How about High Availability mode?

Will Edge support cluster mode? Does edge have any automatic failover system in case the server hosting Edge fails?

    Hi John,

     

    this is from Data Ontap Edge Sales and Technical FAQ (Jan2013)
    https://fieldportal.netapp.com/Core/DownloadDoc.aspx?documentID=72648&contentID=75507

     

    Can I cluster Data ONTAP-v?

    Answer: Data ONTAP-v cannot be clustered. Support for backup or replication to a clustered Data ONTAP system will be available in a future release of Data ONTAP Edge.

     

    Is there a high-availability version of Data ONTAP-v?

    Answer: Data ONTAP-v runs in a single VM. There are numerous methods to have data written to disk, but Data ONTAP-v does not provide a method of high availability at this time. If there is a hardware failure or a software/hypervisor failure, the system will shut down. When the system is shut down, the data will be on disk in a consistent state or, in the case of a hardware failure, the data will be in battery-backed cache awaiting a write to the drive when system power is returned. Both situations are protected against data corruption.

     

    cheers,

     

    Rob
