[quorum] Quorum LARGE cluster minimum online servers? any workaround?


Dec 27, 2021
Hi all,

As I understands it, for a cluster to be accessible from the GUI, we need half of the servers running +1

I have a cluster of 10 servers and I find it pretty annoying to be forced to keep 6 servers On all the time.

Is there a way to get only 3? Under low month workload I could keep only my 3 less power-consumption servers running.

So, just curious about you guys in production or else. How are you dealing with very large cluster of say, 20 servers?
