How Does it Work?

  • InformaCast Resiliency allows you to have clusters of servers running InformaCast Advanced mass notification software. A cluster can contain one publisher and one subscriber.
  • Messages and recipient groups replicate from the publisher to the subscriber.
  • Each server has a priority ranking. A server will automatically become active if all of the servers ranked in front of it are unavailable.
  • InformaCast Resiliency provides failover, not additional capacity.

How do I Use It?

  • The web user interface provides a single point of administration.

  • You can initiate a mass notification on a cluster of servers by picking up an IP phone and dialing a designated extension. InformaCast Resiliency and Cisco Unified Communications Manager find the active server and send your message to the people who need to hear it.
  • Keep each InformaCast server bookmarked. Log in to the active server to send your message.
