Subject Re: Multi DC setup for analytics
Date Fri, 01 Apr 2016 03:48:11 GMT
Hey Bryan,

Thanks for the info, we inferred as much, currently the only other thing we
were trying were trying to start two separate instances in Analytics
cluster on same set of machines to talk to respective individual DC's but
within 2 mins dropped that as we will have to change ports on atlas one of
the existing DC's so when they join with the analytics cluster they are on
same port.

for now we are just getting another set of machines for this.


I had known about the pattern of using a separate analytics cluster for
cassandra but thought we could join them across two clusters, my bad now
that i think of it i think it would have been better to have just one DC
for realtime prod requests instead of two.

are there ways of merging existing clusters to one cluster in cassandra ?
