Tenant Scope - DevOps Persona

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.

Cluster Groups

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:

System Scope

  • Palette provides a default cluster group called beehive at the system scope in the us-east region.

Tenant Scope

Create Your Cluster Group (Tenant Scope)

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:

  1. Log in to Palette Console as Tenant Admin and select Cluster Groups from the right side bar.
  1. Click on +New Cluster Groups to create a new cluster group and provide the following information to the Cluster Group creation wizard:
  • Basic Information:

    Group NameA 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 ā€˜nā€™ number of tenant scope clusters.

Host Cluster ConfigDescription
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 DefaultMinimum Limit
CPU (per request)64
Memory (per request)8 GiB4 GiB
Storage (per request)10 GiB2 GiB
  1. Review the settings and deploy the cluster group. The Palette host cluster group is all set to host the Palette Virtual Cluster.

Manage your Cluster Group

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.

Delete your Cluster Group

To delete a cluster group, select `Delete Cluster form the Settings and enter the cluster name, and confirm the delete operation.
