This reference architecture describes how to deploy and manage Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform on Amazon Web Services. The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform allows for specific configuration parameters to be set to take full advantage of cloud specific features. The document will explain both the AWS and OpenShift components used for a successful installation and deployment. Also, steps and links to a code base will be provided to allow for the installation of the exact reference architecture environment using an Amazon Web Services account.
The reference architecture also contains instructions for deploying Container-Native and Container-Ready Storage using Red Hat Gluster Storage. CNS and CRS allow for persistent storage to be used for applications across availability zones as well as additional access modes of RWX and ROX.
