ember-csi-operator

Operator to create, configure and manage ember-csi, a multivendor CSI for Kubernetes and OpenShift.

Quick Start

Installing the operator

Operatorhub installation

You can use the operatorhub catalog to deploy the Ember CSI operator if you're using Openshift 4. You'll find the Ember CSI operator in the "Storage" section.

Install the operator

You can also use the latest development version of the operator. To do so, please add another catalog entry and use this instead of the default one:

oc create -f deploy/examples/catalog.yaml
sed -ie 's/community-operators/external-operators/g' deploy/examples/subscription.yaml

You can install the operator using the catalog within the webinterface or using the command line like this:

oc create -f deploy/examples/operatorgroup.yaml
oc create -f deploy/examples/subscription.yaml

You need to wait until the operator has been installed, which might take a few minutes. You can check if the pod is running using the following command:

oc get -l name=ember-csi-operator pod
NAME                                 READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
ember-csi-operator-bb9777478-xz9c8   1/1     Running   0          67s

Deploy and configure a storage backend

You also need a storage backend, for example a lightweight LVM/iscsi pod for development & testing:

oc create -f deploy/examples/lvmbackend.yaml

Next, setup the storage backend using a custom resource file:

oc create -f deploy/examples/lvmdriver.yaml

Now verify that the pods are created and the storage class exists:

oc get pods
NAME                                 READY   STATUS    RESTARTS   AGE
ember-csi-operator-67985dbc7-fb98c   1/1     Running   0          92s
example-controller-0                 4/4     Running   0          83s
example-node-0-tshkq                 2/2     Running   0          83s
lvmiscsi                             1/1     Running   0          3m9s

oc get storageclass
NAME                      PROVISIONER            AGE
example.ember-csi.io-sc   example.ember-csi.io   4m29s

Using the backend for your pods

You're all set now! However, you likely want to test the deployment, so let's create a pvc and pod for testing.

oc create -f deploy/examples/pvc.yaml -f deploy/examples/app.yaml

Once the pvc and pod are up and running, it will look like this:

oc describe pods my-csi-app | tail

Normal  Started                 2s    kubelet, node2.example.com  Started container

Looking inside the container you will notice that the provided volume has been mounted:

oc exec -it my-csi-app -- df -h /data
/var/lib/ember-csi/vols/e1e57b59-f290-408f-87fa-540509bbe8b5 975.9M      2.5M    906.2M   0% /data

Testing

There is also a script that uses Code Ready Containers and executes all of the above commands, making it easy to start testing:

deploy/examples/crclvm.sh

Next steps

Documentation is still a work in progress, but have a look into docs/README.md for further infos.
