Subject Re: Zookeeper Cross Datacenter Cluster

Thank for your replies.

I see, in that way then failover won't be possible as if the main/major DC
is down.

Is there something i can do using hierarchical quorum groups or observers ?

I am quiet confused to achieve this setup somehow, as how someone would
build a failover over 2 dc's :-/
