It takes two to tango! It is of no use having data available on alternate/takeover systems if the applications required to provide the business services are not also available when needed. Shadowbase data replication solutions provide all the capabilities necessary to keep databases replicated and synchronized across multiple systems, whether it be a uni-directional (active/passive), bi-directional (sizzling-hot-takeover, active/active), heterogeneous, or homogeneous environment. The introduction of Pathway domains across nodes for HP NonStop servers helps to ensure the applications remain available too, even when catastrophic failures take out a system, an entire data center, or a geographic region. By configuring applications within a Pathway domain across multiple HP NonStop nodes, in the event of planned or unplanned outages, user requests are automatically routed to the remaining systems, thereby preserving application availability. In addition, application scalability is increased by automatic workload distribution across those systems. Since Shadowbase replication technology is making sure the data remains available, the combination of Shadowbase software and Pathway domains provides a firm basis to achieve increased levels of availability for your business services. In short, Pathway domains and Shadowbase data replication solutions are perfect together!
