On-Prem Active/Passive Resiliency

Active/Passive resiliency patterns with automatic recovery mechanisms like Kubernetes allow you to accomplish automatic failover without manual intervention in the event of node or VM failure. 

Combines With 

Problems Addressed

  • Automatic recovery from application node failure
  • Automatic recovery from hardware failure


  • Sonatype Nexus Repository Pro
  • Requires external PostgreSQL database
  • Resilient and shared blob storage
  • Automatic recovery mechanism (e.g., kubernetes)

Factors to Consider

  • Recovery Time Objective (RTO) for node failure in minutes
