Active-active configuration

Active-active configuration


We have a need to upgrade our clusters and thinking to go with active active. Do you have any experience with this?


Generally I would not really recommend using active-active unless it’s one of those n+1 situations.
Reason being that an active-active configuration could leave you in a bad situation if one of the two fails during peak hours. If that happens you have no guarantee that one of the systems can handle the full load.

Even during an n+1 scenario where you have ie. 3 devices in a device group I’d probably avoid it if I could because of the added complexity.
