Production Ready Kubernetes Container Solution

Li9, Supermicro and Red Hat have partnered to develop an integrated best-in-class Kubernetes Solution.   It includes Red Hat OpenShift with Data Foundation for persistent storage and integrated with the high-value, high-performance, and high-availability Supermicro Server Platform.

Complete Cost: $148,000

OpenShift is deployed directly on Supermicro Server Bare-Metal which allows customers to quickly achieve maximum value and performance by giving container applications direct access to compute, memory and storage resources. The Supermicro Server configurations are optimized, tested, and certified for OpenShift.

This solution leverages OpenShift’s ability to run the same container applications in Public Cloud, Virtual Private Cloud, or on Bare-Metal without having to change the application or tools to create a true hybrid-cloud container environment.
