Swift replication with remote region and dedicated network

asked 2014-12-05 11:17:52 -0600


i'm planning my setup of company's production swift cluster. The idea is to have one part of the cluster in the main datacenter and the other part on a geographically remote one.

We started planning the local part using the suggestions of openstack documentation (example object storage installation architecture)

My doubts are about replication with remote region. The dedicated network for storage that we're planning to use is a non-routed net, that permits connection only between directly attached hosts. Is this an error? Do i need that this private storage network could reach the remote replication network?

Does exist somewhere on the internet someone that has implemented a cluster like this and that can give me some hints? :-)

Devs addressed me to the right solution: any dedicated net has to provide the ability to contact remote networks with the same role (local replication has to contact remote replication, and so on)
