Overview

Centaur - An automatic Milestone Management Server and SQL Data Base Failover mechanism including SQL express

Centaur® is an application that groups two Milestone Management Servers, or two SQL Servers into a virtual entity. It allows logical devices decoupling from physical devices.
The primary server and the secondary server will each have its own physical IP address and they will be combined together to form a virtual server with its own separate virtual IP address.
All the Management Server entities including the Event & Log Servers in addition to the SQL Server will be configured to use the Virtual IP Address in all system communications and 6SS Centaur® will make sure to forward the data to the primary server.
Real-time data replication and synchronization will assure that the secondary server will take over in case the primary server goes down with no downtime or system interruption. An alarm will be triggered in the Smart Client in case of a faulty server.
Centaur® doesn't require a dedicated server, it can be installed on the secondary server & thus reducing IT infrastructure cost
