Reference Architecture Summary

The deployment of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform varies among several factors that impact the installation process. Key considerations include:

  • Which installation method do you want to use?
  • How many instances do you require in the cluster?
  • Is high availability required?
  • Which installation type do you want to use: RPM or containerized?
  • Is my installation supported if integrating with other Red Hat technologies?

The initial planning process for this reference architecture answers these questions for this environment as follows:

  • Which installation method do you want to use? Advanced Installation
  • How many instances do you require in the cluster? 10
  • Is high availability required? Yes
  • Which installation type do you want to use: RPM or containerized? RPM
  • Is my installation supported if integrating with other Red Hat technologies? Yes

A pictorial representation of the environment in this reference environment is shown below.
