  1. Best option for a cluster on a dedicated server

    They do provide failover IPs but under 1 server, for example if a failover IP is signed to server1, I need to manually transfer it to server2 to make it usable, this could be reached by API (need some reading) but it still takes some minutes for it to take effect, so it's not the most...
  2. Best option for a cluster on a dedicated server

    sorry for double posting but couldn't find this info anywhere online. Is there an option to don't change the network settings of containers when they move from one host to another? For example we have an IP range alocated to our server1 and another IP range to our server2, since we're running...
  3. Best option for a cluster on a dedicated server

    yes right now we have 2 servers under ZFS but they're not connected between them. The idea was having a 3rd server in "standby" which would turn on the different containers / VMs in case of a server failure on the nodes 1 or 2
  4. Best option for a cluster on a dedicated server

    I see, if using vRack provided by OVH i'm the sure latency will be really small because it uses the same OVH network behind. Didn't thought about this yet, I thought that I could replicate the containers/VMs storage between different nodes without having a storage dedicated server. If that's...
  5. Best option for a cluster on a dedicated server

    Hello, currently we have 2 servers hosted in SoYouStart, only problem is that they're not in a cluster and if one server fails then the services running inside go down. For this matter we've been studying the best option to create a proxmox cluster. So far we have 2 options, the first one (and...
  6. Creating an openVPN server with both public and local network

    Hello, in our setup we have 10 LXC containers, these 7 containers have local + public network from proxmox only. Means that each one has a public IP + a local ip (192.168.9.x) being served only in proxmox Then we have 3 servers which only have local network (192.168.9.x) and this is working...
  7. Need advice about ZFS or LVM

    Hello, We are using proxmox for the past year and a half. Everything is working great but we cannot handle all the information processed so we acquired a new server. Right now we are not thinking into a cluster (maybe in a future). The server was acquired at SoYouStart (OVH) same as the server...
  8. About cluster and having servers on the same network

    we can go for 3 servers without any problem. Our priority was to get the cluster to work on different datacenter. To prevent any downtime on our side. Since we mainly work with web applications, a downtime costs us a lot of money
  9. About cluster and having servers on the same network

    Thank you for the info. From what i read online apparently I can setup a vpn server to act as a "local" network between the 2 servers. Will that work? Thank you for that option. I will study that option soon aswell. Right now I am already running ZFS under my machine
  10. About cluster and having servers on the same network

    Hello everyone, currently our company has a server at OVH (SoYouStart), which is working great for now. Last year OVH had a major issue on 2 different datacenter which affected more than 100 000 servers. Our server was one of the affected which lead us without services for a few hours. Also few...
  11. Question about the backups

    Thanks for the advice. yesterday I was also thinking about that, and did a simple container backup in local. Didn't check the I/O. But I saw that the backup time was quite similar
  12. Question about the backups

    Hello, At this moment we're running a server from SoYouStart (32Gb RAM / 6To Disk Space). We are working on the idea of getting 2 + servers to invest in a cluster. The question here is about the backups. For the last 3 months, sometimes proxmox will randomly restart while doing backups. I...
  13. [SOLVED] Which Filesystem to use with proxmox sofraid server

    Right, the vm.swappiness = 1 and on each CT since I always allow more RAM that what I actually need I removed the swap on the CTs. Also had 3 servers running under old snapshots that I forgot to delete. Deleted them hoping now to get the CTs faster. Thank you, Diogo Jesus
  14. [SOLVED] Which Filesystem to use with proxmox sofraid server

    Thanks, also added the vm.swappiness = 1 and removed all swap in containers, now swap went back to 0. Is it a good option to remove swap from all containers? So far I didn't see any downside but it's been only a few hours since I turned on the server.
