Behind the Scenes: Cumulus Networks, Dell and Red Hat’s 300+ Node OpenStack Pod

 

Installing, Configuring, and Managing a 300+ OpenStack Node Network In Under An Hour 

Deploying and managing a large OpenStack deployment can be daunting, but much easier when you use standard DevOps automation tools, a Linux-based network, and commodity servers and switches. Cumulus Networks, Red Hat and Dell designed and implemented a production-ready OpenStack pod while removing scalability and maintenance challenges for end users. The project demonstrated successful use of shared DevOps tools that tore down functional silos, fostered collaboration, and implemented infrastructure as code concepts.
