[rabbitmq-discuss] Disaster Recovery

Hi Jerry,

In terms of acceptable data loss, for our db's we accept 15 minutes worth of data loss, the same level of tolerance would be acceptable for rabbitmq.

The assumption is that the failover will not be automatic but that it will have to be manually flipped to the DR site and that back ground processes would have to be started up manually.

Hi, Ruben:

We have users that make use of Rabbit/AMQP messaging as part of cross-site DR scenarios, but one has to be thoughtful about what one is trying to do.

*What* is it that you want replicated between sites for DR?  Presumably more than just broker and cluster configs and their metadata since that's relatively straightforward...  Usually the question is what data, effects and business processes do you want to be able to fail over to a geographically separated site, and what sorts of guarantees do you want for the failover.  This naturally affects the design of your application and its deployment fairly intimately.

If you feel comfortable talking more about what you want from your scenario we can probably make some suggestions based on things we've seen done...

Best regards,

Hi All,

What is your recommendation for how to  mirror a rabbitmq installation in a DR site?
