Virtual Standard with Rook Storage Installation


The Standard with Rook Storage deployment option is a standard installation with independent controller and worker nodes.

A Standard with Rook Storage configuration provides the following benefits:

  • A pool of up to 100 worker nodes

  • A 2x node high availability (HA) controller cluster with HA services running across the controller nodes in either active/active or active/standby mode

  • A Rook storage back end solution using a two-to-9x node HA Rook storage cluster that supports a replication factor of two or three


If you are behind a corporate firewall or proxy, you need to set proxy settings. Refer to Docker Proxy Configuration for details.

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.
