After clearing out all the security-related tweaks and configurations and having all of our DC/OS cluster nodes installed with the docker engine, It’s time to create the SSH authorized keys file and establish the trust relationships between the bootstrap node to all other nodes in the cluster.
In part 2 of this series, we will start dive into DC/OS 1.9 installation on top of vSphere. Mesosphere offers few ways to deploy a fully working cluster and since I wanted to see how everything is really connected, I have chosen the advanced installation method. We will start with some Linux related adjustments and the docker engine deployment.
These days, I try to be involved in any Containers, DevOps, Automation, etc. related discussion. Part of my role is to consult my customers around how to architect their containers platform and orchestration tools in Azure. But what happens when you have a chance to do something cool like architecting a solution which involves Mesosphere DC/OS, Azure Container Service, Azure Container Registry, Docker and VMware vSphere?!

Had lot’s of fun, met great friends and eventually decided to move on. The next stop was Amdocs where I started as a Principal Cloud Architect – we will get back to that in a minute.

A few months ago, I got familiar with the brilliant job the folks at CloudPhysics are doing. Knowledge Base Advisor is the latest new feature which will analyze your environment for potential risks and hazards. In large, hybrid and complex environments with lots of components and different hardware vendors to deal with, one of the most important things is to get eyes on all things. But what if the environment is too large for one set of eyes?!
In part 2 of this series, we have created our new “pagefile” and “OS-W2008” datastore storage profiles.
In part 1 of this series I talked about some of the basic pros and cons in moving the VM swapfile and the guest OS virtual memory to a dedicated datastores. Now, let’s start using some of VMware goodies.
