Subject Re: Is it possible to build multi cloud cluster for Cassandra
Date Fri, 06 Sep 2019 11:55:27 GMT
I will recommend against this idea. And here is why (at a higher level of
abstraction)
1. This means the cloud services aren't reliable in the first place. That
itself is a big problem. Else with reliability guarantees and
multi-region/zone it should be pretty safe to stay in one place.
2. Devil is in the details. None of the current cloud providers behave in a
similar manner of operation. Maintenance will become a nightmare.
3. Setting up security and addition/removal of nodes will be tough if not
irritating.
4. Huge cost involved in data transfer across different platforms if not
inherent delay in replication as well.
5. Potential risk of getting into chase situation amounting up to node
failure due to network delays.
