KNIME Server setup for high-availability

#1

Hello,

Can anyone suggest if there is any best practices or white paper of building the high available setup with KNIME Server?
We’re planning to have two VMs in a primary-standby pair, the question is how to organize them to be ready for a primary’s failure event.
The target environment is on Azure, OS is Linux, own-managed virtual machines.

Thanks.

Hi Andriy,

We’ve been starting to put this together in the documentation. Starting with AWS. It’s still a bit short on details, but hopefully it’s a good starting place. https://docs.knime.com/2019-06/aws_marketplace_server_guide/index.html#aws-deployment

The AWS concepts should all have direct equivalents, see e.g. here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/architecture/aws-professional/services
For example Microsoft Files would be a suitable alternative to EFS (which you’d probably want to allow failover of the server).

We’d be happy to review an architecture once you’ve put together a proposal.

Best,

Jon
