Tungsten Fabric cluster

All services of Tungsten Fabric are delivered as separate containers, which are deployed by the Tungsten Fabric Operator (TFO). Each container has an INI-based configuration file that is available on the host system. The configuration file is generated automatically upon the container start and is based on environment variables provided by the TFO through Kubernetes ConfigMaps.

The main Tungsten Fabric containers run with the host network as DeploymentSet, without using the Kubernetes networking layer. The services listen directly on the host network interface.

The following diagram describes the minimum production installation of Tungsten Fabric with a Mirantis OpenStack for Kubernetes (MOSK) deployment.


For the details about the Tungsten Fabric services included in MOSK deployments and the types of traffic and traffic flow directions, see the subsections below.
