Deploying Mobility Master in the cloud (Google Cloud Platform or AWS?)

Has anybody here deployed a virtual Mobility Master to a VPS or cloud service (e.g. Google Cloud Platform or AWS)?

 

If so, are you able to share any experiencds or steps?

 

I did ask HPE directly, and they said it's not supported officially.

Also wondering about this.

I know you can migrate Hyper-V to AWS.


Are setup is 2 x Mobility Masters on separate Hyper-V hosts so would love to test a migration using the secondary MM.


Does anyone know if you need to change the IP of the Mobility Master if this means you need to re-add all controllers or can you just change the IP they are pointing to for the MM?

 

Thanks

Lack of publuc cloud support is the detriment of Aruba.

So i have spent some time investing and found the following;

 

- AWS does not support Nest VM, so need dedicated server which is very expensive

- GCP does support Nested VM, and tried it but could not get the MM to successfuly boot up.

- Have not tried Azure.

 

I know thats not much of help..

Why does it require a Nested VM for deployment in cloud?

Becuase the server that you are installing it on in the cloud is a VM itself..

You can do that in AWS I believe? One of the guys in my team is telling me so and he works heavily with AWS

You can if you purchase a dedicated server, like an i3.metal, but thats very expensive.

 

But if you try to run KVM on a T3 or anthing a like it will fail.

A simpel command like "kvm-ok" will tell u this.

 

Ask your friend how they are running KVM, VMWare or HyperV on AWS, i will be very curious...

AWS is running KVM - it doesn't need to run on anything else

Of coruse AWS is running on KVM, as a backend.

But to run ArubaOS VM, you need it to run it as a VM - aka qcow2, which means "Nested Virtualisation" and only certain CPU's support this, to which GCP is one provider that has some insatced that does.

 

AWS does not support Nested VM.

I forgot to add, also tried migrating a successfully running MM on VMWare to AWS, via VMDK, and it failed to boot after converting & in AWS.

I believe this is because the Operating System needs to be supported by AWS, and ArubaOS is not one of them.

 

Reason why i took the nested VM path.

 

Finally have not tried AWS on VMWare public cloud, but feel if it was to work will work there.
