Red Hat Enterprise Linux Add-Ons

This section provides information on add-on packages that can be sold with the RHEL Operating System from Lenovo. Any “Add-On” package will adopt the support levels of the underlying server OS (i.e. Standard or Premium support, Lenovo Support or Red Hat Support).

  • RHEL High Availability. RHEL High Availability Add-On allows a service to fail over from one (1) node to another with no apparent interruption to cluster clients, evicting faulty nodes during transfer to prevent data corruption. This Add-On can be configured for most applications (both off-the-shelf and custom) and virtual guests and supports up to 16 nodes. The High Availability Add-On features a cluster manager, lock management, fencing, command-line cluster configuration, and a Conga administration tool. Lenovo resells High Availability by 2-socket server (like RHEL, either two physical sockets or virtual machines). There is also a subscription for unlimited VMs but will be limited to 16 RHEL VMs.
  • Red Hat Load Balancer. The Load Balancer Add-On is a set of integrated software components that provide Linux Virtual Servers (LVS) for balancing IP loads across a set of real servers. The Load Balancer Add-On runs on an active LVS router as well as a backup LVS router. The active LVS router serves two roles:
    • To balance the load across the real servers.
    • To check the integrity of the services on each real server.

    The backup LVS router monitors the active LVS router and takes over from it in case the active LVS router fails. Lenovo resells the Load Balancer Add-On in 1, 3, and 5-year subscriptions as with most Red Hat products.

  • Red Hat Resilient Storage. Red Hat Resilient Storage Add-On lets users access the same storage device over a network—using either shared storage or a clustered file system—through a pool of data that's available to each server in a group. Each server in a cluster has direct access to a shared block device over a local storage area network (SAN) of up to 100 terabytes. This Add-On includes the Global File System 2 to support concurrent access, a cluster-wide locking mechanism to arbitrate storage access, a POSIX-compliant file system across 16 nodes, and Clustered Samba or Common Internet File System for Windows environments.
  • Red Hat Scalable File System. Red Hat Scalable (also called Global) File System (XFS) helps you maximize the benefits of clustering and minimize the costs. Red Hat XFS is commonly used in clusters of enterprise applications to provide high speed access to a consistent file system image across the server nodes. This allows the cluster nodes to simultaneously read and write to a single shared file system. XFS is a robust and mature 64-bit journaling file system that supports very large files and file systems on a single host. It is the default file system in Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Journaling ensures file system integrity after system crashes (for example, due to power outages) by keeping a record of file system operations that can be replayed when the system is restarted, and the file system remounted. XFS was originally developed in the early 1990s by SGI and has a long history of running on extremely large servers and storage arrays.
  • RHEL Extended Update Support. RHEL Extended Update Support extends the support period of a Red Hat Enterprise Linux update for approximately two years beyond the standard 7-year life cycle. An Extended Update Support system receives the same updates as the base system until the next minor release, at which point the system tied to this Add-On is restricted to only critical security advisories and prioritized bug fixes. The Extended Update Support Add-On also lets users skip specific Red Hat Enterprise Linux minor releases and instead implement the minor releases of their choosing.
  • Red Hat Smart Management. Red Hat Smart Management combines the flexible and powerful infrastructure management capabilities of Red Hat Satellite with the simplicity of cloud management services for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It helps you more securely manage any environment supported by Red Hat Enterprise Linux—from physical machines to hybrid multiclouds. Note that Satellite is no longer sold as a stand-alone subscription but is accessible to any Smart Management subscription. Smart Management is typically bundled with other RHEL subscriptions such as HPC.
  • RHEL Extended Lifecycle Support. The Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) Extended Life Cycle Support Add-On (ELS) is an offering that provides extended support once a product is retired and has entered the Extended Life Phase allowing customers to continue to receive critical impact security fixes and selected urgent priority bug fixes on a specific major version of Red Hat Enterprise Linux from the end of its regular life cycle for an extended, defined period of time. ELS is only applicable to the last minor release of the given major release.

  • Red Hat Gluster Storage. Red Hat Gluster Storage is a software-defined storage (SDS) platform. It is designed to handle general purpose workloads like backup and archival, as well as analytics. It is ideal for hyperconvergence. It is cost-efficient and, unlike traditional storage systems, can be deployed on bare metal, virtual, container, and cloud environments. Red Hat Gluster Storage stores data without the need for a metadata server, eliminating any single point of failure.

Engineered solutions and Reference architectures

Lenovo publishes several engineered solutions using Red Hat products. These are typically accompanied by detailed Reference Architectures posted on the Lenovo Press web site.

Through the Intel Select Solution program, Lenovo offers a growing portfolio of high availability Red Hat solutions featuring the robust ThinkSystem SR630 and SR650 servers. These offerings combine high-performance and cost-effective server platforms with Red Hat software. Some of the Reference Architectures are also Intel Select Solutions.

Recently published Reference Architectures include the following:

  • Red Hat OpenStack Platform - lenovopress.com/lp0762. This reference architecture was updated to include Red Hat OpenStack 13 – the long term supported release.
  • Red Hat Ceph Storage - lenovopress.com/lp1147. This is a new reference architecture for Ceph storage, which gives customers access to unified, scalable storage with block, file, and object access.
  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform - lenovopress.com/lp0968. This reference architecture was updated for both second-generation Intel Xeon Scalable processors and Intel Select programs. OpenShift provides container-based workloads on an OpenStack platform.
  • Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure for Virtualization - lenovopress.com/lp1148. This is a new reference architecture for hyper-convergence on Red Hat’s virtualization and distributed storage technologies. The solution allows customers to execute VMs on servers and use local drives for distributed, redundant storage. While it is similar to Nutanix and vSAN, the Red Hat solution is KVM-based in combination with Gluster distributed storage and is driven by Red Hat Ansible Automation. Red Hat Hyperconverged Infrastructure is positioned to serve as highly available basis for deployment and management of Red Hat and Lenovo’s solutions.
  • Lenovo Open Cloud - lenovopress.com/lp1149. This is a new reference architecture which describes Lenovo’s first infrastructure as code (IaC) solution which reduces cost, speeds deployment, and reduces risk by removing errors and security issues. It means that Lenovo Open Cloud can be used to plan infrastructure deployment using NetBox DCIM, automatically discover, configure and manage the HW using Lenovo XClarity and Confluent, deploy other infrastructure platforms such as an OpenStack, Ceph or OpenShift clusters, and manage the platform end-to-end using Red Hat Satellite, Ansible Tower and CloudForms reducing the usual effort of days to mere hours. It allows customers to modify deployed clusters by adding newly discovered servers and to, just as easily, tear down the cluster and redeploy it for another purpose. Lenovo Open Cloud can even deploy itself via a bootstrapping process.
  • OpenStack for Service Providers - lenovopress.com/lp0913. This is an update to our “Telco” reference architecture for Red Hat OpenStack 13, the first vertical on top of Lenovo Open Cloud. The RA update includes performance measurements for our tuned NFVi stack on ThinkSystem servers.
