    Metro disaster recovery (DR) provides two-way synchronous data replication between IBM® Fusion HCI clusters installed at two sites. In the event of a site disaster, applications can be failed over to the second site. The replication between the sites is synchronous, hence, the Metro DR solution is only available for metropolitan distance data centers with 40 milliseconds latency or less.

    This IBM Redpaper publication will help you install and configure the new Metro DR function. The use case will show the end-to-end process with the failover and failback of a filebrowser application.
