Outlines how to launch a new node in AWS for your existing Qumulo cloud cluster in AWS
- Cloud Cluster with Qumulo Core 2.12.4 and above
- AWS Console access
- Command line (qq CLI) tools installed via API & Tools in the Web UI
One of the perks of hosting your storage in the cloud is the ability to dynamically add more capacity as your storage needs increase. Starting up a new node (a.k.a, launching a new instance) is a simple process while adding the instance to an existing cloud cluster is even easier.
Launch a New Node
- Go to the AWS Marketplace listing for your cluster.
- Start a new instance of the Amazon Machine Image for that listing. Note that the new instance must be started in the same VPC and Security Group as the cluster and have the same IAM role (e.g., for floating IPs).
- If an image is available with the same version of Qumulo Core as is used on your cluster, start an instance from this AMI. Otherwise, choose an image with the closest (older) version.
Keep in mind that if this new node uses an older version of Qumulo Core than your cluster, it must be upgraded before you can add it your cluster using the steps provided in the Qumulo in AWS: Upgrade an Unconfigured Node article. Once the software version matches between the cluster and the new node, you can add it to your cluster using the Qumulo in AWS: Add a Node to an Existing Cloud Cluster article as a guide.
You should now be able to successfully launch a new node for an existing Qumulo cloud cluster in AWS
