The project requirements contained that clients wanted to protect their complete environments against system failures. This included a critical database and a critical file system (the file system is interacting with the database and resides on the same server). A number of pre-defined system administrators should be enabled to initiate the switch-over in case of a problem.
All project requirements could be addressed with ease, solved and implemented with BusinessShadow®, just one solution for the different aspects:
- BusinessShadow® component DBShadow® takes care of the database
- BusinessShadow® component FSShadow® takes care of the file systems
- BusinessShadow® component SwitchApplication takes care of the switch-over process
The project implementation started with a project kick-off meeting to detail the interdependencies within the complex application environment and possible implementation details. The next step was the actual implementation of the software followed by an in-depth knowledge transfer about how to handle the implementation. The project was rounded off by an emergency switch-over test and an individual user manual which covers potential crash and switch-over scenarios.
