ActiveCluster Introduction & Demonstration


Pure Storage ActiveCluster is a fully symmetric active/active bidirectional replication solution that provides synchronous replication for RPO zero and automatic transparent failover for RTO zero. ActiveCluster spans multiple sites enabling clustered arrays and clustered hosts to be used to deploy flexible active/active data center configurations.

  • Synchronous Replication: Writes are synchronized between arrays and protected in non-volatile RAM (NVRAM) on both of the arrays before being acknowledged to the host.
  • Symmetric Active/Active: Read and write to the same volumes at either side of the mirror, with optional host-to-array site awareness.
  • Transparent Failover: Automatic Non-disruptive failover between synchronously replicating arrays and sites with automatic resynchronization and recovery.
  • No Bolt-ons & No Licenses: No additional hardware required, no software licenses required, upgrade the Purity Operating Environment and go active/active.
  • Integrated Pure1 Cloud Mediator: Automatically configured passive mediator that allows transparent failover and prevents split-brain, without the need to deploy and manage another component.

Larry Touchette, Director, Technical Product Management at Pure Storage, will give a demonstration of Purity ActiveCluster in action. He will review the Purity 5.0 UI, while showing the entire process of getting ActiveCluster configured and running within an existing environment.
