Improve RightFax Image High Availability with SQL Image Storage
- Reduce RightFax Environment Complexity
- Leverage Existing SQL Infrastructure and Tools including:
- Database Mirroring
- Log Shipping
- AlwaysOn Availability Groups
- Offload Storage Tasks & Network Management Tasks
Organizations can now move their fax image storage from the traditional Windows file share to a SQL database with the new SQL Image Storage Module for RightFax. The largest benefit to making this move is the ability to leverage existing SQL high availability strategies to enhance your RightFax infrastructure’s overall availability.
Remember, if the shared images directory is not available for any reason, RightFax will not work.
High availability for Windows file servers often requires configuring Failover Clustering with Cluster Shared Volumes (CSVs). Implementing this strategy is complicated and results in a very complex Windows server infrastructure. However, most organizations have already taken steps to implement high availability for transactional data within their SQL infrastructure, such as configuring Always On availability groups.
Leverage existing knowledge
Use all the tools SQL has for replications and high availability to make sure your RightFax system stays up.
Simplify RightFax Environment
You have the option to use a separate database from the RightFax metadata, Use all the high availability tools such as log shipping, availability groups, and always on failover clustering
Moving your images out of a Windows storage into SQL, we have found there is no degradation of service
