What is considered a large cluster?

out of curiosity: What is considered to be a large ScyllaDB cluster? (in terms of number of nodes)

Is anyone using RF > 3 to avoid problems with availability?


We know of a cluster of a user of ours, that has 180 nodes. That is definitely considered large and in some ways it is pushing ScyllaDB, just by the sheer size of that cluster.

That said, I don’t know at what number of nodes a cluster is considered large. I would say somewhere in the low-mid double digit number of nodes (30-50).

I’ve also seen a cluster with many data centers, geographically dispersed across multiple continents.

Number of nodes is one measure of large, number of DC’s is another.
