First OpenShift Operator pre-release for Infinispan is here!
Infinispan Operator is a new method of packaging, deploying and managing Infinispan clusters on OpenShift. You can think of the Infinispan Operator as the runtime that manages Infinispan clusters on OpenShift.
We’ve just done our first Infinispan Operator pre-release, version 0.1.0, which allows you to easily boot up an Infinispan cluster on OpenShift.
Using the operator is as simple as installing the Infinispan Operator (requires admin access) on OpenShift, and then create a YAML descriptor that defines the Infinispan cluster. The example below shows how to create a 3-node Infinispan cluster:
And then call:
$ oc apply -f example-infinispan.yaml
A more detailed tutorial on using the Infinispan Operator can be found here. We highly recommend you give it a go and let us know what you think.
Over the next few versions we’ll be adding more features that make the most of the capabilities the Operator framework offers to automatically manage the health and status of running Infinispan clusters.
Please also note that as we work towards the 1.0 release, some things might change :)
