Fallback and Redundancy

Vantage on Google Cloud leverages the Fallback feature to ensure that data is duplicated across nodes, protecting against the loss of data in the event of a virtual machine failure. Vantage uses Google Persistent Disk for persistent storage, ensuring data safety even if the attached instance fails. This provides redundancy like RAID mirroring in on-premises deployments. When using Persistent Disk, the data disks are encrypted by default; it is also possible to encrypt the root drive.

Node Failure Recovery

Vantage on Google Cloud includes Node Failure Recovery, which automatically detects a failed virtual machine without administrative involvement and will substitute a newly provisioned replacement node. Because storage is provided by Persistent Disk, it is separate from the nodes and persists even when an instance fails. The storage volumes are automatically detached from the failed node and attached to the newly provisioned instance, which avoids data loss. If desired, hot standby nodes are available.
