Deploy an additional regional cluster (optional)

Deploy an additional regional cluster (optional)

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

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

Note

The integration of baremetal-based support for deploying additional regional clusters is in the final development stage and will be announced separately in one of the upcoming Mirantis Container Cloud releases.

This section describes how to deploy an additional OpenStack, AWS, or VMWare vSphere-based regional cluster on an existing management cluster.
