No-Click Data Center Site Failovers Powered by Metro Availability Witness
Nutanix Metro Availability is a continuous availability solution which enables synchronous replication and stretched clustering capabilities for Nutanix environments. Metro Availability was first released with AOS 4.1 in early 2015. With Metro Availability, Nutanix was the first hyper-converged platform to provide a native continuous availability solution. While this was a strong achievement in the industry, it was a first step in delivering the intended functionality: a simple solution providing seamless migration, zero RPO and near zero RTO for unplanned events across datacenters.
Eighteen Months of Innovation for Metro Availability
Over the past year and a half there have been several improvements to Metro Availability. Some of those features included:
- Synchronous replication support for both ESXi and Hyper-V environments, in the 4.1.3 release.
- Asynchronous replication interoperability, including three site support, introduced with the 4.1.4 release.
- The capability to fully transition workloads between sites with zero downtime during planned events, available with the 4.6 release.
