I am exploring ways to deploy a multi-site OpenStack deployment with controllers at one site and with multiple geographically located compute and storage nodes. For e.g: Site-1: 3 Controllers, some computes and storage Site-2: Compute, Storage Site-3: Compute, Storage ..and so on.
Considering this as a theoretical viable solution, what are some of the areas one should focus to have this up and running?

Best Regards, Purnendu Ghosh

High-capacity, low-latency network connections between the sites.

You may have to set up single L2 networks across the sites, e.g. overlays like VXLAN. I don’t know to what extent OpenStack can cope with nodes connected to separate networks.
