Outlines how to launch a new node for your existing Qumulo cloud cluster in AWS
- A Qumulo cluster in AWS running Qumulo Core 2.12.4 or above
- AWS Console access with permissions to launch instances
- AWS account limits large enough to deploy the desired instances and volumes
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 matching the SKU of your existing Qumulo cluster.
- Click Continue to Subscribe.
- Click Continue to Configuration.
- Use the Fulfillment Option drop-down field to select Amazon Machine Image.
- Use the Software Version field to select the release of Qumulo Core matching your cluster. If the exact version is not listed, choose an older version.
- Click Continue to Launch to start the image and use the configuration wizard to configure the VPC, Subnet, Security Group, Instance type, and SSH key to match the other instances in the cluster.
- Launch the instance and note its IP address and Instance ID. The IP address will be used when adding these nodes to an existing cluster.
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
