Hi guys , i'm a process to start a big internal cloud in my company , i've been study openstack and doing some labs. I find there's a big lack of documentation regarding openstack controller in HA mode. There's design considerations , high level documents , but nothing that teaches step by step on how to actually do it. Is there anyone that can guide me to such document ??? i'm deploying icehouse based on redhat (it could be centOS too). Is there any tool that could deploy controllers in HA mode?

please help ~

Any specific reason why you are deploying Icehouse? You should really consider Juno or Kilo.

I agree that the HA documentation is not complete in any way. As load balancer I recommend using either Haproxy or Keepalived (or both with Haproxy as balancer and Keepalived for VRRP with backup Haproxy).
