As many of you are well aware, CygNet does not have a great solution for productized failover. You can replicate CygNet data. You can setup a clustering environment to detect failures. You can write scripts to swap config files in order to change a services role. I’ve talked to many of you over the last month or two and for those who do have a working solution, it took a lot of work to setup, and takes a lot of work to maintain.
For those of you who are in this boat, or are afraid to get into the boat, I’m happy to announce that we have a team assembled and are working to vastly improve this process!
I’m happy to announce that CygNet Operator, our first mobile app, has been officially released! I won’t go into details on the app as that was already covered in a previous post. I just wanted to let you all know that you can find the app in the iTunes store by searching for “CygNet Operator”. You can’t do anything with the app until you connect to a host, so we have a test site running that is publically available. If you are interested, just email us and we will send you the details (CygNetBlogAdmin@weatherford.com).
