  • ° Rapid on-ramp to OpenStack with the Proof of Concept Configuration – designed for customers looking to explore OpenStack capabilities, research deployment options, and pilot application deployments. It is also appropriate for those beginning development of an OpenStack cloud strategy. The POC configuration integrates five Dell PowerEdge R720 servers, configured as OpenStack Manager and OpenStack Controllers with multiple OpenStack (Nova) Compute nodes and Dell networking.

    ° Pilot configuration is for testing cloud applications, and for customers just starting out with OpenStack in production. The base pilot configuration is capable of supporting cloud-scale applications across six OpenStack compute and three storage nodes. The pilot configuration can be expanded with pre-configured compute, storage and infrastructure blocks.

    ° Production scale-out configurations are for customers seeking scale-out designs. These datacenter-scale solutions are created collaboratively with the customer, building on the years of experience Dell and Red Hat have working together.
