QuickStart: Container Cloud on VMware vSphere

Caution

This Bootstrap v1 procedure is deprecated since Container Cloud 2.25.0 for the sake of Bootstrap v2. For details, see Deployment Guide: Deploy Container Cloud using Boostrap v2.

We are currently updating this QuickStart guide to align with the Bootstrap v2 procedure and plan to release the revised version in one of the following Container Cloud releases.

Using this QuickStart tutorial, you can deploy a Mirantis Container Cloud VMware vSphere-based management cluster containing 3 control plane nodes. This cluster will run the public API and the web UI. Using the Container Cloud web UI, you can deploy managed clusters that run Mirantis Kubernetes Engine.

The following diagram illustrates the deployment overview of a Container Cloud vSphere-based management cluster:

Note

You can deploy vSphere-based clusters on CentOS. Support of this operating system is available as Technology Preview. Use it for testing and evaluation purposes only.

Deployment of a Container Cloud cluster that is based on different operating systems, such as RHEL and CentOS or CentOS and Ubuntu, is not supported.
