Deploy an additional regional cluster (optional)

Unsupported since 2.25.0

Caution

Regional clusters are unsupported since Container Cloud 2.25.0. Mirantis does not perform functional integration testing of the feature and intends to remove the related code in Container Cloud 2.26.0. If you still require this feature, contact Mirantis support for further information.

After you bootstrap a management cluster of the required cloud provider type, you can optionally deploy an additional regional cluster of the same or different provider type. For details about regions, see Container Cloud regions.

Perform this procedure if you wish to operate managed clusters across clouds from a single Mirantis Container Cloud management plane.

Caution

A regional cluster requires access to the management cluster.

Multi-regional deployment enables you to create managed clusters of several provider types using one management cluster. For example, you can bootstrap a vSphere-based management cluster and deploy an OpenStack-based regional cluster on this management cluster. Such cluster enables creation of OpenStack-based and vSphere-based managed clusters with Kubernetes deployments.

Note

If the bootstrap node for deployment of an additional regional cluster is not the same where you bootstrapped the management cluster, first prepare the bootstrap as described in Configure the bootstrap node.
