2 This white paper introduces the HP Helion Rack solution architecture and how its capabilities work together to meet the needs of three key cloud use cases. It examines the optimization done for the OpenStack services and cloud use cases throughout the integrated solution components, as well as key considerations and best practices built into the design to enable rapid deployment and simplify ongoing solution management. Introduction Lines of business and development and test teams are looking for immediate access to flexible compute resources to fulfill their mandates. But many IT departments find themselves unable to deliver those resources on time and within budget. As a result, they find themselves dealing with risky shadow IT as development and application teams utilize public clouds that are readily available with fast, easy access to unlimited compute resources. But public clouds don t have the compliance, security, isolation, and control that businesses require for services incorporating customer records, confidential information, or proprietary data. They also often lack the performance requirements of demanding workloads, causing additional frustration for the business. Deploying a private cloud on an integrated infrastructure can be the answer for your business. Research shows that organizations deploying preconfigured integrated computing platforms are seeing significant benefits: 1 Faster, simplified deployments Increased provisioning agility Simpler, easier management Improved service and support Reduced total cost of ownership (TCO) In addition to an integrated platform, IT teams also need to ensure any cloud deployed is built on an open architecture without proprietary limitations or lock-in. This allows the business to rapidly innovate and integrate as the demands and needs of the business change over time. It also allows for better cost control. Unfortunately, while IT departments generally understand these needs, they don t always have the resources, infrastructure, or skills, needed to meet the business demand within the required timeframes. HP Helion Rack HP Helion Rack is a pre-configured, pre-tuned, and pre-tested private cloud solution built with HP Helion OpenStack and HP Helion Development Platform on the HP ProLiant DL Gen9 server platform. This industry leading integrated solution stack delivers comprehensive capabilities and best practices to accelerate your deployment and provide you with the following benefits: Rapid deployment Eliminate months of design, testing, and troubleshooting with a solution that s factory built with onsite installation. Simplified management A common software and hardware platform architecture simplifies support, administration, updates, and maintenance to simplify ongoing management. 1 Integrated Computing Platform Trends, Enterprise Strategy Group, August

3 Easy scaling Easily scale-out with additional object and block storage and compute nodes to meet your business needs. Scale-up by adding memory, drives, CPUs, and networking within each node. Workload flexibility The flexible workload infrastructure is designed to meet varying requirements from low-latency and high transactions, to compute-intensive and high-density, while keeping you in control of security and compliance requirements. Rapid cloud-native application development Multiple language and framework support, as well as integrated application services such as database and messaging services add scalability and high availability to applications. Open architecture Enables flexibility in workload hosting, application code, management tools, and costs. The solution delivers both Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) to support modern development practices by integrating HP Helion Development Platform with HP Helion OpenStack to provide an accelerated, seamless experience. For additional information on HP Helion OpenStack, see: docs.hpcloud.com/helion/openstack/. Figure 1. HP Helion Rack provides the components for a complete private cloud solution that supports cloud native applications. 3

4 Understanding and applying the optimal solution configuration Figure 1 shows the HP Helion Rack solution configuration. The solution is highly configurable with scaling and option choices that can be made based on the specific use cases to be supported. HP offers a wide range of server, storage, and networking devices that can be combined to provide an integrated infrastructure platform for your private cloud. The HP Helion Rack architecture uses a combination of HP ProLiant DL360 and DL380 Gen9 Servers in a highly available configuration. These servers were selected due to their scalability so that fewer nodes are needed to deliver the compute and storage power required to support the three most important cloud use cases. Customers also favor them for their flexibility, providing a common platform across the entire solution for ease-of-management with consistent upgrades and scaling. It is recommended that you deploy and scale-out using HP ProLiant DL360 and DL380 Gen9 Servers as configured to maintain these benefits. The initial HP Helion Rack configuration includes: One Seed virtual machine (VM) host (DL360 optimized for Seed VM host services) One UnderCloud controller (DL360 optimized for UnderCloud services) Three OverCloud controllers (DL360s optimized for OverCloud services) Two Starter Swift object storage nodes (DL380) Three VSA Cinder block storage nodes (DL380) Four compute nodes (DL360s optimized for workload flexibility) Two networking switches (HP FlexFabric 5700) HP Helion OpenStack installed software with nine subscriptions HP Helion Development Platform installed software with nine subscriptions The initial configuration also includes room for scale-out expansion: Additional compute nodes (DL360) Additional Swift storage nodes (DL380) Additional VSA block storage nodes (DL380) HP s industry leading HP ProLiant servers are designed for multi-workload performance, optimally configured to support the needs of the OpenStack services in the control plane, and allow you to scale seamlessly. You can scale-up with additional ProLiant memory, hard drives for compute and storage-centric needs, or scale-out with additional compute and object or block storage nodes. Integrated IaaS and PaaS HP Helion Rack delivers both IaaS and PaaS for your private cloud by integrating HP Helion OpenStack with HP Helion Development Platform to provide a seamless experience. The HP Helion Development Platform provides developers instant access to a variety of runtimes, applications, and services to rapidly configure and deploy applications. It enables application deployment and scaling across clouds without a code rewrite. HP Helion Development Platform is based on the industry leading open-source technologies of Cloud Foundry software, Docker container technology, and OpenStack software. Its integration with HP Helion OpenStack enables IT Professionals to deploy and manage a development environment from the same console they use to manage their HP Helion OpenStack infrastructure. HP Helion OpenStack is a commercial distribution built on OpenStack technology with resiliency, manageability, and reliability enhancements from HP as a leader, top contributor, and one of the largest users in the OpenStack cloud community. These enhancements eliminate months of training, development, and tuning required for most open sourcebased private clouds to achieve workload readiness. It also enables you to quickly build a manageable, resilient, enterprisegrade hybrid cloud while avoiding vendor lock-in. HP Helion OpenStack and HP Development platform together enable you to flexibly deploy and host workloads, applications, and services across whichever cloud delivery model public, private, or managed/hosted that best enables your business. 4

