Deploy Mayastor

Overview

Before deploying and using Mayastor please consult the Known Issues section of this guide.
In this Quickstart guide we demonstrate deploying Mayastor by using the Kubernetes manifest files provided within the project's repositories (control plane components, data plane components). These repositories are configured for the GitFlow release model, wherein the master branch contains official releases. By extension, the head of the master branch represents the latest official release. Previous releases are identifiable by their annotated git tags.
The steps and commands which follow are intended only for use with, and have only be tested against, the latest release for version 1.x. Earlier releases or development versions may require a modified or different installation process and will require that the manifest files appropriate to that specific release are used. These are available in the repositories named above - use the files from the tagged commit appropriate to the release you wish to deploy.

Create Mayastor Application Resources

Namespace

Command (GitHub Latest)
kubectl create namespace mayastor

RBAC Resources

Command (GitHub Latest)
Expected Output
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor-control-plane/v1.0.4/deploy/operator-rbac.yaml
serviceaccount/mayastor-service-account created
clusterrole.rbac.authorization.k8s.io/mayastor-cluster-role created
clusterrolebinding.rbac.authorization.k8s.io/mayastor-cluster-role-binding created

Custom Resource Definitions

Command (GitHub Latest)
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor-control-plane/v1.0.4/deploy/mayastorpoolcrd.yaml

Deploy Mayastor Dependencies

NATS

Mayastor uses NATS, an Open Source messaging system, as an event bus for some aspects of control plane operations.
Command (GitHub Latest)
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor/v1.0.4/deploy/nats-deployment.yaml
Verify that the deployment of the NATS application to the cluster was successful. Within the mayastor namespace ensure that there are 3 replicas with the name "nats-x", and with a reported status of "Running".
Command
Example Output
kubectl -n mayastor get pods --selector=app=nats
NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE
nats-0 2/2 Running 0 50s
nats-1 2/2 Running 0 30s
nats-2 2/2 Running 0 10s

etcd

Mayastor uses etcd, a distributed, reliable key-value store, to persist configuration. The steps described below deploy a dedicated, clustered etcd instance for Mayastor's own use. This is the only configuration supported by this release.
To deploy the PersistentVolumes that will be used by the etcd in the next step, execute:
Command (GitHub Latest)
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor/v1.0.4/deploy/etcd/storage/localpv.yaml
Command (GitHub Latest)
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor/v1.0.4/deploy/etcd/statefulset.yaml
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor/v1.0.4/deploy/etcd/svc.yaml
kubectl apply -f https://raw.githubusercontent.com/openebs/mayastor/v1.0.4/deploy/etcd/svc-headless.yaml
Verify that the deployment of etcd to the cluster was successful. Within the mayastor namespace there should be 3 replicas with a name of the form "mayastor-etcd-" and with a reported status of "Running".
Command
Example Output
kubectl -n mayastor get pods --selector=app.kubernetes.io/name=etcd
NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE
mayastor-etcd-0 1/1 Running 0 70m
mayastor-etcd-1 1/1 Running 0 70m
mayastor-etcd-2 1/1 Running 0 70m
