The simplest cluster configuration is a two-node cluster. Configurations of more than two nodes are called N-way clusters. The maximum number of cluster nodes is dependent on three factors:

  • The model of HNAS server being used as cluster nodes
  • The server firmware version in use
  • The maximum number of cluster nodes allowed by the cluster's licenses

The following diagram shows the logical view of an HNAS server N-way cluster configuration of 4 nodes.
