I'm worried that you may be overstating the needs of a typical cloud. The undercloud needs to be able to reach a state of availability when you need to boot boxes. Even if you are doing CD and _constantly_ rebooting boxes, you can take your undercloud down for an hour, as long as it can be brought back up for emergencies. However, Ironic has already been designed this way. I believe that Ironic has a nice dynamic hash ring of server ownership, and if you mark a conductor down, the other conductors will assume ownership of the machines that it was holding. So the path to making this HA is basically "add one more undercloud server." Ironic experts, please tell me this is true, and not just something I inserted into my own distorted version of reality to help me sleep at night. _______________________________________________ OpenStack-dev mailing list OpenStackemail@example.com http://lists.openstack.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/openstack-dev
