Our Server has just crashed two days ago.
This situation shows the limit of our environment.
We would like to build a new environment where server A is active (up) and server B is asleep (down all the time).
When server A crash. I turn on server B.
This process puts a lot of questions in mind:
What about the datastorage ? can I switch from server A to B transparently?
What about licence ? can I switch from server A to B without having problem ?
As Confluence is not a critical application, we dont wont to have an active cluster configuration, despite it would only be a high availability solution...
I would appreciate for help about this situation.
I have just done this for Confluence and JIRA - but of cause with a running standby server, simply with rsync for files in /pack/confluence-data and /pack/confluence - and mysqlsump for the database.
Then a simple script on the standby server to:
1. Drop and create new database
2. Import mysqldump file
3. Start Tomcat on the server
The frequency of the rsync and mysqldump desides how close to real-time data You have. A master-slave MySQL solution is also possible.
Other posibilities could be have Veeam doing it (as You server is virtual I suppose)
