It's been a while since I've been here - and always looking into ways to improve the current state of my moodle. (Production as well as research purposes)
I'm looking at a use case for resilience and availability of the moodledata and from my understanding, GlusterFS over FUSE may be a good option.
The infrastructure scenario is this:
A webserver cluster of 4-6 servers
A database server or pair of servers (clustering not an option yet), possibly master-slave replication as a backup measure
A filestorage cluster built on GlusterFS comprising three storage peers with file replication for identical mirrors
A pair of redis cache servers
I already ran some file-based scenarios and think that a GlusterFS deployment can work for both. The auto failover and self-healing properties make it very desirable.
Is anyone using GlusterFS for MoodleData?
Do you have any experiences/caveats to share?
Thanks for sharing
