MSA2012fc (2x) active/active capability

Hi there,

 

Hope everybody's going well.

 

I have 2x MSA2012fc and I want to use them as active/active failover, is it possible? I mean both MSA has exactely the same data at the same time.

 

Kind regards.

ASFAK only G3 and G4 can do replication, G1 and G2 not. YOur array is G1, so you need an external solution to mirror the data between the arrays.


Hope this helps!
