The enterprise developer can create and utilize the Palette compute under the scope of a Tenant admin. Once these compute resources are launched and ready to use they can shift to the Palette Dev Engine to explore our developer centric offerings. The creation of Cluster Groups is a deployment under the tenant scope. They can also utilize:
- The Cluster Groups available under the Palette System Scope.
- The Cluster Groups launched in the developer's enterprise datacenter/environment.
A Cluster Group is an aggregation of host clusters deployed through the Palette Tenant Admin console. Palette Virtual Clusters can be launched into host cluster groups. The cluster groups are created under two scopes:
- Palette provides a default cluster group called
beehiveat the system scope in the us-east region.
To create a Palette Host Cluster Group, you need to deploy a healthy running Palette host cluster under the Tenant Admin Scope. The host clusters deployed under the Tenant Admin scope can be aggregated as a Palette Host Cluster Group. To create a Palette Host Cluster Group:
- Log in to Palette Console as
Tenant Adminand select
Cluster Groupsfrom the right side bar.
- Click on
+New Cluster Groupsto create a new cluster group and provide the following information to the Cluster Group creation wizard:
Parameter Description Group Name A custom name for the cluster group Description (optional) Description of the group, if any Tag (optional) Tags on a cluster group are propagated to the cloud/data center environments.
- Add clusters to the group from the existing tenant scope healthy host clusters.
Cluster Group Configurations: Two types of configurations needs to be done as below:
Host Configuration: The cluster group consists of the ‘n’ number of tenant scope clusters.
|Host Cluster Config||Description|
|Oversubscription (%):||Default is 120%, can be customized|
|Cluster endpoint type:||LB or Ingress|
|Host DNS:||If the cluster endpoint selected is Ingress, then for each selected host cluster provide the Host DNS.|
Note: Please ensure that a wildcard DNS record exists that maps the provided Host Pattern to the NGINX Ingress Controller load balancer for this cluster.
Palette Virtual Cluster Configuration: The configuration for clusters launched into the host clusters. This configuration can be done when the Palette Virtual Clusters are getting launched.
|Palette Virtual Cluster Resource||Default||Minimum Limit|
|CPU (per request)||6||4|
|Memory (per request)||8 GiB||4 GiB|
|Storage (per request)||10 GiB||2 GiB|
- Review the settings and deploy the cluster group. The Palette host cluster group is all set to host the Palette Virtual Cluster.
Once the cluster group is created, the day two operations can be performed form the Palette Cluster Group Settings options by accessing different cluster management activities.
To delete a cluster group, select `Delete Cluster form the Settings and enter the cluster name, and confirm the delete operation.
