High Availability Support options besides Fail-Over Clustering for Identity Manager
Does Identity Manager support using DNS Alias and SAN Replication as an approach for High Availabilty?
A combination of SAN replication for the database files and connecting to the SQL Server using a DNS alias is supported by Identity Manager.
Connecting to Microsoft SQL Server using a DNS alias is transparent to Identity Manager and part of the Microsoft SQL Server client connectivity in ADO.NET.
Using SAN replication for database files is transparent to Identity Manager as well as this is just part of the underlying infrastructure.
Disclaimer: Depending on the technology (network-based vs hardware-based) or type (synchronous vs asynchronous) of SAN replication there might be none or some influence on the performance for write operations affecting the overall performance of Identity Manager.
