Enabling High Availability Features

Enabling High Availability Features

The fault tolerance and the high-availability features of Greenplum Database can be configured.
Important: When data loss is not acceptable for a Pivotal Greenplum Database cluster, master and segment mirroring must be enabled in order for the cluster to be supported by Pivotal. Without mirroring, system and data availability is not guaranteed, Pivotal will make best efforts to restore a cluster in this case. For information about master and segment mirroring, see About Redundancy and Failover.

For information about the utilities that are used to enable high availability, see the Greenplum Database Utility Guide.
