SOLVED

AEM with Multiple authors

Avatar

Employee

Hello Experts,

 

I am exploring if anyone has used a setup with two active-active authors? I know that we can have active-passive authors, but I am checking if it's feasible to have active-active also.

  • Hosting: AMS/On-Prem 
  • Repository: Oak
  • AEM Version: 6.5 SP11

Thanks
Mohit

Yes, it can be acheived by having MongoDB instead of OOTB TarMK. Except this I don't think you can have more than 1 active author at a time.

But, MongoDB will typically be used for supporting AEM author deployments where one of the following criteria is met:

  • More than 1000 unique users per day;
  • More than 100 concurrent users;
  • High volumes of page edits;
  • Large rollouts or activations.

The criteria above are only for the author instances and not for any publish instances which should all be TarMK based. The number of users refers to authenticated users, as author instances do not allow unauthenticated access.

I agree that MongoDB can solve this problem, but we are looking to use TarMK repo only.

 

I will wait for more opinions on this topic.

No, there is not option to run a TarMK setup in an active-active mode.

I also have some understanding, just thought to discuss and take opinion. Thanks for the validation.
