Chapter 7. Summary

With Red Hat OpenShift Platform 4.4, Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13 and 16.0, and Red Hat Ceph Storage 3 and 4, organisations have access to a comprehensive and prescriptive installation experience for their on-premises container infrastructure.

Built on the already proven and successful integrations of Red Hat OpenStack Platform 13 and 16.0, and Red Hat Ceph Storage 3 and 4, IT Operations can be assured of an OpenShift installation and Day 2 operational experience similar to their public cloud installs. This makes the vision, and delivery, of true Hybrid Cloud even stronger and more compelling by ensuring organisations do not need to accept any compromise regardless of infrastructure solution chosen.

This reference architecture showcases a prescriptive and pre-validated private cloud solution from Red Hat that allows you to run IT as a Service (ITaaS), and provides rapid provisioning and lifecycle management of containerized infrastructure, virtual machines (VMs), and associated application and infrastructure services.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat OpenStack Platform, and Red Hat Ceph Storage are the key architectural components of this solution. It can be easily extended to Hybrid and Multi-Cloud with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform serving as the common container and kubernetes platform across all clouds.

The Red Hat Quality Engineering teams (QE) have tested and validated the implementation as presented in this solution. This ensures organizations seeking to operationalize this reference architecture quickly can be assured that all options represented are both fully tested as well as fully supported by Red Hat.
