How does Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) support work?

Solution Verified - Updated -

Environment

  • Red Hat Virtualization (RHV) 4.1 with Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) 1.0/1.1
  • RHV 4.2 with RHHI 1.5

Issue

  • How does Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure work, both in terms of entitlements needed as well as layering of Red Hat Virtualization plus its guests and Red Hat Storage?

Resolution

NOTE: RHHI 1.0, 1.1 are not supported to run on RHV 4.2, however RHHI 1.5 is supported. RHHI is not supported with RHV 4.0.

  • Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure (RHHI) is an offering based on Red Hat Virtualization(RHV) and Red Hat Storage (RHS).

  • The only supported way to use RHV hosts as Hyperconverged (i.e. to provide Red Hat Storage and Virtualization capabilities at the same time) is through RHHI deployment.

  • In order to run a supported RHHI environment you will need to specifically have a RHHI entitlement. At this time it isn't supported to run a RHHI environment with just RHEV + RHS entitlements; though using Red Hat Storage for simply hosting RHV guests, i.e. to use RHS as RHV Storage Domain, is fine.

* RHHI 1.5
