Chapter 1. Recommendations for Large Deployments

Use the following undercloud and overcloud recommendations, specifications, and configuration for deploying a large Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) environment. RHOSP 16.2 deployments that include more than 100 overcloud nodes are considered large environments. Red Hat has tested and validated optimum performance on a large scale environment of 700 overcloud nodes using RHOSP 16.2 without using minion.

For DCN-based deployments, the number of nodes from the central and edge sites can be very high. For recommendations about DCN deployments, contact Red Hat Global Support Services.
