Understanding the best option for AP failover


I have a simple estate of a Master/Standay,

2 x Locals on Site 1 and 2 X locals on site 2 connected over private fibre.

Currently the HA is done with VRRP and 2 VRID with a Master on each of the locals.


I recently reload one of the controllers and the AP took a while to come back, and if this would have been during the working day, would have impact.


After researching a little, i was thinking of dowing Active:Active with both Locals in Dual mood and still load balance.


Would this mean a GRE tunnel to both locals (primary and backup tunnel) and failover be in the seconds rather than minutes.


Also would moveing to ArubaOS - 8 have more options?

AOS8 has clustering, that would nearly eliminate any downtime in case of MD controller failure, but requires the MM in addition to your setup.
