Minimum Recommended Configurations
The following configurations are recommended best practices for SoftNAS SNAP HA™:
- 16 to 64 GB RAM
- 4 vCPU (8 vCPU if volume data compression will be used extensively)
- SSD for read cache and write log
- Separate replication and storage traffic to dedicated physical networks
- Replication should occur from like storage to like storage, to avoid performance bottlenecks. Different read/write speeds can potentially result in cache data loss.
minimum requirements only supply adequate performance for proof of concept or test instances. We recommend that you look at our guidance on instance sizing.
SNAP HA relies on time settings in both the primary and secondary instances. It is important to use the same time for each. If an NTP is used, configure both with the same URL.
