The fastest path to running Infinispan on OpenShift!

Creating an Infinispan Server cluster in OpenShift has never been easier! We’ve just given the OpenShift templates for Infinispan server their biggest makeover yet which should help both Infinispan and OpenShift users:

The repository has been simplified and flattened out to only leave essential information. Minishift is the preferred way to get started with Infinispan and OpenShift, so we’ve tailored the instructions for this set up.

OpenShift templates are now YAML based which is less verbose, but more importantly, allows Infinispan Server XML configuration to be shown as-is. This makes it easier to directly modify the XML in the template itself.

The fastest way to get started with Infinispan and OpenShift is to simply fire up Minishift, set a profile, checkout our Infinipan OpenShift repository and then call:

oc create -f infinispan-ephemeral.yaml oc new-app infinispan-ephemeral

These two simple steps will get you a single node Infinispan Server running! A more detailed getting started guide can be found in the repository’s README file.

Go and try it out and let us know what you think. You can find us on this Zulip chat :)

Cheers, Galder
