Amazon Redshift offers resiliency within the occasion of a single level of failure in a cluster, together with mechanically detecting and recovering from drive and node failures. The Amazon Redshift relocation characteristic provides a further stage of availability, and this put up is concentrated on explaining this computerized restoration characteristic.
When the cluster relocation characteristic is enabled on an RA3 cluster, Amazon Redshift mechanically relocates the cluster in conditions the place points on the Availability Zone stage stop optimum cluster operation, or in case of large-scale failures impacting cluster sources in an information middle inside an Availability Zone. Relocation is completed by creating the cluster’s compute sources in one other Availability Zone. After a cluster is relocated to a different Availability Zone, there isn’t any lack of information and no software modifications are required as a result of the cluster endpoint doesn’t change. This offers a resilient structure to take care of software availability. When a failover is initiated, the precise time to get well depends on the dimensions of a cluster, with the typical time beneath quarter-hour. Observe that the flexibility to relocate is topic to capability availability. Cluster relocation is obtainable at no cost.
The cluster relocation characteristic additionally helps you construct a demonstratable Availability Zone restoration plan in addition to handle capability shortages whereas increasing sources in a given Availability Zone. You may manually transfer the cluster to a different Availability Zone to check your catastrophe restoration plan. In instances the place a cluster can’t be resized or resumed as a consequence of capability shortages in an Availability Zone, you possibly can relocate the cluster to an Availability Zone with extra capability. If the relocation isn’t profitable, the present cluster is left unchanged. The present cluster isn’t eliminated till the brand new cluster is efficiently created as a part of this course of.
Amazon Redshift prospects with operationally delicate purposes require software resiliency within the occasion of an outage in an Availability Zone. The Amazon Redshift relocation characteristic offers software resiliency via an easy-to-use structure with zero lack of information and no software modifications.
The next diagram illustrates the structure earlier than failover
After failover, we now have the next structure
On this put up, we display the right way to allow cluster relocation utilizing both the AWS Administration Console or AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI). We stroll via examples of computerized and handbook relocation, additionally present the right way to create a customized relocation resolution utilizing extra AWS companies.
Ensure you have the next conditions:
Step one is to allow cluster relocation, both through the console or AWS CLI. For extra info, see Managing cluster relocation in Amazon Redshift. When utilizing cluster relocation, pay attention to the limitations.
To allow cluster relocation on the console, full the next steps:
The relocation characteristic requires port 5439. In case your present cluster is utilizing a unique port, you need to modify it to make use of 5439 earlier than modifying it to allow relocation. The next command modifies the port in case your cluster doesn’t use 5439:
The next command permits the availability-zone-relocation parameter on the Amazon Redshift cluster:
The next command disables the availability-zone-relocation parameter on the Amazon Redshift cluster:
When utilizing relocation in Amazon Redshift, you allow Amazon Redshift to maneuver a cluster to a different Availability Zone with none lack of information or modifications to your purposes. With relocation, you possibly can resume operations when there’s an interruption of service in your cluster with minimal impression. The brand new cluster can have the identical endpoint in order that purposes can proceed operations with out modification.
This characteristic doesn’t require any motion from the consumer apart from the one-time configuration to allow the relocation characteristic. When the restoration characteristic is activated, the vacation spot Availability Zone used is outlined within the cluster subnet group.
You may set off the relocation manually, relocating a cluster to a different Availability Zone. Full the next steps:
After relocation is initiated, Amazon Redshift begins the relocation and shows the cluster standing as Relocating. When the relocation full, the cluster standing modifications to Out there.
The next screenshot confirms the cluster has relocated to the right Availability Zone.
On this part, we simulate an computerized cluster failover to a different Availability Zone with a reboot. Our event-based relocation resolution entails organising an alarm with an Amazon Easy Notification Service (Amazon SNS) matter, and creating an AWS Lambda perform to set off the relocation.
To arrange the alarm, full the next steps:
To arrange a Lambda perform to set off Availability Zone relocation in case of cluster failure, full the next steps:
Now we are able to take a look at our customized Availability Zone relocation resolution.
The cluster relocation characteristic offers the next advantages:
On this put up, we walked you thru how the automated Availability Zone restoration characteristic in Amazon Redshift helps you construct a resilient trendy information structure. The put up additionally described the right way to carry out a handbook relocation via the AWS administration console. Lastly, we mentioned the right way to implement an event-based relocation utilizing Amazon SNS and Lambda. These numerous strategies might help you intend your failover methods based mostly on your corporation wants.
