Introduction

MCP enables you to deploy and manage cloud platforms and their dependencies. These include OpenStack and Kubernetes based clusters.

The deployment can be performed automatically through MCP DriveTrain or using the manual deployment procedures.

The MCP DriveTrain deployment approach is based on the bootstrap automation of the Salt Master node that contains MAAS hardware nodes provisioner as well as on the automation of an MCP cluster deployment using the Jenkins pipelines. This approach significantly reduces your time and eliminates possible human errors.

The manual deployment approach provides the ability to deploy all the components of the cloud solution in a very granular fashion.

The guide also covers the deployment procedures for additional MCP components including OpenContrail, Ceph, StackLight, NFV features.
