LINBIT® recently posted a free AMI in the AWS Marketplace based on the latest Ubuntu LTS release and preconfigured with LINBIT’s Ubuntu Personal Package Archive (PPA) and with LINBIT’s packages preinstalled.
You will receive the latest Ubuntu LTS with the following LINBIT software preinstalled:
- DRBD® kernel module for block device replication
- LINSTOR® for deploying DRBD devices
- DRBD Reactor for managing cluster resources and HA
DRBD enables AWS users to replicate block storage (EBS volumes) across Availability Zones (AZ). This gives you peace of mind that a replica of your volume resides in not just one, but many AWS data centers. With an exact replica of your volume in another AZ, you have the peace of mind that you can access your data even if one AZ is unavailable, without having to rely on migrating EBS volumes during an AZ outage may not be possible.
