Prevents Downtime During Software Upgrades
The GridGain Rolling Production Updates feature enables you to co-deploy multiple versions of GridGain software and allows them to co-exist on nodes in your cluster as you roll out new versions. This prevents any downtime when performing software upgrades.
Rolling Production Upgrades Details
New versions of GridGain can be automatically deployed on live clusters to provide continuous availability. The GridGain Rolling Production Upgrades feature enables you to co-deploy multiple versions of GridGain software and allow them to co-exist on your cluster as a new version is rolled out. This prevents downtime when performing software upgrades.
With Rolling Production Upgrades enabled, you can have a new node with a newer version of GridGain join your existing GridGain cluster to replace an existing node. Data is rebalanced to accommodate this new member of the cluster. Once rebalancing is complete, you can shut down the corresponding old node. This process can be repeated until all servers are upgraded to the new version. Rolling Production Upgrades allows you to upgrade GridGain one node at a time, without stopping the whole cluster.
