With the release of OpenShift Container Platform 4.10, Red Hat and Alibaba Cloud have collaborated to include Installer Provisioned Infrastructure (IPI) support as Technology Preview for the leading cloud platform. We invite customers to try out the single-click fully-automated OpenShift 4 installation on Alibaba Cloud and provide us feedback.
Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group, and a Red Hat Certified Cloud Service Provider (CCSP) partner since 2017, provides compute, storage and network for both the expanding China and international markets.
With Technology Preview, customers can deploy Openshift 4 on Alibaba Cloud within one hour from cloud.redhat.com. The fully automated installation allows customers to select the Alibaba Cloud region where they want to deploy the Openshift 4 cluster. The installation automatically provisions Alibaba Cloud resources including VPC, vSwitch, ECS, SLB, EBS, OSS, Alibaba Cloud DNS and NAT gateway, which creates the necessary infrastructure to provision three Openshift controller nodes and three Openshift worker nodes. Beyond the initial automated installation, IPI provides auto scaling of worker nodes by provisioning new ECS instances, installing Openshift on the new instances, and automatically joins them to the cluster.
“The engineering effort was in response to our joint customers' need for a smoother support and user experience for OpenShift workloads on Alibaba Cloud.”
-- Andrew Hapgood, Red Hat, VP, Partner Ecosystem.
