Upsilon on a OpenShift 3 environment

Upsilon can be deployed quite easily on top of OpenShift 3 - all it’s services dockerized/containerized. You can scale-out of the OpenShift environment and deploy upsilon-drone and other services outside too.

This article assumes you have a OpenShift 3 environment up and running, and have a fairly reasonable quota.

Create a OpenShift project for Upsilon

Call it anything you like!

create project

Upload the Upsilon application template to OpenShift

There is a pre-built Upsilon application template for OpenShift, stored in a GitHub repository called upsilon-on-openshift.

On your local workstation, clone this repository: user@host$: mkdir upsilon-sandbox && cd upsilon-sandbox
user@host$: git clone
user@host$: cd upsilon-on-openshift
Login to OpenShift using the command line tool and upload the application template. user@host$: oc new-project upsilon-on-openshift
user@host$: oc status
In project Upsilon on OpenShift (upsilon-on-openshift) on server

You have no services, deployment configs, or build configs.
Run 'oc new-app' to create an application.
user@host$: oc create -f upsilon-on-openshift.yaml

The application template should complete successfully, and you should be able to browse and find Upsilon in the OpenShift catalog;

add to project

deploy from catalog

You can change some of the deployment options before starting the deployment, but the defaults are fine.

Import the schema and the initial database

From this overview screen, you’ll want to wait for the upsilon-web pod to come up sucessfully. This may take a couple of minutes.

Create the initial database using the create-database script.

user@host$: cd /usr/share/upsilon-database/mysql/
user@host$: ./create-database

Go to the web application

Click on the upsilon-web route to upsilon-web-installer.
