Disaster Recovery / Replication for oVirt/RHV
If you ever heard about VMware Site Recovery Manager: Disaster Recovery Software? If your answer is yes and you miss to getting this set of features in oVirt, Red Hat Virtualization project, I’ve got some good news for you :-).
In November 2018, we launched an open source project called DRoVirt. What’s more, we did with a team a first few commits! Now we working on an app skeleton! If you have not heard about the project yet and, below you can find a short overview.
DRoVirt | Disaster Recovery – Replication for oVirt/RHV
DRoVirt project has been created to address the need of Disaster-Recovery process of oVirt/RHV environments. DRoVirt’s main objective is to provide a simple way to replicate VMs running in an oVirt environment.
Our plan is to deliver a Python-based solution that consists of 3 components:
- – Data-mover – responsible for grabbing data periodically and transferring it
- – Server/API – central management point to invoke tasks
- – Database – small DB to store current tasks
- – CLI – utility to easier manage the replication configuration tasks
The actual implementation of the replication is subject to discussion. Initially we want to start with oVirt/RHV 4.2 Disk Image Transfer API and later add additional strategies.
DRoVirt data mover is supposed to periodically snapshot and export data from RHV/oVirt API and transfer it to a second location where increments can be restored.
