11.2. Preparing to Deploy Geo-replication

This section provides an overview of the Geo-replication deployment scenarios, describes how you can check the minimum system requirements, and explores common deployment scenarios.

11.2.1. Exploring Geo-replication Deployment Scenarios

Geo-replication provides an incremental replication service over Local Area Networks (LANs), Wide Area Network (WANs), and across the Internet. This section illustrates the most common deployment scenarios for Geo-replication, including the following:
  • Geo-replication over LAN
  • Geo-replication over WAN
  • Geo-replication over the Internet
  • Multi-site cascading Geo-replication
Geo-replication over LAN
You can configure Geo-replication to mirror data over a Local Area Network.

Geo-replication over WAN
You can configure Geo-replication to replicate data over a Wide Area Network.

Multi-site cascading Geo-replication
You can configure Geo-replication to mirror data in a cascading fashion across multiple sites.
