Vendor Neutral Archive Plans
The VNA Plan utilizes a DICOM trigger on the Primary PowerServer VM to automatically route studies to the Vendor Neutral Archive, based on study status transitions. This provides us with a second copy of all image data at a Secondary Site, which can be used for disaster recovery purposes – this does not ensure High Availability. The DICOM image data can be pulled back to the primary server once the failure has been resolved.
The Basic Backup Plan utilizes RamSoft Incremental Database Backups and Hyper-V Snapshots that are manually created before each RamSoft Software Upgrade. The snapshots are stored on the local storage since external storage is not used in this scenario. VM Snapshots are deleted after the system has passed post-upgrade validation. This is reserved for low-volume, non-mission-critical customers.
The Bronze Backup Plan for Hyper-V deployments is a Hyper-V Host with the RamSoft PowerServer Synchronization Script configured to store PowerServer database backups and critical directories on an external NAS. In this scenario, backup jobs are scheduled to run on a nightly basis (or as often as required), and are configured to copy the data from the PowerServer VM to a Network Attached Storage device. This is reserved for low-volume, non-mission-critical customers.
The Silver Backup Plan for Hyper-V deployments is two Hyper-V Hosts at the same site, with Hyper-V Replica configured to replicate the VM on the primary Hyper-V Host to a standby VM on the secondary Hyper-V Host. Both Hyper-V Hosts should be connected via a crossover cable. This solution protects against hardware failures on the hosts, but not a total loss of the site.
The Gold Backup Plan for Hyper-V deployments is two Hyper-V Hosts, at two separate sites, with Hyper-V Replica configured to replicate the VM on the Primary Hyper-V Host to a stand-by VM on the Secondary Hyper-V Host at a Secondary Site. In this scenario, Hyper-V is configured to replicate all changes in the Primary VM to a replicated copy of the VM on the Secondary Host at the Secondary Site. Hyper-V Hosts must have adequate bandwidth to allow for successful replication of changes. This protects against hardware failures on the hosts, and loss of any one site.
The Platinum Backup plan has been developed to provide a high-performance, redundant solution for RamSoft’s customers. The Platinum Backup plan for Hyper-V deployments utilizes a clustered set of Hyper-V servers to host the PowerServer VM, and stores applications, im-ages, databases, and database backups on a high-performance SAN. In this scenario, the PowerServer VM can be seamlessly moved between hosts for maintenance, updates, or failover purposes. This protects against hardware failures on the hosts, and provides a high-performance solution, but does not protect against total loss at the site.
