AEM With TarMK - Options


We can have 3 types of TarMK configurations for AEM Oak Clusters.

1) Single TarMK Instance

A single TarMK instance runs on a single server. For Author instances, this is the default deployment method.





Major advantages are,
  • Simple
  • Easy to maintain
  • Better performance

The disadvantages:
  • Scalability is within the limits of server capacity
  • No failover capacity

2) TarMK Cold Standby

Here single TarMK instance acts as the primary instance & the repository from the primary is replicated to a standby, which acts as failover system.




Major advantages are,
  • Simplicity
  • Maintainability
  • Performance
  • Failover

The disadvantages:
  • Scalability is within the limits of server capacity
  • There is a manual task involved in detecting failure and failover to start working

3) TarMK Farm

Multiple Oak instances are involved and each Oak instance is running with one TarMK. All TarMK repositories are not in sync
TarMK Farm is the default deployment for publish environments.




Major advantages are,
  • Performance
  • Scalability for read access
  • Failover

Final notes:
Always remember this. Adobe highly recommends TarMK as the default persistence technology for both the AEM Author and Publish instances, except in the use cases outlined here.
