A very concise overview is: - It is a completely new design and implementation meant as a replacement for the existing drbdmanage - It's a two-component system comprising a controller and a satellite component - All communication is through TCP/IP (no control volume, no D-Bus), plain or encrypted (SSL/TLS) - It supports multiple storage pools - It does not keep persistent information on DRBD's state - Instead, it tracks DRBD state changes and makes decisions based on what state the external environment is in - The configuration is kept in an embedded SQL database - It's a parallelized system (multiple nodes can run multiple actions concurrently) - It has very extensive logging and error reporting to make tracking problems as easy as possible - It has multiuser-security (different strength levels can be configured as required) - The controller and satellite components are implemented in Java (currently Java 7 compatible, with plans to move to Java 8 in the future) - The first command-line client for it is still written in Python - It's currently still in a very early stage (an experimental version for LINBIT-internal tests will be ready within a few days) - There are currently three developers working full-time on it, with a fourth one joining in 2018 best regards, -- Robert Altnoeder +43 1 817 82 92 0 <tel:43181782920> robert.altnoeder at linbit.com <mailto:robert.altnoeder at linbit.com> LIN <http://www.linbit.com/en/>BIT <http://www.linbit.com/en/> | Keeping The Digital World Running DRBD - Corosync - Pacemaker f <https://www.facebook.com/LINBIT-DRBD-346343405475/> / t <https://twitter.com/linbit> / in <https://www.linkedin.com/company/linbit> / g+ <https://plus.google.com/+Linbit/about> DRBD® and LINBIT® are registered trademarks of LINBIT, Austria.
