Production Ready OpenStack - Recipes for Successful Environments

By: Arthur Berezin

Overview of this book

OpenStack is the most popular open source cloud platform used by organizations building internal private clouds and by public cloud providers. OpenStack is designed in a fully distributed architecture to provide Infrastructure as a Service, allowing us to maintain a massively scalable cloud infrastructure. OpenStack is developed by a vibrant community of open source developers who come from the largest software companies in the world. The book provides a comprehensive and practical guide to the multiple uses cases and configurations that OpenStack supports. This book simplifies the learning process by guiding you through how to install OpenStack in a single controller configuration. The book goes deeper into deploying OpenStack in a highly available configuration. You'll then configure Keystone Identity Services using LDAP, Active Directory, or the MySQL identity provider and configure a caching layer and SSL. After that, you will configure storage back-end providers for Glance and Cinder, which will include Ceph, NFS, Swift, and local storage. Then you will configure the Neutron networking service with provider network VLANs, and tenant network VXLAN and GRE. Also, you will configure Nova's Hypervisor with KVM, and QEMU emulation, and you will configure Nova's scheduler filters and weights. Finally, you will configure Horizon to use Apache HTTPD and SSL, and you will customize the dashboard's appearance.

Configuring Galera cluster for MariaDB

Galera is a multimaster cluster for MariaDB, which is based on synchronous replication between all cluster nodes. Effectively, Galera treats a cluster of MariaDB nodes as one single master node that reads and writes to all nodes. Galera replication happens at transaction commit time, by broadcasting the transaction write set to the cluster for application. Client connects directly to the DBMS and experiences close to the native DBMS behavior. write set replication (wsrep) API defines the interface between Galera replication and the DBMS:

Getting ready

In this section, we will install Galera cluster packages for MariaDB on our three controller nodes, then we will configure Pacemaker to monitor all Galera services.

Pacemaker can be stopped on all cluster nodes, as shown, if it is running from the previous steps:

# pcs cluster stop --all

How to do it...

Perform the following steps on all controller nodes:

  1. Install galera packages for MariaDB:

    # yum install ...
