Replication provides a data center redundancy and disaster recovery solution for PubSub+ software event brokers and appliances.
Replication uses corresponding Message VPNs with active and standby replication states at separate replication sites to ensure that Guaranteed Messaging clients can continue to have service through a specified Message VPN should one data center become unavailable. When replication is enabled, Guaranteed messages received by durable endpoints in a Message VPN with an active replication state at one replication site are automatically propagated to corresponding durable endpoints in a duplicate Message VPN with a standby replication state at the other replication site. In addition, local and XA transactions that publish or consume replicated Guaranteed messages are automatically propagated to the standby replication site. If a service failover to one replication site occurs, clients can reconnect to the same Message VPN at a different replication site to continue to receive service, and any messages that were received, but not consumed, before the service interruption can be delivered to them.
The following sections describe how to set up replication:

- Configuring System-Level Replication Settings
- Configuring VPN-Level Replication Settings
Depending on other configuration settings on your event brokers, you may need to do additional tasks, such as:
