Synchronous Replication Feature platform support and other FAQs

Applies To




All VMstore

4.3 and above


Synchronous Replication (SR) with transparent failover enables two storage systems to maintain
identical, mirrored copies of data. One system functions as primary, and receives updates from clients.
Updates are replicated immediately to the other system (the secondary) prior to being acknowledged to
clients. In the event of a failover, both storage systems contain all acknowledged updates. Transparent
failover enables the systems to failover from one system to another with no data loss (RPO-0) and
without any disruption to service for your mission critical applications. The solution also does not require
host client reconfiguration. Configuration is performed in Tintri Global Center (TGC).
