Hi Suresh,

Unfortunately, I am not able to install Magnum as I am running into some 
networking issues on the host machine. More specifically, when we install 
Magnum (using OpenStack devstack), it tries to modify the existing network by 
creating bridges & routers, and this somehow breaks the incoming SSH 
connections and I get logged out. Worse, I am no longer able to SSH back into 
the machine & the instance becomes unreachable.

The good news is that I am able to install OpenStack using devstack – with 
essentials such as Heat, Ceilometer. Now I can try to add the Magnum as a 
plugin to this.

Thanks and Regards,
Gourav Shenoy

Hi Gourav,

Just reading through the user guide and the docs, this looks really elegant. If 
it can bring up a Mesos cluster and Marathon within 90 seconds thats really 
promising. Did you happen to check what will be latency in adding few more 
slaves into an existing cluster (magnum cluster-update mycluster replace

Hi dev,

I was reading about OpenStack Magnum here: 
http://docs.openstack.org/developer/magnum/userguide.html#mesos. Magnum 
provides a good set of APIs for managing multiple Container Orchestration 
Engines (COE) like Mesos, Swarm, Kubernetes.

They have a step-by-step guide to setup a Mesos COE cluster using Magnum – 
which internally uses Heat to orchestrate the VMs (which form the cluster), and 
installs Marathon, Docker. A simple way to install OpenStack with Magnum is via 
Devstack. Here is the guide: 

I am trying to build a Mesos-Marathon cluster on EC2 using this approach, and 
also in parallel using Shameera’s Ansible playbook to spin up a similar cluster 
on EC2.

Thanks and Regards,
