Re: [Linux-cluster] Redhat GFS 6.1 for sharing same storage from 4 nodes without High availability



Yes, you can use GFS for this.

What you are most likely concerned about in this case is coherency (and a file system that can tolerate multiple machines mounting). Note that just because GFS is cluster-aware and won't corrupt itself, doesn't mean your applications are suitably cluster-aware. A first question you could ask yourself is, "Could I run multiple copies of my application on the same node successfully?" If the answer is yes, then you can probably run multiple copies of your app on different machines when using GFS.

Dear all

I am having a question about Redhat GFS 6.1.
My setup is like these..

I have 4 nodes sharing a storage.All nodes will be concurrently accessing the storage for taking the data files and it will be used by the applications in these nodes.There is no need for a high availability or load balancing.Each node is running a different instance of the same application and each node will be accessing the shared storage for same data.Whether I can use GFS 6.1 for the same.

Whether anybody implemented such a shared storage cluster without high availability or load balancing
