Supported options on Amazon Web Services (AWS)
Supported installation and storage options for running IBM Cloud Pak for Integration on Amazon Web Services (AWS).
A cluster deployed manually, using Installer Provisioned Infrastructure or User Provisioned Infrastructure. See Preparing a cluster to use Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) for more information.
A managed OpenShift cluster from a cloud provider, including:
Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS.
IBM Cloud Satellite. See Getting started with IBM Cloud Satellite for more information.
For versions of OpenShift Container Platform that are compatible with the Cloud Pak for Integration release, see Operating environment. For more information about the schedule for OpenShift Container Platform versions supported by OpenShift on AWS, see "Life cycle dates" in Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS update life cycle.
The following table describes each capability's compatibility with these storage options:
Amazon Elastic Block Store (EBS)
Amazon Elastic File System (EFS)
OpenShift Data Foundation (ODF, formerly OpenShift Container Storage)
- For OpenShift Data Foundation in a production environment, the optimal minimum deployment is 4 storage nodes, with 3 Object Storage Daemons (OSDs) on each node. This provides much greater data resiliency in the event of any OSD failures.Important: ODF is not supported on ROSA (Red Hat OpenShift on AWS managed cloud). For more information, see OCS/ODF support on OSD and ROSA.
