Data replication between 2 Analytics Subsystem clusters

In APIC V5 we have ACTIVE-ACTIVE setup for our DataPower(DP) servers (2 DP each DC, 4 in total) and 2 Management Servers (1 each DC) so in case 1, if whole DC goes down we are still able to record all the API events using other DC. All DataPower servers are in one cluster (DP Service) which allows to enforce Rate Limit. Analytics data (API events) are widely used in Nordea for many business and operations reasons - multiple dashboards have been created in API Manager where API Providers are able to check different things - e.g. basic thing like total number of calls for specific API. We've noticed few issues already when we started looking for migration to APIC V10, according to various IBM documentation and IBM meetings: - one DataPower cluster enforces one Analytics Cluster associated. - we can't span Analytics Cluster across 2 DC the same way that we can do for DataPower. - If we have 2 Analytics Clusters then we can't ensure data synchronization between those then the data will be fragmentized on both sides. Current API Connect V10 possibilities doesn't allow us to secure the same level of analytics data availability and accessibility as it was in V5: - having 1 analytics cluster in single DC causes data loss if this particular DC goes down - having 2 analytics cluster implies data fragmentation between those Hence, it was concluded with IBM architect and engineers that we should request for ACTIVE-PASSIVE setup and data replication across clusters. Such mechanism is already available for Management and Developer Portal subsystems documented here:
