How to backup a HA cluster to a Disaster Recovery Site

We currently have two XG 550 v18 configured in HA Active-Passive mode at our DataCenter (DTC). We also have another site available in case of disaster (DRS)

The question is if there is a way to have another XG in the DRS, synchronised with the HA cluster in DTC (or manual uploading of backups) and that can be activated  in case of disaster on DTC

It seems that this is only possible if the XG in DRS has its own licence. We have invested heavily in the DTCs and cannot afford the cost of a new XG+licence at the moment, especially when this node would only be in production in case of a disaster.

Would there be any other alternative to be able to do this kind of disaster backups on the HA nodes?

Thanks in advance.

  • Hello Emmanuel,

    It seems that there is currently no possibility to set up a 3-node cluster to have a DR node in case of failure of the two nodes in the cluster (it is an option that will be available in the future but it is not available now).

    As an alternative they indicate me that I should have regular backups of the cluster and in case of failure of the whole cluster, upload it to the DR node and connect it. 

    Our problem now is that the DR needs to be licensed. We are looking into it.
    Thanks for your reply.
