Cluster Building with Stackato


Published on

Private PaaS is supposed to accelerate the development and deployment workflows in enterprises, but that can't happen until the PaaS is set up. Stackato takes the novel approach of using pre-built VM images and simple configuration commands to make setup painless. This half-hour webinar will show you how to set up your own PaaS cluster and get it ready for the end users.

In this webinar Troy Topnik, Technical Communications Manager, and Ho Ming Li, Cloud Solution Architect will provide an overview and a live demonstration that includes:

- An overview of Stackato's role-based architecture
- Turning a "micro cloud" into a cluster core node
- Attaching nodes and enabling roles
- Outlining security groups and port configuration
- Ensuring fault tolerance and redundant components

  4. 4. | @activestate | | Copyright 2014 We'll use HP Cloud / OpenStack because… ● Stackato VM is publicly available there ● setup experience will be similar on any OpenStack ● we can show a scriptable CLI interface (Nova)
  5. 5. | @activestate | | Copyright 2014 Creating a Stackato Cluster The "stem cell" philosophy of the Stackato VM ● boots as a fully functional micro cloud ●connects to a Primary node (MBUS IP) ●can take on one or more roles 'kato' command automates most of the configuration ● common configuration and maintenance tasks are automated ● more fine-grained control than the web console No BOSH required, much shorter learning curve
