About This Guide

This guide is intended for engineers who are upgrading or downgrading software versions of an existing installation of AWS Elemental Delta.

The following types of deployments are addressed:

Single AWS Elemental Delta node

One Delta node without a secondary Delta node. One node provides all input and output support. There is no redundancy for the Delta node.

Simple AWS Elemental Delta cluster

One Delta node is the leader, with another node as a secondary. The leader node receives input and responds to output requests. The secondary node provides input redundancy for the cluster and handles outgoing content requests.

AWS Elemental Delta cluster with egress nodes

One Delta node is the leader, one a secondary, and one or more additional nodes are used for egress only. The leader node receives input and responds to output requests. The secondary node provides input redundancy for the cluster and handles outgoing content requests. The egress nodes handle requests for output but don't handle input.

For more information about these various deployments, see AWS Elemental Delta version 2.3 Configuration Guide.
