Vsec Cluster in a Private Cloud

Jump to solution

Hello,

We are using a private cloud which is based on Openstack. I wanted to know about the procedure of setting up a Vsec Cluster and if it is same with Azure or not? ... Please help how to proceed.

We do have unicast sync, but I guess that's only for public cloud versions at the moment (e.g. AWS, Azure).

Lack of ClusterXL support for OpenStack is mentioned in the limitations of the vSEC for OpenStack R80.10 Administration Guide.

That means: no clustering at the moment.

Unicast sync is planned for R80.20, which would allow this to work.

To the best of my knowledge, setting up a cluster in OpenStack is the same as for physical gateways or in VMware in Network Mode (not with NSX).

Hi Daemon,

Thanks for your answer. Does it use multicasting or broadcasting for the state synchronization?... There is a limitation in cloud which does not allow to do it and we should find another way to sync the nodes.

Ah. Thanks for this useful information. Is there any update when we will have the R80.20? We really need this Unicast Sync.

Timelines for the release of R80.20 are not finalized, but you are welcome to use the public EA.

That said, I'm not sure if this feature is present in the current public EA or not.
