Hi, I have a question regarding multi-regions in SOC. I'm studying the docs for SOC 7 and stumbled upon the question, how to deploy a multi-region cloud. That question seems to have no answer yet, so I searched the web and found this line in the release notes of SOC 5:

The region used for the OpenStack endpoints can be configured, leading the way to multi-region support.

And then there's the SOC 7 admin guide (https://www.suse.com/documentation/suse-openstack-cloud-7/singlehtml/book_cloud_admin/book_cloud_admin.html) with this little piece of information:


Also, OpenStack supports multiple regions for scalability. For simplicity, this guide uses the management network for all endpoint types and the default RegionOne region.

I know how to deploy services manually (and create respective endpoints with the required regions), but I don't find anything on how to deploy multiple regions in SOC. The keystone barclamp contains one "region" value, and that is deployed to all services. Is my understanding correct or am I missing something?

Thanks for any input!

Regards,
Eugen

Hi Eugen,

Let me see if I can find out something for you.

Currently if you change the region, it will remove the one that is
registered.
This was reported as a bug, and appears to be fixed, but not yet released
in any official update yet it seems.

Do you have a use case currently where you need this Multi Region support
for ? If so, I guess it would be best if you could open a SR so we can get
you an official PTF.

Does that answer your question ?

Thanks
Hans

PS: Say hi to Jens from me ;-)

Hans, thank you very much for the quick response!

He says "thanks" ;-)

We don't have a use case at the moment, but it's good to know that there's a solution available.

Thanks again!
