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.
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.
Any official documentation available on this topic for self managed on premise linux VMs ?
Thank you for your message.
Currently, we do not have any official documentation available for self-managed on premise on Linux VMs.
We will keep you posted as soon as we will release it. You will be able to find it here: https://docs.knime.com/
