Importance of High Availability Feature in Storage

HA feature plays an important role in Disaster Recovery System (DRS). We can interconnect more than one cluster which is located at different geographically location. In case of any physical damage, if one site goes down then another can take responsibility to serve the data and handover the remaining task once another site recovers from failure.
