Deploying a pattern across multiple PureApplication Software VLANs

PureApplication System supports the deployment of your pattern instance across multiple cloud groups using externally managed deployments. You can use this as a way to achieve physical separation of the virtual machines in your deployment onto different compute nodes, and also to achieve network separation of the tiers into different VLANs.

PureApplication Software does not currently support multi-cloud deployments, so in order to achieve physical separation of your workload tiers you must deploy them as separate patterns. However, PureApplication Software does support network separation of the virtual machines of a single pattern instance by selecting different IP groups for each virtual machine.

In order to select different IP groups for each virtual machine, you must click the Prepare to Deploy button instead of the Quick Deploy button when deploying your pattern:

prepare-to-deploy

The next screen will present you with a list of the virtual machines in your deployment. If you hover your mouse over any of the virtual machines, you will see details of the network interfaces and, if applicable, storage volumes:

distribute

Click on the pencil icon to bring up a dialog that allows you to configure the network interfaces and storage. In this dialog you can select any of the IP groups that are enabled in your environment profile:

ipgroup

Once you have selected the IP groups for each set of virtual machines, you can click Deploy to complete the deployment of the pattern.
