Automated Deployment of Openshift

Objective of the project

The customer's main objective was to become an internal cloud provider and run applications through the Red Hat Openshift Container Platform. The customer purchased a product subscription and 10 physical servers to run the applications. It asked us to come up with a solution proposal and subsequently carry out actual implementation within its own environment.

Implementation

The product is usually installed and thereafter supported by a company having the proper expertise. This was not acceptable to the customer, as it wanted to have the option of installing Openshift independently in other environments. The ideal solution to this requirement was to create an automated installer in the Red Hat Ansible tool. The installer significantly reduces the time and effort required by the infrastructure manager. It easily and quickly prepares the entire platform for immediate use.

Implementation steps

  • We listed the client's needs for the operation of applications within the bounds of detailed initial consultation
  • We then designed and created scalable architecture based on those needs
  • Using Ansible, we installed a virtualisation platform on physical servers and created virtual servers
  • We automatically installed Openshift on the infrastructure prepared in this way

The following components are included in installation

  • the centralisation of logs
  • monitoring
  • persistent storage
  • own SSL certificates
  • SSO
  • autoscaling

A customised Video Guide for Developers was created as part of the delivery, this describing how to use the platform within the customer's internal environment.

The result of the project

The customer is able to create the required number of additional Openshift clusters and can have the cluster ready for use by developers within 40 minutes.

All applications are automatically provided with security via SSL certificates. Openshift is connected to the centralised administration of users.

The increase in performance requirements is covered by the automatic scaling of the Openshift Container Platform over the virtualised infrastructure.
