This IBM® Blueprint is intended to facilitate the deployment of IBM Storage for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform by using detailed hardware specifications to build a system. It describes the associated parameters for configuring persistent storage within a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment. To complete the tasks, you must understand Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Storage, the IBM block storage Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver, and the IBM Spectrum Scale CSI driver.
The information in this document is distributed on an “as is” basis without any warranty that is either expressed or implied. Support assistance for the use of this material is limited to situations where IBM Storwize® or IBM FlashSystem® storage devices, Enterprise Storage Server®, and IBM Spectrum® Scale are supported and entitled, and where the issues are not specific to a blueprint implementation.
IBM Storage Suite for IBM Cloud® Paks is an offering bundle that includes software-defined storage from IBM and Red Hat. Use this document for more information about how to deploy IBM Storage product licenses that are obtained through Storage Suite for Cloud Paks (IBM Spectrum Virtualize and IBM Spectrum Scale).
