This document provides an overview of the Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Red Hat OpenStack Platform, an integrated hardware and software solution for OpenStack cloud that has been jointly designed and validated by Dell EMC and Red Hat. The Ready Bundle enables organizations to easily and rapidly deploy a highly reliable, optimized, and scalable Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud solution.

The Ready Bundle architecture is built on Dell EMC PowerEdge servers for the controller, compute, and storage nodes, with Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Ceph Storage software.
