Configure an Active-Active, Active-Passive or a Combination:
- Active-Passive – Use a recovery site for non-production applications. This requires unidirectional data replication from the primary site to the recovery site. The recovery site is used for non-production workloads such as business intelligence and reporting.
- Active-Active – Use two sites for production applications with bidirectional data replication from the primary to the secondary site. Due to the latency requirements for synchronous replication, sites are usually within 40 miles of each other. However, low latency optical interconnection can extend this distance if within five milliseconds.
- Active-Active-Passive – Use the first and second site for production applications while the recovery site is used for non-production applications and workloads.
