The customer environment must include:
- An existing Ethernet infrastructure. Ready Stack components require Dell EMC Networking S5248F-ON switches or other Dell EMC Networking or customer-provided switches that support 10/25 GbE and 40/100 GbE uplinks to an existing Ethernet infrastructure. Additional components such as Dell EMC network cables and transceivers are also needed.
- Active Directory Services, Domain Name System (DNS), and Network Time Protocol (NTP) services on the management network. While it is possible to use IP address management services such as Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol (DHCP), we recommend static IP assignments for all Ready Stack components.
- Sufficient power and cooling to support all components. For more information, see the relevant product documentation.
