If you deploy a small EXA virtual and later wants to move to a medium EXA. Is this possible without losing records? What’s the upgrade process?
Yes, they can.
The upgrade process is as follows:
- Create an EXA5100v-M VM
- Join the EXA5100v-M to the existing EXA-S cluster
- The EXA cluster will automatically start replicating the shards from the EXA-S nodes to the EXA-M node.
- Once shard replication is done, remove the original EXA-S from the cluster.
NOTE: Removing the EXA-S node from the cluster will remove all of its data.
- Remove the EXA-S from your virtual infrastructure.
