Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure

News

Find out more about how Red Hat® Hyperconverged Infrastructure can lower costs, simplify operations, and improve efficiency.

Red Hat HYPERCONVERGED INFRASTRUCTURE

Consolidated. Centrally Managed. Highly Available.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) integrates Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and Red Hat Gluster Storage (RHGS). RHHI provides open-source, centrally administered, and cost-effective integrated compute and storage in a compact footprint for remote sites.

Features

Central Virtual Resource Management

RHV Manager is a secure, web-based tool that provides central management for compute, network, and storage resources.

Consolidate Resources

By using the same server hardware as both the hypervisor (host) and controller (storage), RHHI reduces capital expenditures, operation overhead, and deployment time.

Optimize Storage Volumes

Replicated volumes provide high availability and high reliability for critical workloads. Arbitrated replicated volumes provide the consistency of three-way replication with less disk space.

Day Two Operations

Scalability (up to nine nodes), fencing, geo-replication, and encryption enhance remote-office and edge-computing needs.

Get Started with Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure 1.1

For basic installation, you will need:

Environment Requirements

Avoid potential deployment delays caused by incomplete or insufficient environment requirements.

Installer Image

Download the RHV-H ISO image.

30-45 Minutes

Installation takes about 30-45 minutes.

Instructions

  1. 1

    Install RHV-H 4.1 on your three physical machines.

  2. 2

    Configure Public-key SSH Authentication from the First Virtualization Host.

  3. 3

    Configure RHGS for the Hosted Engine.

    This step configures the gluster volumes and adds all ports that are required for gluster. Ensure that the disks specified as part of this deployment process do not have any partitions or labels.

  4. 4

    Deploy the Hosted Engine.

    This step deploys the Hosted Engine and adds one physical machine to the default cluster.

  5. 5

    Configure RHGS as a RHV Storage Domain.

    This final step requires the following actions:

    1. Create the logical network for gluster traffic.

    2. Create the master storage domain.

    3. Add remaining virtualization hosts to the Hosted Engine.
