VSE for Storage High Availability or Cluster?

Jump to solution

Hi Heroes,

Does VSES support HA or Cluster deployment? to me it looks not, or do we have alternate methods to approach this?

One of the biggest concerns from my customer is they are afraid that VSES server is down, and cause their network storage hang... any information is much appreciated!!!

Hi @User21257322,

My apologies for missing the same.

VSES does not load balance/Fail Over, the filer does. VSES sits and waits for requests, and just responds to those requests. Hence, in a situation where VSES is down, there should not be any impact because of VSES. It would all boil down to how the Filer is designed to react when it does not receive a response fro the file scan request it raises.

Hi @AdithyanT , Sorry may I ask one additional question here, according to the data I gathered so far, the best practice when implementing VSES is configure 2 VSES servers for 1 Filer, may I know how is this works? I mean how the filer determines which VSES server to send scan requests to?

Hi @User21257322,

Thank you for your response. I am only glad I get to respond to your queries. The answer to this query is actually the same as above.

VSES does not load balance...the filer does. VSES sits and waits for requests, and just responds to those requests. So our role is handle the request we receive and it will be the role of the filers to decide on sending requests. We merely scan on request.
I sincerely hope this clarifies your query.
