Network Attached Storage​

 Hi,Our customer wants a stretched cluster between 2 HNAS 5200 with the storage in GAD configuration (about 5 km away). Question: Does HDRS support this configuration yet? And if it doesn't, would it still be possible to implement (and be supported)?

It's on the roadmap to support a 2 node HDRS cluster, I'll ask for some specifics around when that will be. But right now this type of configuration is only supported with a 4 node cluster. You can also setup normal GAD just from a resilliancy perspective.

It seems like the plan is for HDRS 5.2 seems to support this.

We are in the process of releasing 2 node support using HDRS within the next few weeks - planning by end of Nov '21. Please keep tabs with your local account team.
HDRS with 4-node GEfN support was GA'd two weeks ago; documentation is available on SupportConnect.


As an aside, this is a services/partner delivery solution.
