There are some wiki which explain how to install and setup AppScale.
But I didn't find anything related to the extensive use of AppScale. I mean, what to do in case of major outage ?
If the node crashes but can be rebooted and could work : does AppScale automatically replicates what is missing from other nodes to it ? So basically, as long as the node isn't corrupted, does it need anything from the sysadmin to get back to work ?
If the node crashes and is dead : let's imagine a network failure of the NAS which corrupted the filesystem, an explosion of the datacenter where this node is, or anything that would make the node DEAD and unable to boot... Can you just setup a new node, add it to the your "cluster" and it will replicates everything on its own ?
What does the sysadmin need to do to make a node back to work (time, complexity etc..) ?
Is there any docs which covers these cases of use ?
