I am trying to setup an XCP-NG cluster with 3 servers (nodes) on a Dell PowerEdge C6220 II.
The server is populated with 4 nodes and I am planning to use 3 nodes for XCP-NG cluster in HA and 1 node for FreeNAS so I can send my XCP-NG backup to it…
Each node has an Intel X520 Dual-Port SFP+ 10Gb Mezz Network Card.
My question is this:
Can I can link all the nodes via SFP connection in order to maximize performance WITHOUT an external SFP switch? Could anyone post links on some how-to? The video from Tom is a direct peer to peer between 2 servers…
Once setup, the server will be shipped in a collocation rack and the cost of SFP switch is too much for us.
