Great information in HPE – Red Hat blog. Even more available at Red Hat Summit.

A new blog discusses how to automate and scale Red Hat OpenShift deployment with HPE Synergy. The solution uses the HPE Synergy Composable Infrastructure to enable optimized infrastructure deployment and simplifies manageability using HPE of universe.jpgSimplified installation is a result when used in conjunction with Red Hat Ansible Tower. This accelerates Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform deployment and simplifies updates. HPE 3PAR or HPE Nimble Storage provide enterprise grade persistent storage providing necessary data management, High Availability and storage efficiency. 



Solution highlights include:

  • HPE Synergy Composer and HPE Synergy Image Streamer are used to create deployment plans for rapid deployment of bare metal Red Hat OpenShift infrastructure. The fluid resource pools and software-defined intelligence of HPE Synergy allow administrators to rapidly compose any configuration required, reducing deployment time from hours or days down to minutes. The solution deploys Red Hat OpenShift 3.10 as a combination of virtual and physical resources. The OpenShift master, etcd, and load balancers are deployed as virtual machines running on three HPE Synergy 480 Gen10 Compute Modules running Red Hat Virtualization Host 4.2 (RHVH) and managed by Red Hat Virtualization Manager (RHV-M). Infrastructure nodes are deployed as either virtual machines or as a component of bare metal Red Hat OpenShift worker nodes. Worker nodes are deployed on bare metal on six HPE Synergy 480 Gen10 Compute Modules running Red Hat Enterprise Linux or may be configured as virtual machines.
  • For ephemeral and persistent container volumes, customers can choose from either fibre channel attached HPE 3PAR StoreServ storage or iSCSI based HPE Nimble storage.
  • By utilizing HPE Synergy, the non-storage networks within the solution are able to traverse the Synergy infrastructure in an east-west fashion across high speed, low latency links both within and between HPE Virtual Connect Modules. In particular, communication between the core OpenShift management pieces remains within the HPE Synergy Frames.
