Having difficulty bringing containers into production? Red Hat and Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) have an answer. They’re optimizing Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP), Red Hat’s Kubernetes enclosure adaptation platform, on HPE platforms, including HPE Synergy.
Sure, it’s easy to muster containerized applications in growth and exam environments, though it’s not so easy in enterprise-sized prolongation environments. Enterprises mostly need enclosure scalability, combined confidence features, determined storage, and manageability to muster containers in production. To assistance speed adult enclosure focus delivery, HPE and Red Hat are collaborating in what HPE calls a industry’s “first composable infrastructure”.
In addition, a dual companies are also collaborating to offer services to assistance business adopt RHOCP with HPE platforms from explanation of judgment to production.
“Deploying large-scale enclosure environments to a craving information core is not simple,” pronounced Neil MacDonald, HPE Blade System’s VP, in a statement. “Through a long-standing partnership with Red Hat, we’re aiming to accelerate a adoption and deployment of a RHOCP with HPE solutions from explanation of judgment to large-scale deployment. Customers of both companies can now update their height leveraging any of a services, support, and certified RHOCP record stacks on HPE Synergy and HPE Nimble and 3PAR storage arrays.”
“DevOps and flexible focus growth are assisting business to broach on a guarantee of digital mutation with accelerated focus growth and microservices architectures,” combined Ashesh Badani, Red Hat’s OpenShift VP. “Together, Red Hat and HPE aim to broach a container-based resolution that enables business to not usually build new cloud-native apps and microservices, though also to update bequest applications.”
This jointly engineered enclosure resolution is optimized for continual formation and continual smoothness (CI/CD) by RHOCP and for regulating cloud-native microservices applications alongside existent normal and stateful applications. Red Hat Ansible Tower, Red Hat’s DevOps tool, and HPE Synergy Composer will automate enclosure deployment in a rarely accessible environment, so organizations can take advantage of enclosure advantages earlier and with reduction risk.
Specifically HPE will span pivotal components of a hybrid IT products and services portfolio with a following Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform capabilities:
- Containerization services. Helps business adopt and quit to RHOCP with containerization services by HPE Pointnext.
- Reference architecture. This will yield best use blueprints for deploying scalable enclosure platforms from growth to operations regulating RHOCP on HPE Synergy pattern with HPE 3PAR and HPE Nimble Storage.
- Composable Infrastructure for containers. This leverages HPE Synergy as a singular height to run containers on practical machines or on unclothed metal, and normal non-containerized applications side-by-side.
- Persistent storage for containers. Enables developers to sustenance and conduct storage volumes on direct with RHOCP’s determined volume framework, creation it easier to sustenance enclosure volumes, strengthen enclosure data, and set Quality-of-Service (QoS) on HPE 3PAR and Nimble storage arrays.
- Faster deployment and automation. Offers a finish set of Ansible DevOps playbooks along with step-by-step deployment guides to automate deployment of a HPE Synergy with RHOCP including high availability, networking, bucket balancing, determined storage, enclosure information insurance policies, and handling complement security. This API-driven, programmatic control of earthy infrastructure can muster a production-ready RHOCP sourroundings to reduction than dual hours.
- Container information protection. Improves backup and replacement of RHOCP information from open clouds regulating HPE Cloud Volumes and/or HPE Cloud Bank Storage.
- Stronger security. Leverages several confidence collection designed to strengthen a finish stack. In addition, HPE offers a Gen10 Silicon Root of Trust confidence during a processor firmware level, that ensures servers do not govern compromised firmware code, and HPE Workload Aware Security for Linux (WASL) to serve urge confidence from a OS turn and below.
This hardware and program smoke-stack will be accessible in Sep 2018.
