Shared-nothing Cluster is a distributed computing architecture in which a single node completes each update request. These clusters do not share access to disks of servers. However, they maintain separate copies of crucial data from time-to-time. Typically these clusters contain read-only data which can be stored locally on both systems.
Features of Shared-nothing Cluster
A Shared-nothing system can be scaled simply by adding more nodes. This addition is attainable as there is no central resource which can bottleneck the operations. Usually, in databases, another term used for Shared-nothing is sharding. This system is capable of partitioning its data among multiple nodes. The refinement allows you to replicate the commonly used modified data across the available nodes. Hence, resolving many requests on a single node becomes convenient.
Uses of Shared-nothing Cluster
Shared-nothing Cluster is quite famous for web development. It helps in eliminating the single-point of failures. When an individual node stops functioning, it can get upgraded without the system-wide shutdown. The arbitrary combinations of nodes fulfil the request to update and store essential data during failovers. Thus, the overall system continues to operate without getting disrupted.
This cluster is best suited for software editors which desire to add a high availability option to their existing applications.
DataKeeping for Shared-nothing Cluster
DataKeeper software is capable of creating and protecting the devices and systems. Shared-nothing clusters can be created by building a DataKeeper resource hierarchy. Before the authority extension, the data is written in a local partition or disk only. After getting stretched to the back-up system, the data begins to synchronise. Henceforth, the replication of the data from the primary server to multiple networks becomes uncomplicated.
When one server fails, another server starts functioning on the primary system in a degraded mode. However, the data is transferred to the first server as soon as it starts operating again. Thus, the information is always safeguarded and at a lower risk of getting erased during downtime or disasters.
Eventually, this helps in keeping your crucial business applications safe and secure and in the smooth functioning of your day-to-day operations.
