Deployment OptionsΒΆ

StarlingX provides a pre-defined set of standard configurations. These configurations are:

All-in-one Simplex (Simplex or AIO-SX)

The Simplex configuration runs all edge cloud functions (control, storage, and application workloads) on one node. This configuration is intended for very small and physically isolated edge sites that do not require high availability.

All-in-one Duplex (Duplex or AIO-DX)

The Duplex configuration runs all edge cloud functions (control, storage, and application workloads) on one node. There is a second node in the system for Active / Standby based high availability for all platform and application services.

Standard with Controller Storage

This configuration allows for 1 or 2 controller nodes that also provide storage for the edge cloud. The configuration also allows for between 1 and 99 compute nodes to run application workloads. This configuration works best for edge clouds with smaller storage needs.

Standard with Dedicated Storage

This configuration has dedicated storage nodes in addition to the controller and compute nodes. This configuration is used for edge clouds that require larger amounts of storage.

Standard with Ironic

This configuration extends the standard configurations to add the OpenStack Ironic service, which allows application workloads to run on bare metal servers.

Distributed Cloud

An upcoming feature for StarlingX that will allow one controller to control a number of remote nodes.
