Create and operate managed clusters

Note

This tutorial applies only to the Container Cloud web UI users with the writer access role assigned by the Infrastructure Operator. To add a bare metal host, the operator access role is also required.

After you deploy the Mirantis Container Cloud management cluster, you can start creating managed clusters that will be based on the same cloud provider type that you have for the management or regional cluster: OpenStack, AWS, bare metal, VMware vSphere, Microsoft Azure, or Equinix Metal.

The deployment procedure is performed using the Container Cloud web UI and comprises the following steps:

  1. For a baremetal-based managed cluster, create and configure bare metal hosts with corresponding labels for machines such as worker, manager, or storage.

  2. Create an initial cluster configuration depending on the provider type.

  3. Add the required amount of machines with the corresponding configuration to the managed cluster.

  4. For a baremetal-based or Equinix Metal based managed cluster, add a Ceph cluster.

Note

The Container Cloud web UI communicates with Keycloak to authenticate users. Keycloak is exposed using HTTPS with self-signed TLS certificates that are not trusted by web browsers.

To use your own TLS certificates for Keycloak, refer to Configure TLS certificates for management cluster applications.
