The DTVD for OpenShift Container Platform 4.6 is a proven design to help organizations accelerate their container deployments and cloud-native adoption. This guide provides information for building an on-premises infrastructure solution to host OpenShift Container Platform 4.6. The guide describes the design decisions and configurations that were made to enable solution architects to:
- Design and deploy a container platform solution.
- Extend or modify the design as necessary to meet customer requirements.
This guide includes:
- Container ecosystem design overview
- Network infrastructure design guidance
- Container and application storage design guidance
- Server requirements to support OpenShift Container Platform node roles
- Configuration recommendations to optimize latency and networking performance
- General guidance for remote compute nodes at the edge
- Hardware platform configuration recommendations
- Rack-level design and power configuration considerations
A companion implementation guide provides information about automation-assisted deployment of the solution. The implementation guide is available at the Dell Technologies Info Hub for Containers.
