About This Guide

This guide is intended for engineers who are performing the initial configuration on an AWS Elemental Delta cluster.

The full suite of configuration topics for AWS Elemental Delta is described in the following table.

Deployment Description Information
Single Delta node One Delta node without a secondary Delta node. There is no redundancy for the single Delta node. Configuring a Stand-alone Node – Quick Guide
Simple Delta cluster One leader Delta node and one secondary Delta node. The secondary node provides redundancy for the cluster. Configuring a Leader-Secondary Node Cluster
Delta Cluster with egress nodes

One leader Delta node, one secondary Delta node and one or more egress Delta nodes.

The secondary node provides redundancy for the cluster. The egress nodes handle requests for output but do not handle input.