5 Build the control plane to optimally support each OpenStack service Each component of the HP Helion Rack solution provides a different function and is architected accordingly. Seed node The Seed node is used for booting the seed VM and deploying the UnderCloud. It requires only about 1 TB of storage and does not have a high workload as it only provides DHCP and network boot service to the UnderCloud and stores the scripts to back up and restore the control plane server. A DL360 Gen9 Server with 1 x 6-core Intel Xeon CPU, 32 GB memory, and 4 LFF drive bays with RAID 1 provides the required protection and performance at a reasonable cost. UnderCloud node The UnderCloud deploys, manages, and maintains the OverCloud. The UnderCloud must be able to handle a fair amount of I/O for centralized logging, monitoring software, and other functions. A DL360 Gen9 Server has been configured to meet these needs with 2 x 6-core Intel Xeon CPU, 64 GB memory, and 4 LFF drive bays with fast 600 GB 15k drives. RAID 10 provides the necessary protection and performance. OverCloud controller nodes The OverCloud controller requires high performance since it runs the majority of the core services for the OpenStack cloud production environment, including Nova, Keystone, Glance, Cinder, Heat, Neutron, and Horizon. The deployment of three separate OverCloud controllers provides high availability and helps ensure resilient, non-stop cloud operation. One node is assigned a special role as the Manager controller. For each of the three OverCloud controller nodes in the Helion Rack solution, a DL360 Gen9 Server is optimized with a 2 x 12-core 2.6 GHz Intel Xeon CPU, 64 GB memory, 4 LFF drive bays with fast 600 GB 15k drives, and RAID 10 to ensure protection and performance. Integrated storage for availability, capacity, and flexibility Starter Swift nodes Swift nodes are used by Glance to store image and instance snapshots, with capacity being more important than performance. To achieve the highest capacity, we use the DL380 Gen9 Server with 15 LFF drive bays and up to 6 TB per drive. The OS is installed on 2 x 15k 600 GB drives configured as RAID 1 volumes. The remaining 13 drive bays have 7.2k 6 TB drives configured as RAID 0 JBOD for a total of 78 TB raw Swift storage. A minimum of two nodes is required to provide full redundancy. Swift can scale up to 12 nodes, with nodes being added one or more at a time. See docs.hpcloud.com/helion/openstack/services/object/overview/scale-out-swift/ for more information on scaling Swift nodes. VSA block storage HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Servers configured to support Cinder with VSA support provides cost-effective block storage for seamless application high availability with automatic, transparent failover and failback across zones. It provides high-performance, persistent storage with the ability to capture snapshots and do backups. Fast, high-capacity drives are required for optimal performance. 10 x 10k 1.2 TB drives are configured, for a total of 12 TB raw per node, with RAID 5 for a balance between performance, maximum capacity, and price. Up to 26 x 10k 1.2 TB drives can be scaled up into each server in a tailored configuration. The deployment of three separate block storage servers in the solution configuration provides high availability and data protection for your more demanding workloads. To increase performance, you can tailor your configuration by enabling VSA Adaptive Optimization and scale-up with SSD drives used in combination with the high-speed SAS drives. 5

