Are AWS AZs considered as "Cross Data Center Replication"?




Trying to understand whether I can use Community Edition in an AWS setup spanning 2 AZs, which are technically speaking - different datacenters and as we know, only Enterprise allows “Cross Data Center Replication”: ?

Thanks, Dennis


We do have users who have configured clusters to work across availability zones. The approach is typically to treat each AZ as a rack in a rack-aware cluster. You should also increase the heartbeat timeout for such a cluster; the default settings assume the cluster nodes are tightly coupled.


@kporter Thank you! Really valuable advice. Good to hear its not required to buy Enterprise just because we’ll have multiple AZs.



Did you end up doing that? Did you run into any problems?
