This document describes how to prepare the OnApp Cloud 4.3 version for the deployment. Please review the configuration details in each chapter carefully, as they are vital to the smooth operation of OnApp Cloud.
appliance network - this network provides connectivity for virtual servers
management network - this network provides incoming and outgoing connectivity to the servers. The management network also serves as a route for communication between the Control Panel server and the compute resources for critical OnApp internal traffic.
provisioning network - this network is used to transfer backup and template data between the provisioning server and the primary storage volumes
storage network - this network provides the connection between storage devices (e.g. SANs) and the compute resources
Configure storage. Next, you need to provide your cloud with storage space. There are two storage setup types:
Centralized Storage (SAN) - the primary storage for the cloud
Integrated Storage (OnApp Storage) - a distributed block storage system that allows you to build a highly scalable and resilient SAN using local disks in compute resources
Configure servers. Finally, you need to prepare servers. This section lists the requirements for setting up the Control Panel server, backup server and static and CloudBoot compute resource servers
Each step is explained in the following sections. If you have questions after reading this guide, see Getting Support section.
