Deploying Distributed Compute Nodes with Separate Heat Stacks

Red Hat OpenStack Platform 16.1-Beta

Using separate heat stacks to manage your Red Hat Openstack Platform

OpenStack Documentation Team

Abstract

You can deploy Red Hat OpenStack Platform with separate heat stacks to isolate the management operations that director performs. You can use this technique to scale Compute nodes without updating the Controller nodes, to deploy multiple Red Hat Ceph Storage clusters, or in distributed compute node (DCN) sites to reduce network and management dependency on the central data center. This guide describes how to configure separate heat stacks to manage different node types in a Red Hat OpenStack Platform deployment.
