Configure Redundancy Zones for Members

Group members into redundancy zones so that GemFire XD places redundant data copies in different zones.

Understand how to set a member's gemfirexd.properties settings. See Configuration Properties.
Group the datastore members that host partitioned tables into redundancy zones by using the gemfirexd.properties setting redundancy-zone.
For example, if you had redundancy set to 1, so you have one primary and one secondary copy of each data entry, you could split primary and secondary data copies between two machine racks by defining one redundancy zone for each rack. To do this, you set this zone in the gemfirexd.properties file for all members that run on one rack:
redundancy-zone=rack1
You would set this zone in gemfirexd.properties for all members on the other rack:
redundancy-zone=rack2

Each secondary copy would be hosted on the rack opposite the rack where its primary copy is hosted.
