Create and operate a managed cluster

Create and operate a managed cluster

Note

This tutorial applies only to the Docker Enterprise 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 Docker Enterprise (DE) 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 cluster: OpenStack, AWS, or bare metal.

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

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

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

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

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