LINBIT’s DRBD ships with integration to VCS

LINBIT featured image

The LINBIT DRBD software has been updated with an integration for Veritas Infoscale Availability (VIA). VIA, formerly known as Veritas Cluster Server (VCS), is a proprietary cluster manager for building highly available clusters on Linux. Examples of application cluster capabilities are Network File Sharing databases or e-commerce websites. VCS solves the same problem as the Pacemaker Open Source projects.  

Yet, in contrast to Pacemaker, VCS has a long history on the Unix Platform. VCS came to Linux as Linux began to surpass legacy Unix platforms. In addition to its longevity, VCS has a strong and clean user experience. For example, VCS is ahead of the Pacemaker software when it comes to clarity of log files. Notably, the Veritas Cluster Server has slightly fewer features than Pacemaker. (With great power comes complexity!)

The gear runs even smoother. DRBD has an integration for VCS.

VCS integration for DRBD

Since January 2018, DRBD has been shipping with an integration to VCS. Users are now able to use VCS instead of Pacemaker and even control DRBD via VCS. It consists of two agents: DRBDConfigure and DRBDPrimary that enable drbd-8.4 and drbd-9.0 for VCS.
