Deployment OptionsΒΆ

A variety of StarlingX deployment configuration options are supported.

All-in-one Simplex

A single physical server providing all three cloud functions (controller, worker and storage).

All-in-one Duplex (up to 50 worker nodes)

Two HA-protected physical servers, both running all three cloud functions (controller, worker and storage), optionally with up to 50 worker nodes added to the cluster.

Standard with Storage Cluster on Controller Nodes

A two node HA controller + storage node cluster, managing up to 200 worker nodes.

Standard with Storage Cluster on dedicated Storage Nodes

A two node HA controller node cluster with a 2-9 node Ceph storage cluster, managing up to 200 worker nodes.

Note

A storage backend is not configured by default. You can use either internal Ceph or an external Netapp Trident backend.

All StarlingX systems can use worker platforms (worker hosts, or the worker function on a simplex or duplex system) configured for either standard or low-latency performance.

The Ceph storage backend is configured by default.
