Hi all - I’ve been looking in deploying on Microsoft Azure (CentOS) and have checked out this site (Azure’s “Regions and availability for virtual machines in Azure” and also, of course, the CockroachDB docco here and here.
From these it is not clear to me whether I should be using an Availability Set (AS) or an Availabiltity Zone (AZ) with Azure? Also, I have to factor in cost into the equation, but I would like to hear what is the “ideal” 3 node deployment on a cluster within a region. Availability Zones are a relatively recent feature but are available near me in the Northern Europe region (in this case Ireland).
Any recommendations, references, URLs and/or ideas welcome.
