You can add compute clusters to your VMware Integrated OpenStack deployment to increase CPU capacity.

Prerequisites

Create a cluster to be consumed by the compute cluster that you want to add.

If you want to add compute clusters from a separate compute vCenter Server instance, the following restrictions apply:

  • You must deploy VMware Integrated OpenStack in HA mode with NSX-T networking. Other deployment and networking modes do not support adding compute vCenter Server instances.

  • You cannot add compute clusters from separate compute vCenter Server instances in the same availability zone.

Procedure

  1. In the vSphere Web Client, select Home > VMware Integrated OpenStack.
  2. Open the Manage tab.
  3. If you want to add compute clusters from a separate vCenter Server instance, first add the instance to your deployment.
    1. Select the Compute vCenter Server tab.
    2. Click the Add (plus sign) icon at the top left of the panel.
    3. Enter the FQDN of the vCenter Server instance and administrator credentials and click OK.
  4. Select the Nova Compute tab.
  5. Click the Add (plus sign) icon at the top left of the panel.
  6. Select the vCenter Server instance and availability zone for the compute cluster that you want to add and click Next.
  7. Select the cluster that you created for the compute cluster and click Next.

    The cluster you select must contain at least one host.

  8. Select one or more datastores for the compute cluster to consume and click Next.
  9. Select the management virtual machine and desired datastore and click Next.
  10. Review the proposed configuration and click Finish.

Results

The capacity of your deployment increases accordingly with the size of the additional compute cluster.
