Recently, the Advanced Technology Group at HP embarked on a project to demonstrate a clustered Docker solution. The goal was to build a proof-of-concept that used exciting new technologies on top of Debian, the Linux distribution of choice used for HP Helion. Our group decided that CoreOS was an emerging Linux distribution that used a promising architecture, and that we would build CoreOS components, or as we thought of it “CoreOS DNA”, on top of Debian.
The components we used for a clustered Docker solution for our POC were:
Using HP’s Public Cloud, built from OpenStack, we constructed a compute virtual machine image using Ansible to deploy the virtual machine, as well as install and configure each of these components to work in a five-node cluster.
This talk will cover exactly how we did this, including:
How we used Ansible to:
ELK Stack Demo application:
This talk will conclude with a question and answer session.
