Avere vFXT for Azure - 部署概述Avere vFXT for Azure - deployment overview

本文概述启动并运行 Avere vFXT for Azure 群集所要执行的步骤。This article gives an overview of the steps needed to get an Avere vFXT for Azure cluster up and running.

在从 Azure 市场创建 vFXT 群集之前和之后,需要执行多个任务。Several tasks are needed before and after you create the vFXT cluster from the Azure Marketplace. 对自始至终的整个过程有个明确的认识将有助于规划所要完成的工作。Having a clear sense of the start-to-finish process will help you scope the effort needed.

部署步骤Deployment steps

规划系统后,可以开始创建 Avere vFXT 群集。After planning your system, you can begin to create your Avere vFXT cluster.

Azure 市场中的 Azure 资源管理器模板会收集必需的信息并自动部署整个群集。An Azure Resource Manager template in the Azure Marketplace collects the necessary information and automatically deploys the entire cluster.

vFXT 群集启动并运行后,需要知道如何将客户端连接到该群集,如有必要,还需要知道如何将数据移到新的 Blob 存储容器。After the vFXT cluster is up and running, you will want to know how to connect clients to it and, if necessary, how to move your data to the new Blob storage container.

下面是所有步骤的概述。Here is an overview of all of the steps.

  1. 配置先决条件Configure prerequisites

    在创建 VM 之前,必须创建 Avere vFXT 项目的新订阅、配置订阅所有权、检查配额并根据需要请求提高配额,并接受 Avere vFXT 软件的使用条款。Before creating a VM, you must create a new subscription for the Avere vFXT project, configure subscription ownership, check quotas and request an increase if needed, and accept terms for using the Avere vFXT software. 有关详细说明,请参阅准备创建 Avere vFXTRead Prepare to create the Avere vFXT for detailed instructions.

  2. 创建 Avere vFXT 群集Create the Avere vFXT cluster

    使用 Azure 市场创建 Avere vFXT for Azure 群集。Use the Azure Marketplace to create the Avere vFXT for Azure cluster. 模板将收集所需的信息并执行脚本来创建最终产品。A template collects the required information and executes scripts to create the final product.

    群集创建涉及以下步骤,所有这些步骤都是通过市场模板执行的:Cluster creation involves these steps, which are all done by the marketplace template:

    • 创建新的网络基础结构和资源组(如果需要)Creating new network infrastructure and resource groups, if needed

    • 创建群集控制器Creating a cluster controller

      群集控制器是驻留在 Avere vFXT 群集所在的同一虚拟网络中的简单 VM,它具有创建和管理群集时所需的自定义软件。The cluster controller is a simple VM that resides in the same virtual network as the Avere vFXT cluster and has the custom software needed to create and manage the cluster. 该控制器可创建 vFXT 节点并组建群集,此外,还提供一个命令行接口,用于在群集的整个生存期内对其进行管理。The controller creates the vFXT nodes and forms the cluster, and it also provides a command-line interface to manage the cluster during its lifetime.

      如果在部署期间创建新的 vnet,请在控制器将具有一个公共 IP 地址。If you create a new vnet during the deployment, your controller will have a public IP address. 这意味着该控制器可用作跳转主机连接到 vnet 的外部从群集。This means the controller can serve as a jump host for connecting to the cluster from outside the vnet.

    • 创建群集节点 VMCreating the cluster node VMs

    • 配置群集节点 Vm 来形成群集Configuring the cluster node VMs to form the cluster

    • (可选)创建新的 Blob 容器并将其配置为群集的后端存储Optionally, creating a new Blob container and configuring it as back-end storage for the cluster

  3. 配置群集Configure the cluster

    连接到 Avere vFXT 配置接口(Avere 控制面板)以自定义群集的设置。Connect to the Avere vFXT configuration interface (Avere Control Panel) to customize the cluster's settings. 选择启用监视支持;如果使用本地数据中心,请添加存储系统。Opt in for support monitoring, and add your storage system if you are using an on-premises data center.

  4. 装载客户端Mount clients

    遵循装载 Avere vFXT 群集中的指导原则来了解负载均衡,以及客户端计算机应如何装载群集。Follow the guidelines in Mount the Avere vFXT cluster to learn about load balancing and how client machines should mount the cluster.

  5. 添加数据(如果需要)Add data (if needed)

    由于 Avere vFXT 是可缩放的多客户端缓存,将数据移到新后端存储容器的最佳方式是使用多客户端多线程文件复制策略。Because the Avere vFXT is a scalable multi-client cache, the best way to move data to a new back-end storage container is with multi-client, multithreaded file copy strategy. 有关详细信息,请参阅将数据移到 vFXT 群集Read Moving data to the vFXT cluster for details.
