The Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Red Hat OpenStack Platform is a validated solution that has been jointly designed and bundled by Dell EMC and Red Hat to help organizations to define, architect, and deploy a highly reliable, optimized, and scalable OpenStack cloud solution. This co-engineered and fully validated architecture guide details the Dell EMC Ready Bundle for Red Hat OpenStack Platform Release 10.1, and encompasses software, hardware, and integration of the solution components. With this architecture, Dell EMC and Red Hat also provide the coordinated services and support that customers need to stand up production-ready OpenStack clusters.

This architecture guide is based on the PowerEdge R-series 14G rack servers.  A separate architecture guide is available for the PowerEdge FX-series 13G modular servers.

This design of this solution is based on the OpenStack release Newton, and the Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 (OSP 10). The architecture document provides prescriptive guidance and recommendations for:

  • Compute, Infrastructure, and storage nodes
  • Networking design
  • Software components
  • Various system configurations and options

In addition to this reference architecture guide, please see the Resources section of the Dell TechCenter cloud community for additional documents and technical guides that describe the numerous extensions and enhancements to the core architecture.
