RE: OpenShift HA/Data Tier scaling Questions

Hi Aaron,


Take a look at this thread:



If you want to use the Routing SPI, I hope it will help you.

When you say "OpenShift", which OpenShift project are you interested in using - Origin, Online, or Enterprise?


I'm currently using Origin, but this might change over time.

Yes - the hooks are there for manual implementation, and I believe someone's working on reference implementations including BigIP. Are you looking at using

Have a look at https://github.com/openshift/openshift-pep/blob/master/openshift-pep-005-available-web.md


I've read through this but couldn't find any documentation as far as APIs (or the SPI that exists now).

That is something we're working on, but not ready for use yet.


I'm interested in helping with this, how can I get involved? Could you tell me more about the proposed architecture? Is there a PEP out there somewhere?

Setting different gear sizes within the same application is ready in Origin master, I believe - look for that capability to roll out shortly.


Fantastic. I'll be on the lookout.  

I doubt OpenShift is going to be a good place to locate large, scalable, HA databases for a while yet. For your project it would probably be best to handle the database separately and point to the external DB(s) with environment variable(s).  


I'm also looking at openstack trove, but as I understand it trove needs some engineering to handle nosql databases. I'm wondering if that engineering time would be better spent put into openshift.
