Deploying across multi-regions in Azure?


(Vikas Mestry) #1

Hello,

Are there any pitfalls for deploying / configuring a cluster spread across different regions in Azure, how do we achieve five 9's.

Would creating vpn gateways across different regions & building a cluster have performance impact while indexing / searching / replication ?

Are there any better ways to do this out of the box in elastic

Thanks,
Vikas.

We don't really support having nodes from the same cluster spread in multiple regions.
I'd look instead at Cross Cluster Replication. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elastic-stack-overview/current/xpack-ccr.html

Note that this requires a trial or platinum license. See https://www.elastic.co/subscriptions

Thank you @dadoonet

So if I setup a follower index / cluster on a different region than the original cluster & setup a vpn gateway for connectivity, use the cross cluster search with Azure Traffic Manager to handle search requests, will that be a good approach.

Thanks,
Vikas.

I think so.
