Subject Re: Question about Clustered Setup in two data centers
Date Wed, 02 Mar 2011 17:56:02 GMT
Hi Zsolt,

If the customer has a computer room at their headquarters, you could keep two ZKs in each
datacenter and a fifth ZK at their HQ. In that case you could lose a datacenter and still
have quorum.

of having to run a minimum of three ZooKeeper server instances to ensure fail over. The customer
has two data centers in different locations where data and applications are replicated and
some big-ip appliance in front of the data centers. If one data center fails everything must
still be operable. So he would prefer to only have two  instances one in each data center.
I would be grateful for some advise how to best cope with these contradicting requirements.
