Virtual All-in-one Simplex Installation¶
The All-in-one Simplex (AIO-SX) deployment option provides all three cloud functions (controller, worker, and storage) on a single server with the following benefits:
Requires only a small amount of cloud processing and storage power
Application consolidation using multiple containers or virtual machines on a single physical server
A storage backend solution using a single-node CEPH deployment
If you are behind a corporate firewall or proxy, you need to set proxy settings. Refer to Docker Proxy Configuration for details.
An AIO-SX deployment gives no protection against overall server hardware fault. Hardware component protection can be enabled with, for example, a hardware RAID or 2x Port LAG in the deployment.
By default, StarlingX uses IPv4. To use StarlingX with IPv6:
The entire infrastructure and cluster configuration must be IPv6, with the exception of the PXE boot network.
Not all external servers are reachable via IPv6 addresses (for example Docker registries). Depending on your infrastructure, it may be necessary to deploy a NAT64/DNS64 gateway to translate the IPv4 addresses to IPv6.
Refer to StarlingX IPv6 Deployment for details on how to deploy a NAT64/DNS64 gateway to use StarlingX with IPv6.
