2 node cluster - low cost robo

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

@dbauer1 - Minimum is still 3 nodes as of today, and the exact requirements for a future 2 node solution have not been released yet. Just wanted to say this as I want to make sure we dont improperly set expectations that a two node 1050 cluster will ever work, as it simply just isn't a feature yet.

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

Has there been any update to this request on the CE platform?

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

The mentioned 1,2,3.....  node clusters at .NEXT.  I'm not 100% sure when it happens but it was mentioned.

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

I heard the same, didn't know if that included CE or not.

@Jon.  Jon, you probably know better than all of us.

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

...and it would be great if Jon would finally come up with an answer: 1- and 2-node clusters were already promised on the .NEXT in Vienna.

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

Any Update on 1- 2- node clusters?

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

Hi Jon,

 

I would actually support Brian idea with 2 node cluster for low cost robo.

I recently attend Dell-EMC MasterClass and Nutanix 1-day bootcamp, and discuss this idea with presenter. Both said it's not something Nutanix consider at this moment... citing the 3-node cluster cost still going to be better than traditional single node.  IF the robo only run 1 or 2 VM, the extra capacity just a waste of resource. Maybe the 3rd node (witness) can be linked back to (utilise) HQ cluster... although the latency might be an issue.

 

Cheers,

Tonij

Re: 2 node cluster - low cost robo

Hi,

My company would be interested by a low cost Robo solution.

Small remote sites have one or two rooms. They just need of a few VM but a replication to be able to restart quickly.

The only alternative I found is to setup 2 ESXi with local disks and use vSphere replication between the two nodes.

What is the budget? the SX1000 series for robo can be affordable, even with 3 node cluster.
