Hello, currently i have working openstack project with just one compute node, the configuration and topology is follow here, with little bit custom configuration. The point is, how can i add more compute node in that topology? i want to use switch (unmanaged) instead of direct connected to network node, is that possible? i know i can used vlan but it must used manageable switch.

Yes, you can add another compute-node. You will need to set the local_ip in ovs_quantum_plugin.ini on the new node. GRE mode only requires IP connectivity from the physical network, so you will not need to concern yourself with physical VLANs.

You should open a new question about the backup - I'm not sure is it specific to OpenStack. There is a huge range of backup options and picking one depends on your requirements. The more info you can provide the better.