6 Flexible compute for reliable, multi-workload requirements Compute nodes run the VM workloads, and provide ephemeral storage for the VMs. The number of VMs that can be run is directly proportionate to the number of CPU cores and memory available on the compute node. The DL360 Gen9 compute servers in the HP Helion Rack solution are configured to the optimum core density, which is 18 cores per processor and up to 36 cores per compute node. The compute nodes are also optimized with 256 GB memory so each physical core can access on average 7 GB of memory. Both drive speed and capacity is important for cloud compute nodes. Each HP Helion Rack compute node has 4 x 1.2 TB 10k SFF drives, which provide 4.8 TB raw of storage, configured as RAID 10 volumes. Four compute nodes are included in the configuration to reduce the potential for an I/O bottleneck and provide a good base for workload capacity with a potential for up to 500 small VMs. Actual VM capacity will depend on your specific workload mix and requirements. Integrated networking for ultra-low latency and high-density workloads HP Helion Rack includes networking switches specifically chosen to provide ultra-low latency and support the I/O required by high-density development and demanding production workloads. Production Network Services In HP Helion Rack, the HP FlexFabric XG-2QSFP+ Switch is used for connecting your cloud s production traffic to the external public network such as a company s intranet, or the public Internet in the case of public cloud provider. The HP FF XG-2QSFP+ Switch is a cost-effective, high-density, ultra-low-latency, Light Layer-3, top-of-rack (ToR) switch, ideally suited for deployment at the server access layer in large enterprise data centers. It provides 40GbE uplinks for north/south traffic and 10GbE for east/west production traffic. If a fully populated 42U scale-out HP Helion Rack solution configuration is desired, the HP FlexFabric QSFP+ Switch can be selected as an option. It is a high-density, ultra-low-latency, spine and top-of-rack (ToR) switch, ideally suited for deployment at the aggregation or server access layer in large enterprise data centers. Using this optional switch will provide the additional ports to support a fully scaled-out compute-centric HP Helion Rack, as well as reduce packet overhead and improve total throughput when VXLAN is supported in the switch instead of at the packet level. Management Network Services The HP G-4XG-2QFP+ Switch provides the backbone for HP Helion Rack management communications for IPMI and HP Integrated Lights-out (HP ilo) management needs. This 1Gb IPMI network is used by Ironic to control the state of the servers, performing such activities as remotely powering servers on and off during baremetal deployment. All undercloud and overcloud servers ilo ports are connected to this switch. Each connected switch port is configured as untagged for the IPMI VLAN ID. And each server has a static ilo IP on this network. For more information on the HP Helion OpenStack network topology used in the HP Helion Rack solution, see the HP Helion Rack Solution Architecture document. 6

7 A common architecture for manageability and scalability HP Helion Rack s use of HP ProLiant DL Gen9 servers across the board simplifies the manageability of the hardware platform. A single tool, HP ilo, can be used to update and manage all servers supporting the Seed VM, UnderCloud, OverCloud, compute hosts, and Swift and Cinder back-ends. The HP ilo Management Engine is a complete set of embedded management features supporting the lifecycle of the server, from initial deployment, through ongoing management, to service alerting. Open application programming interfaces (APIs) allow you to integrate HP Helion Rack with your existing management tools to simplify cloud management and reduce your costs. Scalability is simple and seamless with the common architecture that eliminates integration and compatibility issues. In addition to scaling up within each server (processor, memory, or storage), the HP Helion Rack configuration fills only 22U of the 42U, so the remaining 20U can be filled with scale-out compute and storage to meet your specific requirements. The following table outlines the maximum scalability for each component, with a maximum of 100 compute and storage nodes across multiple racks within a single HP Helion OpenStack cloud management plane. Note Please consult HP Helion Professional Services for assistance in scaling storage and network configurations and topology for the solution across multiple racks to ensure it meets your requirements.

8 Use case considerations and best practices HP Helion Rack has been architected to meet the technical requirements of the three most critical cloud use cases. Ensuring the technical needs of all three uses cases are met is key for the long-term viability and success of a private cloud solution as they interrelate and support each other. Private cloud solutions that do not fully meet the technical requirements of all three uses cases leave a painful gap in IT s ability to meet the needs of development and business teams consuming their applications in production. This gap often translates to escalating dissatisfaction and management costs for the solution. HP Helion Rack provides a complete range of required developer services to accelerate cloud-native application development along with the rapid provisioning of high-density compute development and test environments. It supports the entire cloud-native application lifecycle from development through deployment, while keeping IT in control of security and compliance requirements and meeting the demand for a performance-tuned production infrastructure. HP Helion Rack is optimized for the following use cases: Develop and deliver cloud native applications In order to compete successfully, new applications and services must be delivered faster with built-in portability to deploy across hybrid cloud environments in a way that makes the most sense for the business. More than 40 percent of cloud developers are developing applications from within a private cloud. More than 60 percent of these estimate time savings of 20 percent or more. 2 These time savings translate to both more efficient and effective development, and faster overall delivery for the business. HP Helion Rack integrates PaaS as part of the private cloud solution with HP Helion Development Platform. It provides easy access to the set of services and tools developers need for each challenging aspect of cloud-native application development. It provides these in an open development environment to avoid lock-in while maximizing innovation. Portability is provided by support for the industry leading open-source technologies of Cloud Foundry software, Docker container technology, and OpenStack software.

