Subject RE: DR in CloudStack ?

Octavian,

Your Compute Offering needs to be flagged as HA Enabled, this will then ensure that the VM
will move to a new Host in the event of a Host failure.  (FYI if you put a Host into Maintenance
Mode, all VMs are migrated, regardless of their HA status)

To move VMs between Clusters, you need to move the storage first, so this is not handled automatically.

However the latest version (4.2) now supports Zone Wide Primary Storage for KVM and VMware
so moving VMs between Clusters is possible if you are using this type of storage configuration.

For XenServer you can use XenStorage Motion to live migrate VMs across Clusters, but I believe
this is initiated by Root Admins, and not after a HA event.

Regards

Geoff Higginbottom

Hi Geoff,

Thanks, are there any specific features or options in regards to pure DR, rather than HA?
For instance, moving VMs between clusters, pods or zones?

Octavian
