Abstract

This Reference Architecture (RA) describes the system architecture for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform based on Lenovo ThinkSystem servers and Lenovo network switches. It provides detail of the hardware requirements to support various OpenShift node roles and the corresponding configuration of the systems. It also describes the network architecture and details for the switch configurations.

Two example deployment configurations are described for a typical configuration and the Intel Select Base configuration. The hardware bill of materials is provided for all required components to build the OpenShift cluster. A deployment guide is provided to show how to prepare, provision, deploy, and manage the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform on Lenovo ThinkSystem servers and Lenovo network switches.

The target audience for this RA is system administrators or system architects. Some experience with Docker and OpenShift technologies may be helpful, but it is not required.
