Open-E DSS V6 Asynchronous Data replication Within a System

  1. 1. Step-by-Step Guide to Asynchronous Data (File) Replication (File Based) within a System Supported by Open-E ® DSS V6Software Version: DSS ver. 6.00 up85Presentation updated: September 2011
  2. 2. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Replication Source/Destination Data Transfer Volume Type Mode Asynchronous Synchronous iSCSI Block based File based w/ System WAN NAS LAN Block-IO FC File-IOAsynchronous Data (File) Replication within a system  ASYNCHRONOUS DATA (FILE) REPLICATION within a System enables asynchronous file and folder copy from one LUN or Volume Group to another on the same system. • With asynchronous replication a point-in-time snapshot copy of data on the source is made and copied to the target storage device. www.open-e.com 2
  3. 3. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System REPLICATION BETWEEN TWO RAID ARRAYS WITHIN ONE SYSTEM  Recommended Resources • Key Hardware  x86 compatible  RAID Controller 1  RAID Controller 2 (optional, single RAID controller can manage 2 RAID arrays as well)  HDD„s  Network Interface Cards • Software  Open-E DSS V6  Benefits • Data redundancy over RAID Array • Local data availability • Low cost solution  Disadvantages • In case of complete system failure, data will be lost or inaccessible www.open-e.com 3
  4. 4. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System • Data is written and read from Array 1 • Data is periodically replicated to Array 2 Data (file) Replication RAID Array 1 RAID Array 2 Primary Secondary Write Data Read Data www.open-e.com 4
  5. 5. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System • In case of raid array error or disk drive error on the Raid Array 1, the server will send an e-mail notification to the administrator and/or users • The administrator then switches from Array 1 to Array 2 X X RAID Array 1 RAID Array 2 Primary Secondary X www.open-e.com 5
  6. 6. Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System • After switching, replicated data is available on Array 2 X X RAID Array 1 RAID Array 2 Primary Secondary X Write Data Read Data www.open-e.com 6
  7. 7. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System TO SET UP DATA (FILE) REPLICATION, PERFORM THE FOLLOWING STEPS: 1. Configure Hardware 2. Configure the destination volume 3. Configure the source volume 4. Configure Schedule replication 5. Check the status of Data (File) Replication www.open-e.com 7
  8. 8. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System 1. Configure Hardware Hardware Requirements To run the Data (File) Replication on Open-E DSS V6, a minimum of two RAID arrays are required on one system. Logical volumes working on RAID Array 1 must have snapshots created and enabled. An example configuration is shown below: Data Server (DSS) IP Address:192.168.0.220 Raid Array 1 Raid Array 2 Primary Secondary Volume Groups (vg00) Volume Groups (vg01) Snapshot (snap0000) NAS volume (lv01000) NAS volume (lv0000) Shares: Data Shares: Copy of Data Data (File) Replication www.open-e.com 8
  9. 9. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 2. Configure the destination volume Raid Array 2 IP Address:192.168.0.220Under the “CONFIGURATION”menu, select “volumemanager” and “Vol. Groups”Volume Groups (vg01)Add the selected physical units(Unit S003) to create a newvolume group (in this case,vg01) and click apply button. www.open-e.com 9
  10. 10. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 2. Configure the destination volume Raid Array 2 IP Address:192.168.0.220 Volume Groups (vg01) NAS volume (lv0100)Select the appropriate volumegroup (vg01) from the list onthe left and create a new NASvolume of the required size.This logical volume lv0100 willbe the destination of thereplication process.After assigning an appropriateamount of space for the NASvolume, click the apply button www.open-e.com 10
  11. 11. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 2. Configure the destination volume Raid Array 2 IP Address:192.168.0.220Under the “CONFIGURATION”menu, select “NAS settings”Data (File) ReplicationIn the Data (file) replicationagent function, check theEnable data (file) replicationagent box, and click the applybutton www.open-e.com 11
  12. 12. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 2. Configure the destination volume Raid Array 2 IP Address:192.168.0.220Under the “CONFIGURATION”menu, select “NAS resources”and “Shares”. Shares: Copy of DataA tree listing of NAS sharedvolumes (Shares) will appearon the left side of the DSSconsole. In the example, ashared volume namedCopy of Data on lv0100 hasbeen created. www.open-e.com 12
  13. 13. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 2. Configure the destination volume Raid Array 2 IP Address:192.168.0.220 After creating the new shared volume, click on the share name, check the box Use data (file) replication within Data (file) replication agent settings function and click on the apply button. Data (File) ReplicationNOTE:It is strongly recommended protecting thereplication protocol with a user name andpassword, along with a list of allowed IPaddress. This will prevent other Data (File)Replication tasks from accessing this share.The configuration of the destination volume is now complete. www.open-e.com 13
  14. 14. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 3. Configure the source volume Raid Array 1 IP Address:192.168.0.220Under the “CONFIGURATION”tab, select “volume manager”.. Volume Groups (vg00)Add the selected physical units(Unit MD0) to create a newvolume group (in this case,vg00) and click apply button. www.open-e.com 14
  15. 15. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 3. Configure the source volume Raid Array 1 IP Address:192.168.0.220 Volume Groups (vg00) NAS volume (lv0000)Select the appropriate volumegroup (vg00) from the list onthe left and create a new NASvolume of the required size.This logical volume will be thesource of the replicationprocess.After assigning an appropriateamount of space for the NASvolume, click the apply button www.open-e.com 15
  16. 16. Setting up Asynchronous Data (File) Replication within a System Data Server (DSS) 3. Configure the source volume Raid Array 1 IP Address:192.168.0.220To run the replication process,you must first define a newsnapshot to be taken of thevolume to be replicated.Snapshot size should be largeenough to accommodate thechanges you anticipate, 10% to15% of the logical volume issometimes recommend. Next,you select “Assign to volumelv0000”. SnapshotAfter assigning an appropriateamount of space for the newsnapshot, click the applybutton. www.open-e.com 16
