Sharing DATADIR across various instances ?

Hi all,

  our client is thinking to have different Design nodes pointing to the same DATADIR, which is then shared across them. In front of it, a load balances would direct the traffic to the various instances. I strongly believe this is not possible because there is a big problem of synchronizing the updates applied to the same portion of the filesystem.

  Am I wrong in saying this is not possible or does someone have implemented it and can say it's working ?
  Which are the actual showstoppers ? Is it worth trying to implement that ?

Thanks in advance. Best Regards.

  Giuseppe

Hi @gnaldi62 

Yes, you are right! This is indeed not possible. DSS is not horizontally-scaled.
