We are starting to roll out our Aerospike servers into production. For budgetary reasons we are currently restricted to 2 nodes in our cluster. I have read up on the documentation with regards to replication as found here: http://www.aerospike.com/docs/operations/configure/namespace/durability/
However I am finding it a bit lacking in terms of explaining what “replication-factor” actually does apart from, well, setting replication “factor”. So here I have a couple of questions with regards to this configuration setting:
What happens when you set this configuration to 1? Does it disable replication?
In the current of 2, if we want to increase data storage capacity of our cluster, how many nodes should we add into the cluster?
