OpenStack High Availability Guide

OpenStack High Availability Guide

Abstract

This guide describes how to install and configure OpenStack for high availability. It supplements the Installation Tutorials and Guides and assumes that you are familiar with the material in those guides.

Important

This guide was last updated as of the Ocata release, documenting the OpenStack Ocata, Newton, and Mitaka releases. It may not apply to EOL releases Kilo and Liberty.

We advise that you read this at your own discretion when planning on your OpenStack cloud.

This guide is intended as advice only.

The OpenStack HA team is based on voluntary contributions from the OpenStack community. You can contact the HA community directly in the #openstack-ha channel on Freenode IRC, or by sending mail to the openstack-dev or openstack-doc mailing list with the [HA] prefix in the subject header.

The OpenStack HA community holds weekly IRC meetings to discuss a range of topics relating to HA in OpenStack. Everyone interested is encouraged to attend. The logs of all previous meetings are available to read.
