Load balancing HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric Object Storage
HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric Object Store is HPE’s native implementation of an object storage solution. It provides efficient and optimized S3-based access to data stored in HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric: HPE’s industry-leading data platform.
Built for hybrid data deployments, its data plane delivers direct access and visibility by combining objects, tables, files, and streams into a single, trusted data source.
Key benefits of load balancing
Here are a few key benefits:
- Ensures the application is always available
- Provides stable, optimal performance
- Ability to isolate servers which reduces risk when performing upgrades/maintenance
How to load balance HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric Object Store
HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric Object Store does not require session affinity at the load balancing layer. S3 requests are spread across all MOSS (Multithreaded Object Store Server) nodes as evenly as possible to try and distribute the load.
To provide load balancing and high availability for HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric Object Store, a single VIP is required:
- MOSS Service
Optionally, an additional VIP may be required as follows:
- Force to HTTPS Redirect
