Service Guard Linux Cluster type

Service Guard Linux Cluster type

Hello All,

As we usaually said that Microsoft cluster is a shared nothing cluster model, can we confirm that HP ServiceGuard Linux is a shared Disk cluster model?

Re: Service Guard Linux Cluster type

Not really. With basic ServiceGuard, any cluster disk resource can be used by one node at a time only. The default cluster mode is shared-nothing.

You can optionally use a cluster filesystem like OCFS2 with ServiceGuard: in this case, the result can be a shared-disk cluster. Such a configuration has more complicated requirements than a basic ServiceGuard setup.

Not all cluster filesystems available for Linux are integrated with ServiceGuard, so you may end up with two separate clustering systems co-existing on the same set of cluster nodes.

The docs.hp.com website has some whitepapers about such implementations in the High Availability -> ServiceGuard for Linux section.

if you want a cluster file system option for Linux consider Polyserve. It provides application clustering with VIPs and services and a cluster file system.

I got it I wanted to confirm that the default Cluster mode for Service Guard Linux is shared nothing.
