Outlines which nodes are compatible with each other for mixed-node environments, allowing expansions through hardware lifecycle changes
- An existing Qumulo cluster
- A version of Qumulo Core that supports the desired mix of node models
While any Qumulo deployment can be expanded by adding more nodes of the same type to it, mixed-node environments allow you to scale by adding nodes of a different type, which can be useful when a particular node is no longer available or a newer one has been released. Qumulo clusters can be expanded with different node types within the same license class. Refer to Add a Node to an Existing Qumulo Cluster for details on adding a node to your existing cluster.
The tables below outline expansion options and the version of Qumulo Core necessary to enable these expansions. If your node type is not shown, it is likely to be included in a future release, at which point the tables will be updated.
NOTE: While these compatibility tables are generally useful for expansions of existing clusters, it is also possible to form a new cluster with a mix of compatible nodes.
HPE Apollo 4200 Compatibility
|HPE Gen9 Node Type||HPE Gen10 Compatible Node||Version of Qumulo Core Required|
Qumulo Mixed Node Compatibility
|Original Node Type||Compatible Node Type||Version of Qumulo Core Required|
|QC208 or QC260||C-192T or C-432T||3.3.3 (targeted)|
|QC24 or QC40||C-72T||3.3.3 (targeted)|
NOTE: It is always best to plan these expansions with your Qumulo account team so that we can provide the best experience for your storage needs.
You should now be able to identify which nodes are compatible with each other for mixed-node environments
