA on their Workloads.
  • Veritas Infoscale works by monitoring the various services that govern the workload(Oracle db services) and the various network services and health checks.
  • Veritas Infoscale was configured to replicate the EBS Volumes that host the database from the primary instance to the secondary instance.
  • A RPO of 10 ms and RTO of 10 minutes were defined as per organizational policies.
  • The subsecond RPO was made possible by leveraging AWS’ Internal network.
