Creating the compute cluster

To create the compute cluster, open the Compute screen, click Create compute cluster, and do the following in the Configure compute cluster window:

  1. In the Nodes section, select nodes to add to the compute cluster. The network state of each selected node should be Configured, if you followed the instructions in Configuring networks. Click Next.
  2. In the Physical network section, you can enable IP address management if you have a pool of IP addresses that you can use. It is also necessary for virtual routers, floating public IP addresses, and network load balancers. Otherwise, you can leave IP address management disabled. Select an infrastructure network to connect the physical network to and its type: select VLAN and specify a VLAN ID to create a VLAN-based network, or select Untagged to create a flat physical network. If required, change the default MTU value for the network. Click Next.
  3. In the Add-on services section, you can install additional services if you want to evaluate them as well. Or you can do it later, as described in the Administrator Guide. Click Next.
  4. In the Storage policy section, you can change the automatically selected redundancy mode, storage tier, and failure domain for the default policy that will be created for the compute cluster. Click Next.
  5. On the Summary step, review the configuration, and then click Create cluster.

You can monitor compute cluster deployment on the Compute screen.
