This is the third post in our series investigating how Rook-Ceph and RBD Mirroring can be best utilized to handle Disaster Recovery scenarios. The first post in the series, “Managing application and data portability at scale with Rook-Ceph,” laid some foundational groundwork for how Rook-Ceph and RBD mirroring can enable application portability. Then in our second post, “Managing Disaster Recovery with GitOps and Ceph RBD Mirroring,” we talked about some key features of Rook-Ceph RBD mirroring and presented a solution to help manage and automate failover using a GitOps model.
In this post we explore some additional tools and concepts to help with the synchronization of application consistency and state across multiple clusters, reducing the manual steps and providing an automated approach for recoverability and maintainability of the application on failover.
