OpenText Archive Server on Azure

OpenText Archive Center 16.2 Single File Vendor Interface (VI) using Microsoft Azure Storage Account as a storage device is now supported on Linux. Checkout this brief overview of its usage on one of our current projects. Thanks to Manish Shah (Microsoft) for his contribution and working with OpenText to achieve support on Linux, to Supriya Pande for her article on the Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer, to Oleh Khrypko (SAP) for his input to handling disaster recovery on OpenText Archive Center and Gary Jackson (Aliter Consulting) for the article.

OpenText Archive Server on Azure

  1. 1. OpenText Archive Center on Azure
  2. 2. • This presentation illustrates one possible implementation of OpenText Archive Center 16.2 system on the Microsoft Azure public cloud based on a recent customer requirement • Key requirements from the customer included a highly available solution operating in the primary Azure Region #1 (EU West in this case) with a disaster recovery solution operating in the paired Azure Region #2 (EU North in this case) • Key documents used to prepare this solution were: – OpenText Administration Guide – Microsoft Azure Installation for OpenText Introduction

  4. 4. • For the OpenText Archive Center application servers Azure VM type D4_v3 with 4 CPUs and 16gb RAM • For the SAP HANA database servers Azure VM type E-series E16_v3 with 16 CPUs and 128gb RAM • High Availability can be achieved in 2 ways: – By deploying an Operating System cluster such WSFC on Windows or Pacemaker on Linux – By deploying a single VM with premium storage and relying on Azure VM Restart which Microsoft now guarantee an SLA of 99.9% (the chosen option for this customer) https://azure.microsoft.com/en-gb/support/legal/sla/virtual-machines/v1_8/ Architecture Summary
  5. 5. • Disaster Recovery can be achieved by deploying like-for-like components in both Azure regions • The architecture described here operates in an active/active mode • Archive replication synchronizes the OpenText logical archive content created on the application server in Region #1 to the application server in Region #2 • In each region, the following are deployed: – 1 OpenText Archive Center application server – 1 SAP HANA database server – 1 Azure Storage Account with LRS – 1 Azure Internal Load Balancer (ILB) listening on SSL port 443 and forwarding onto Tomcat SSL port 8090 Architecture Summary
  6. 6. • In the event that Microsoft declares a disaster in Region #1, the paired Region #2 becomes the primary location for the tenant (customer) • OpenText Application server in Region #2 becomes the active OpenText Archive Center application with associated Tomcat web application server • SAP HANA database server in Region #2 becomes the active OpenText database server • The Storage Account in Region #2 becomes the active storage media for read/write access to new archive repositories • DNS for Azure Load Balancer is adjusted to reference the VM in Region #2 In the Event of Disaster

  9. 9. • Local Redundant Storage (LRS) – Provided through replication to storage scale unit within a data center – Provides 3 local replicas of data – Provides 11 nines availability over a given year – Write request only confirmed after data is written to all replicas – Useful for high availability scenario For further details please see the following Azure article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-redundancy-lrs About Azure Storage Redundancy
  10. 10. • Zone Redundant Storage (ZRS) – Provided through replication to storage clusters in a single region – Provides 3 zone replicas of data – Provides 12 nines availability over a given year – Good choice for high availability scenario with Availability Zones For further details please see the following Azure article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-redundancy-zrs About Azure Storage Redundancy
  11. 11. • Geo Redundant Storage (GRS) – Provides replication of data to a second region – Provides 3 local replicas of data in each region – Provides 16 nines availability over a given year – Excellent for regional disaster recovery For further details please see the following Azure article: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/storage/common/storage-redundancy-grs About Azure Storage Redundancy
  12. 12. • Provides an explorer-like GUI for working with Azure Storage Accounts. • Allows administration of data lakes, files, blobs, tables and queues. For details on how better to use Azure Storage Explorer, please see the following excellent Red Gate article by Supriya Pande from our LinkedIn network: https://www.red-gate.com/simple-talk/cloud/cloud-development/using-azure-storage- explorer/ Azure Storage Explorer
  13. 13. • OpenText Knowledge Center (https://knowledge.opentext.com) – Microsoft Azure Installation for OpenText – OpenText Archive Centre Storage Platforms 16.2 Release Notes • Microsoft Azure: – Azure Storage Account Overview – Azure Storage Documentation • Microsoft Azure Storage Explorer – Using Azure Storage Explorer • Further details are available on request from Cloud Consultants – mailto:info@aliterconsulting.co.uk Reference Material
