Jazz Server Failover

Gary Mullen-Schultz (28725536) | asked Aug 04 '08, 4:29 p.m.
Is it possible to set up transparent server failover when using WAS and DB2 or Oracle? By failover I mean maintaining state (authentication, session data, etc.) on a "backup" server and automatically transferring to that backup if the primary fails?

If this is supported, is this all handled by WAS? If not, are there plans to support it (this question is straight from a customer evaluating RTC).

Thanks, Gary

Currently we do this only at the db level. Since the server is mostly stateless except for caches and authentication, if there is a failure you can restart from where you were by starting up the server on a clone of the database.

Once we become cluster-enabled we should have real server failover support as you describe.
