Support for multi-site replication in Compose

Compose Enterprise is lacking critical features to support high availability in Bluemix dedicated environments.

Our client has a RPO of 10 minutes where the recommended HA architecture must be active-active on two Bluemix dedicated instances. Currently, they are using MongoDB and PostgreSQL as Compose databases.

    This is now available through IBM Cloud Databases for PostgreSQL, the next-generation of Compose.

    Thanks a lot Arcangelo for the documents. We can certainly reuse something here for our client.

    Since many customers are looking for multi-site DB replication in Compose, as part of CASE activities, we have developed, tested and documented a workaround solution until Compose Development fils the gap. The solution is available for MongoDB and PostgreSQL (using different mechanisms).

    I'm attaching the two docs, glad to read feedback before we send them to publication.

    Thanks Michel for entering your structured idea.   As we get this new backend system fully connected, functional, and rolled out, we will get this routed to our Compose team.  I can tell you that this is a known requirement, high on their backlog, and work has already started to satisfy this structured idea. The owning Offering Manager will follow up with you if they have any questions or want to add your client's use case to the main requirement/epic/hill.
