Kayobe enables deployment of containerised OpenStack to bare metal.
Containers offer a compelling solution for isolating OpenStack services, but running the control plane on an orchestrator such as Kubernetes or Docker Swarm adds significant complexity and operational overheads.
The hosts in an OpenStack control plane must somehow be provisioned, but deploying a secondary OpenStack cloud to do this seems like overkill.
Kayobe stands on the shoulders of giants:
OpenStack bifrost discovers and provisions the cloud
OpenStack kolla builds container images for OpenStack services
OpenStack kolla-ansible delivers painless deployment and upgrade of containerised OpenStack services
To this solid base, kayobe adds:
Configuration of cloud host OS & flexible networking
Management of physical network devices
A friendly openstack-like CLI
All this and more, automated from top to bottom using Ansible.
Heavily automated using Ansible
kayobe Command Line Interface (CLI) for cloud operators
Deployment of a seed VM used to manage the OpenStack control plane
Configuration of physical network infrastructure
Discovery, introspection and provisioning of control plane hardware using OpenStack bifrost
Deployment of an OpenStack control plane using OpenStack kolla-ansible
Discovery, introspection and provisioning of bare metal compute hosts using OpenStack ironic and ironic inspector
Virtualised compute using OpenStack nova
Containerised workloads on bare metal using OpenStack magnum
Big data on bare metal using OpenStack sahara
Control plane monitoring using Prometheus and Grafana.
Log aggregation using OpenSearch and OpenSearch Dashboards.
