[RFE] Deploy multi-region OpenStack environment via OSP Director
Last modified: 2017-10-08 10:49:05 EDT
Description of problem:
RFE opened to keep track on progress on multi-region deployment feature for OSP Director. As at the moment is not supported.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
multi-region not supported
For Enterprise Customers, there is a requirement to deploy OpenStack at multiple Datacenters across the globe. A suitable option for this seems to be using OpenStack Regions to deploy multiple OpenStack environments as separate regions. Enterprise customers want a central management of OpenStack while deploynig across multiple Datacenters. OSP Director is the Red Hat strategic tool to deploy OpenStack in Production environments from version OSP7 onwards. Currently there are no steps available to configure multi-region OpenStack deployment when deploying via OSP DIrector
OpenStack supports a feature called as Region. It is possible to deploy separate OpenStack deployments with each deployment consisting of all the services [e.g. glance, nova, neutron, cinder, heat ... and so on], except that Keystone is common and dashboard is common [with tab to choose region to display]. Each OpenStack deployment has its own respective endpoints registered within the common Keystone.
This feature will not be in OSP 8.
We are working on the delivery plan for this and will provide more information as the plan evolves. Target delivery is planned for OSP 12 or higher, but that plan is likely to change as work is scoped and assigned to specific DFGs for E2E delivery.
