This solution includes the standard components of the current Dell EMC Ready Stack for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 4.3. Those components include three Dell EMC PowerEdge R640 manager nodes and a PowerEdge R640 Cluster System Admin Host (CSAH) node. For networking, the solution includes two Dell EMC PowerSwitch S5232F-ON 100 GbE switches and one PowerSwitch S3048-ON 1 GbE switch for out-of-band management connectivity.
This solution uses three PowerEdge R740xd worker nodes and adds one PowerEdge C4140 server as an additional worker node.
The configuration and deployment of the test environment is based on the current version of the Dell EMC Ready Stack for Red Hat OpenShift 4.3. Using the design guide and deployment guide, we added the C4140 node with four NVIDIA T100 GPUs and constructed the cluster architecture shown in the following figure:
