Clustering with Virtual Machines

The following describes considerations for Redcell Synergy run on VMware virtual machines. Installation of the RC 7 Synergy on virtualized platform is support for both standalone and distributed deployments.

This is a high level reference that omits numerous considerations beyond its scope. Evaluate those omitted considerations to correctly plan a virtualization project, particularly for Redcell Synergy managing a larger network. Power, performance, expandability, backup, load, connectivity, recovery time objectives (RTO), and so on are all worth evaluating and defining. In short, this overview is not a fully operational virtualization configuration, it’s just an example. Refer to the deployment scenarios described in Clustering for more information. The following examples focus on a VMware implementation. Each site requires access to an appropriate database.
