Talk 2 in the SSUG::Digital series looks at how to build a stretched cluster. What are the best practices? What pitfalls are there?Why would you consider a stretched cluster built with Spectrum Scale, as opposed to one of the alternative approaches to high availability? How do stretched clusters work, and what considerations go into planning a successful stretched cluster? We will examine the theory behind Spectrum Scale stretched clusters, review some best practices for designing stretched clusters, and talk about a few cases where stretched clusters have been successfully deployed.
At each of our user group events, we pretty much always start off with “What’s new in XXX release?” and with Spectrum Scale 5.0.5 having just been release, we’re doing the same with the new series of SSUG::Digital events.
