Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) integrates Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) and Red Hat Gluster Storage (RHGS). RHHI for Virtualization 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 twelve nodes), fencing, geo-replication, and encryption enhance remote-office and edge-computing needs.

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Cloud

Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) for Cloud integrates Red Hat Ceph Storage (RHCS) and Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP).  RHHI for Cloud provides an open source, hyperconverged solution to accomplish multiple platform-related datacenter and edge tasks with software-defined storage.

Features

Maximize Resources

Colocate storage (RHCS) and compute (RHOSP) functions on the same host (as a prepackaged software product) with a unified lifecycle and a UI installation experience based on RHOSP Director.

Multiple Workloads

Deploy in both large central datacenters for the core of the network (data and call routing, record storage, etc.) and for the edge of the network (local call management, content delivery, etc.).

Scalability

Provides small, six-node configurations with potential to grow to a regional data center on a per node basis (up to thirty nodes).

Hardware Consolidation

Enables standardized hardware without a proprietary commitment, which allows potential discounts for similar server types, simplified operations, and more efficient use of hardware resources.

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.

Get Started with Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for cloud 13

For deployment, you will need:

Environment Requirements

Verify three core requirements (hardware, software,  network) before deploying the RHHI for Cloud solution.

Installer Image

30-45 minutes

Deployment takes about 30-45 minutes.

Instructions using the Red Hat OpenStack Platform (RHOSP) Director interface

  1. 1

    Deploy the undercloud

    You can deploy and manage the common undercloud configuration, and export a deployment plan for other technicians to follow when deploying the overcloud.

  2. 2

    Export an Overcloud Plan

    The default deployment plan contains a common, and exportable overcloud configuration.The default deployment plan contains a common, and exportable overcloud configuration.

  3. 3

    Import an Overcloud Plan

    import a deployment plan that has previously been exported.

  4. 4

    Deploy the overcloud

    You can deploy the overcloud to hyperconverged nodes based on a predefined role.
