High Availability

High Availability

Many facilities require thousands of critical alarms to be monitored on a daily basis. Therefore, it is imperative that data from all critical alarms or events is logged and delivered continuously, enabling staff to handle them no matter what hardware failure or any other issues may occur. Connexall’s HA solution provides automatic CNS failover and real-time database synchronization to reduce downtime caused by hardware failure or server maintenance resulting in minimal disruption to day-to-day business processes. The HA Solution includes a 2-Node Active/Passive Cluster with real-time data synchronization and auto failover capability. The primary (active) Notification Server provides the normal day-to-day activity and operation of the Connexall System. The secondary (passive) Notification Server is constantly updated in real-time with all data and information created in the active Notification Server. In the event of a failure of the primary Notification Server, the system will automatically switch over to the secondary (passive) Notification Server maintaining full operation with minimal interruption in the system. All input/output clients connecting to the active system will detect the failure and switch over to the passive system. The High Availability Solution is only available in the Enterprise Edition and is purchased separately. As the Connexall High Availability Solution is a critical, customizable business application and is a vital component to the Connexall System, only certified GlobeStar Systems’ Engineers are permitted to provide the HA implementation.
