Cloud native technology has been highlighted in modern cloud infrastructure design for its light weight and high portability. It also achieves efficient development and operation (DevOps), thereby facilitating agile service deployment and business innovation. To accelerate cloud-native transformation at minimized expenses, QCT validated the Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform and Kubernetes Platform to ensure high-quality service and performance.
QCT QxStack with Cloud-Native Platform is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution built on the Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform and strengthened by Intel Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) technology. The production-ready performance-optimized solution features a Hyper Converged Infrastructure (HCI) architecture that supports VMs and container coexistence and allows resource sharing. Furthermore, with exceptional network performance and stability, the solution achieves ideal CAPEX and OPEX in all stages of new technology implementation.
Extraordinary network performance that brings high value to the company.
Outstanding extendibility and flexibility achieved by integrating Ceph storage into HCI architecture.
Optimized model and configuration for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
The QCT-validated Kubernetes platform with Enhanced Platform Awareness (EPA) brings high interoperability and agility in workload orchestration. The platform features enhanced data-plane networking, resource isolation, and hardware capability discovery, which are tailored for Network Function Virtualization (NFV) workloads to achieve stable and reliable orchestration for cloud-native applications with promising deterministic performance.
Built on Kubernetes to achieve lightweight and higher portability when compared to Virtual Machines (VMs).
CPU Manager adoption for Kubernetes (CMK) to ensure efficient CPU resource allocation.
Data Plane Development Kit (DPDK) to reduce processing overhead and accelerate packet processing.
