Hi,

is nifi site-to-site is a feature of multi-datacenter support for nifi? can someone explain some scenarios, is it from one nifi cluster to another nifi cluster?

Thanks,

Re: nifi site-to-site

Site-to-site is much more versatile than multi-DC communications (though this is a great use case for this NiFi's feature). S2s can link multiple clusters (or standalone instances), can even connect a cluster to itself (for data re-distribution), as well as used for MiNiFi to NiFi communication. It's also bi-directional, meaning it can be push/pull in either direction. At the end of the day this means you will be able to communicate e.g. over a corporate HTTP proxy regardless of the inbound/outbound firewall rules, there's enough flexibility to accommodate these scenarios in s2s.
