Thanks Donald
No I try to build whole my open stack inside VMware esxi , and use VMware ha to provide HA for my open stack so all nodes will be VMs inside VMware , and if one host go down , VMware will relocate the VMs node to another host ,. . .

So I will install esxi on three host servers and configure VMware HA , then create three instance , one for controller , one for storage , and one for network nodes. .

Then I will use the esxi hosts itself as compute nodes . .

This will give me HA for the controller and network and storage nodes also to instances. .

So is this architecture doable???

Are you looking to use KVM inside of VMW?

If not, given your situation, I’d explore VIO (VMWare-integrate OpenStack). It’s free for VMW customers.

Is there someone try to  use VMware HA , for OpenStack deployment  ,

so can I deploy Controller, compute, Network and storage nodes over three ESXI server and use vmware HA as HA for my whole OpenStack environment, instead of building Horizon or Neutron or any OpenStack services HA?
