Long distance application failover between data centers.
I am working a project where there is a requirement to have a primary server and a secondary for application failover. The requirements dictate that the servers must be geographically separate at separate data centers but yet on the same IP subnet so that heartbeat messages are not natively routed. What protocol can I use to bridge the subnet over an IP routed network? GRE? L2TP?
Re: Long distance application failover between data centers.
GRE will not work as according to the last information I have you cannot bridge over a GRE tunnel. We had one such application with similar requirements and we ended up using L2TPv3 that allows transparent LAN extension. We have not had any issues with it and if you are only going to use it for heartbeats you should not run into any performance issues. L2TPv3 does tend to drive the CPU utilization high in case you have a lot of data traversing the tunnel.
The unmanaged mode is also known as Network only switching, which is introduced in Brazos release. It adds the flexibility for customer to use only network automation for service appliance.

This is expected behavior because HyperFlex redirects ESXi Shell output to SoL...
