Re: ZK to coordinate across data centers
What's your BCP requirements? Do you need to span clusters because you
need continued availability if one cluster goes down? What write
throughput do you expect to need, how many clients do you anticipate
serving, how many locks will they need? Write throughput does go down
when you span clusters, but it's not as bad as you might think, unless
your ping time between clusters is very slow. I supported
cross-datacenter clusters doing quite respectable write throughput
(sorry, don't have any numbers handy but it was much more capacity
than my service needed), so I wouldn't overdesign your system before
checking the throughput you could get using a simple setup.
