Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.10 runs on VMware Cloud Foundation 4.5
For many years, Red Hat and VMware have worked together as technology partners to bring scale, speed, and agility to meet developer needs while maintaining the security features and visibility demanded by IT operations. Recently, VMware Cloud Foundation 4.5 was used to test and validate Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.10. You may get the reference architecture paper created by VMware and Red Hat here.
The audience will be able to grasp the architecture of Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform’s interaction with VMware Cloud Foundation at a high level. For Red Hat OpenShift, lifecycle management is provided by VMware Cloud Foundation Manager, while dependable, efficient, and adaptable storage is offered by vSAN. Additionally, NSX Data Center provides Red Hat OpenShift with a fine-grained, safe, and fast virtual networking infrastructure. In order to provide the end user customer with a consolidated and highly scalable solution for running Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform with VMware Cloud Foundation, vSphere DRS and vSphere HA also make advantage of efficient resource usage and high availability.
You can have all the advantages of a modern private cloud built on the proven VMware Software-Defined Data Center architecture by running Red Hat OpenShift on VMware Cloud Foundation:
- A reliable method for replicating standardized infrastructure
- Modern automation reduces human error and increases administrative productivity.
- Scalability and agility of the cloud
- VMware NSX is integrated with VMware.
- vSANTM integration with VMware
The customer will also be able to benefit from VMware vSphere capabilities including Distributed Resource SchedulerTM (DRS), vSphere HA, and vSphere vMotion®.
At its core, VMware Cloud Foundation blends automation with a standardized and approachable infrastructure approach, giving IT Operations the infrastructure agility required to support developers by offering infrastructure that developers can exploit quickly and effectively. The operating system, Kubernetes, and cluster services, as well as cloud-based apps and the container stack, can all be managed and upgraded automatically using the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
