asked 2013-06-19 23:38:57 -0500

Hi guys, I setting swift project.

a of doubt, after read documentation.

Using swift version 1.8, i have a options for zone, like a dc on city and second dc in another city.

in this region i have each cluster with a zone with 4 hosts, in documentation i found a example for 1 host per zone.

My doubt are about, what's the best options to set a cluster in this regions?

1 zone with 4 node storage, or a 4 zones each storage node?

each storage node with 24 disks, 2 swith proxy + loabalancer

"1 zone with 4 node storage" I think

In my experience, region is used to different city, datacentor, or vlan in test environment. Zone is used to server rack/cabinet, ip of course is for nodes, sdx is for hard drive.

Your ip address in your ring is already to distinguish different nodes.
