Managing and automating tasks in Qumulo Multi-Cluster-Environments can prove complex, but Yuzuy Virtual Management Appliance streamlines the process, providing administrators with a user-friendly web-based management interface.
Failover and Failback Automation
Switching between “Primary” and “Secondary” roles in two clusters, directing client access to the secondary cluster, involves a delicate, multi-stage workflow. This process demands robustness, clear documentation, and regular testing. Yuzuy excels in perfecting this process, making it accessible and manageable for all administrators.
Using Yuzuy, you can enhance your IT infrastructure’s resilience and conquer organizational challenges. It delivers a reliable solution for these critical processes, enabling regular testing and ensuring that planned and unplanned failovers function smoothly, even in turbulent situations.
Yuzuy supports SMB, NFS, and SMB via DFS, offering complete failover or failback with just a single click or API call.
Qumulo’s Continuous Replication involves directory-based replication, requiring the creation of corresponding shares, exports, quotas, and permissions on the replication site for client access. Yuzuy Synchronization automatically syncs NFS-Exports, SMB-Shares, and quotas between two clusters, ensuring continuous and nearly real-time synchronization. Yuzuy identifies components meant for replication, cataloging changes that occur on the secondary system and replicating them to the primary cluster in Failover mode.
Simplicity is Complexity Resolved
Resilience in IT refers to the ability of your systems to withstand disruptions, recover quickly, and continue operating smoothly. Whether it’s defending against cyberattacks or ensuring your organization can bounce back from unexpected challenges, resilience is paramount.
“Simplicity is Complexity Resolved” means that by simplifying your IT infrastructure and processes, you reduce the chances of errors occurring during high-stress situations. It’s not just about making things easier; it’s about ensuring your systems and processes are structured to withstand adversity.
Characteristics of Yuzuy
Yuzuy is delivered as a virtual appliance, running in your data center or the cloud. Installation and configuration take just minutes, and it offers in-place upgrades via the user interface. Yuzuy supports cross-replicating clusters and can integrate seamlessly with your monitoring or ITMS through REST-API.
For effective operation, Yuzuy necessitates source and target clusters running Qumulo Core 2.12.0 or higher, a hypervisor capable of importing and executing OVA-Images (tested with vSphere / ESXi 6.5 and above), and a VM meeting specific requirements: 4 CPU cores, 8 GB RAM, 100 GB HDD Storage, and admin privileges for all Qumulo Clusters involved.
Licensing & Support
Yuzuy comes as an annual software subscription licensed by the number of Qumulo-licensed Terabytes across all clusters. This subscription includes support and future functionalities for eligible customers. Organizations using Qumulo and Yuzuy can access both through their company-specific Slack channel unless otherwise preferred.
In an era where administrators must manage a multitude of systems, the goal is to simplify complexity in every possible place. Yuzuy’s automation platform, experienced in every step of critical processes, has performed them reliably thousands of times. The Yuzuy Virtual Appliance runs in your data center or in the cloud and is rolled out and configured in minutes.
From that moment on, the “failover failback” process can be reliably executed by the system and the object synchronization runs continuously. The web interface is self-explanatory and easily accessible for every admin. During failover and failback, admins receive status messages and each automation step is backed up by technical checks.
Yuzuy is exclusively designed for multi-cluster orchestration and automation for Qumulo.
