Large organizations that provide 24×7 services to its customers rely heavily on the redundancy of systems that support their businesses. To ascertain business continuity, companies establish server farms, automatically replicate storage and database systems, and built disaster recovery sites. The more critical the data and the services being managed are, the more important and sensitive the type of management should be.
Having a clone or a back-up system adds complexity to the network infrastructure. From an administration’s perspective, back-ups are included in the management of the whole system that complicate monitoring and managing practices.
Should the back-up takeover be automated in cases when the main system drops?
Who will update the storage and database of the main system once it’s back online?
FatPipe’s Site Load Balancing is capable of distributing traffic between two sites, utilizing all lines available at each site including bandwidth and other resources. This technology is a combination of Internet load balancing and FatPipe’s patented SmartDNS technology to ensure a user’s operations are always active and available.
With FatPipe’s Site Load Balancing, user are still able to provide high levels of service to their customers despite the event of system failure or outage.
Site Load Balancing requires two or more sites to be configured identically. Any change made to one site will be propagated to all other sites. FatPipe’s technology can detect and determine the status of each site dynamically. Each line in every location is given a priority status as primary or back-up. Only IP addresses dubbed as primary lines will be handed out for DNS replies. If all primary lines are down, then IP addresses tagged as backup lines will be handed out for DNS replies. The connections or lines in every site can be monitored and managed through FatPipe’s system.
FatPipe’s Site Load Balancing can help optimize your IT network’s resources through:
TRAFFIC PRIORITIZATION – up to ten (10) levels allowing granular control over applications and associated bandwidth. This means that applications can be classified under any of the ten levels of priorities. The remaining traffic will be considered secondary and treated with “best effort.” This can be applied to real-time voice and video traffic and also for critical data transmission. VPN Traffic can also be prioritized over Internet Traffic to improve inter-office communications.
BANDWIDTH ALLOCATION – gives priority to business applications and minimizes recreational traffic, helping to ensure critical data transmission and services delivery that help increase employee productivity.
NETWORK LINK MANAGEMENT – provides policies for every application and every user in order to prevent any one application or user to congest a link.
SLA MANAGEMENT – provides latency and bandwidth utilization reports is a way to monitor the use of connections provided by telco providers and ISPs, ensuring your company is enjoying the proper level and quality of services you paid for.
SERVER LOAD BALANCING – is a solution that maximizes the use of Active/Passive servers by making them both Active for access and use.
