The Dell EMC Validated Solutions Organization is pleased to introduce the jointly engineered Dell EMC Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Solution based on Red Hat OpenStack Platform (OSP) 9, available in early November.
This offering continues to deliver on our commitment to be first to market with Red Hat OpenStack software releases and to provide an enterprise-capable, highly flexible and simple to deploy OpenStack solution that captures and leverages the innovation created in the OpenStack eco-system. In this release, we are enhancing deployment automation, automating in-service updates and providing options to implement containers as a service with Red Hat OpenShift 3.3, which is based on Kubernetes and Docker.
Additionally, Red Hat CloudForms 4.2 has been validated as an optional extension to provide multi-cloud management and usage metering for show back/chargeback. Dell EMC Deployment Guides will be available for rapid deployment of OpenShift and CloudForms. Visit Red Hat OpenStack Cloud Solutions at Dell Tech Center for the latest updates.
We use an automated test harness that extends the OpenStack Tempest toolset to help ensure that each OpenStack component, alone and in enterprise-class combinations, can be deployed with confidence. Open source advocates will appreciate that all enhanced enablement tools and utilities created by Dell EMC and Red Hat to support system testing and validation have been released in public open repositories such as GitHub under the Apache2 license. This release, like previous solution releases, is fully open source and free from any form of proprietary code.
This latest release uses Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.2 and is powered with the latest generation of Dell EMC PowerEdge R430, R630, R730 and R730xd servers and Networking. The core architecture is documented in a reference architecture and designed to scale from less than half a rack to a three-rack cloud infrastructure solution capable of supporting up to 2,500 VM instances or up to 8,000 container instances.
