Is planning and installing your next Cloud deployment giving you a big headache?
Are you losing sleep as you toss and turn, worrying about the compatibility of the components to be installed?
Well worry no more.
You can plan your next Cloud deployment and ensure the compatibility of the Red Hat Open Source components you want to integrate will actually perform as desired with the Cloud Deployment Planner by Red Hat.
You can select the various components that you want to install, then check the compatibility matrix to ensure your deployment components are valid. Below in figure 1 you see a screenshot of the Cloud Deployment Planner, which you can access online, that has various components selected that we wish to install.
|Figure 1: The Cloud Deployment Planner with some of the Red Hat Cloud Suite components selected for installation.|
There are options to select the components from the Red Hat Cloud Suite or Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure products. Each component includes the supported versions, in this case we have selected:
- Red Hat Satellite v6.1
- Red Hat Cloud Forms v3.2
- Red Hat OpenStack Platform v8
- OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat v3.1
- Red Hat Ceph Storage v1.2
