The Distributed Replicated Block Device (DRBD) is a replicated storage solution for Linux. DRBD allows low-level storage block devices to be replicated and synchronized between two host machines, and, in the case of three-way replication, three host machines. In this learning activity, you will set up low-level storage and then using DRBD to replicate and synchronize that block device.

What are Hands-On Labs?

Hands-On Labs are scenario-based learning environments where learners can practice without consequences. Don't compromise a system or waste money on expensive downloads. Practice real-world skills without the real-world risk, no assembly required.