HP Helion Development Platform provides sample code, best practices, API documentation, downloads of libraries, and CLI tool sets to jumpstart development. Integration of HP Helion Development Platform with HP Helion OpenStack provides a single platform delivering both IaaS and PaaS. Lower overhead and easier administration for IT professionals. HP Helion Rack uses the number one servers in the industry for high-density performance to run the maximum amount of development VMs at the best performance. The HP ProLiant DL360 Gen9 Server has achieved the number one 2P performance and number one overall performance/power results on the SPECvirt_sc2013 benchmark. Forty percent better system performance with dual 18-core Haswell processors and HP DDR4 SmartMemory. 3 Fourteen percent throughput at DDR4-2133, better performance compared to non-hp servers with DDR4. HP Helion Rack includes three HP ProLiant DL380 Gen9 Servers configured for VSA block storage, in a high-availability architecture, to address the database storage needs of cloud applications being developed. For more information on HP Helion Development Platform technical capabilities, see: docs.hpcloud.com/helion/devplatform/. Accelerate application development and testing Nearly 97 percent of cloud developers extend at least some of their cloud applications to mobile clients, and nearly 39 percent of cloud developers report that more than half of their cloud applications are targeted at mobile or wireless client devices. 4 To meet constantly changing requirements for mobile cloud applications and other continuous software development processes, IT needs infrastructure that can be rapidly provisioned to keep pace with demand. This includes the ability to rapidly provision production quality infrastructure to support iterative releases. This is on the critical path of IT to enable developers to create and deploy the cloud applications your business needs without having to wait for infrastructure. The following table outlines the challenges enterprises must address when deploying a private cloud to fully accelerate application development and testing, and how the combined technical capabilities of HP Helion Rack addresses them: Challenges of accelerating development and test in private clouds Balance speed and flexibility to meet different developer needs Deployment and management of cloud management or open source code HP Helion Rack technical capabilities HP Helion OpenStack enables IT admins to quickly provision infrastructure services to match needs in minutes via a GUI interface. Factory build and onsite installation of HP Helion OpenStack by HP experts is included as part of solution deployment.

Integration of IaaS and PaaS for lower overhead and easier administration by IT professionals, enabling them to deploy a development environment from the same console they use to manage their HP Helion OpenStack infrastructure. Internal usage reporting, cloud operational monitoring (Icinga), and centralized logging for monitoring cloud health (Log stash, Elastic Search) including detection and self-healing capabilities. Reduced learning curve and costs with easier deployment and open API support to integrate with existing infrastructure and management tools. HP Helion OpenStack enables your infrastructure services to be easily moved, delivered, and integrated across public, private, and hosted/managed environments based on the business need. HP Helion Rack is based on the common, extensible architecture of OpenStack software to keep you in control of costs and innovations for your cloud, its integrations, and add-ons with no vendor lock-in. The integrated HP ProLiant DL Gen9 server platform and networking of HP Helion Rack is pre-configured to support both high-density development/test workloads, as well as the performance quality needs of production workloads as applications are rapidly released: Fourteen percent throughput at DDR4-2133, better performance compared to non-hp servers with DDR4 Workload-optimized 12 Gb SAS controllers The HP FlexFabric 5700 networking switch enables faster application response time Broker internal private cloud services for demanding cloud-native workloads With data volumes growing exponentially, Big Data analytic workloads need on-time infrastructure that can also meet other demanding performance requirements such as availability in order to get the insights that can deliver business results. According to research completed in 2H14, 33 percent of enterprises are targeting Big Data analytics for deployment on converged systems within the next 12 months, and 84 percent are targeting business intelligence (BI) workloads for private cloud environments in In addition, 39 percent of businesses are targeting database workloads for deployment on converged systems within the next 12 months. 6 In deploying a private cloud to meet the needs of developers and the cloud-native application workloads they create, a key requirement is infrastructure that is flexible to handle varying workload requirements. This enables the cloud to be responsive and agile to the full range of workload demands that developers place on it over time, delivering the needed performance for more demanding, higher priority workloads for both development and production cycles. Many of these cloud-native workloads also have security and compliance requirements that must be met due to the data used in the analysis process or stored in the databases. These are requirements that public cloud services have difficulty meeting due to the range of security and compliance policies or performance needs that may be required across the workloads or data. The HP Helion Rack solution has been architected to meet these needs with a combination of optimized infrastructure capabilities, configurations, and the integrated software capabilities. 5 TBR, Private Cloud Customer Research, 2H14 6 TBR, Converged Infrastructure Global Landscape, July
