  • Hyperscale Reference Architecture - scaling limitations
    Posted: 05-20-2020, 6:58 AM

    Hello, I was wondering about scaling limitations of the Hyperscale Reference Architecture. I cannot find any documentation, can you please help me?
    If I start, for instance, with 9 nodes (2 blocks, 6+3), how much can I scale? How many blocks can I have?
    Are DDB limitations (https://documentation.commvault.com/commvault/v11_sp18/article?p=1652.htm) still valid?
    Thanks. Mattia

    Hi Mattia 

    For HyperScale setup when doing Node expansion you will need to expand by the same amount of Nodes in the original configuration 

    I would recommend to start with a 3 Node Gluster and then expand with the first 3 Nodes, once this is successful then expand with the remaining 3 Nodes 

    By default a global DDB with 6 partition will be created and will be 2 DDB partition per Node

    After the first 3 Node expansion the DDB will automatically do a DDB move Partition and distribute the DDB evenly across the 6 nodes

    The final 3 Nodes will just be data Node and will not house any DDB.
