1 EXECUTIVE SUMMARY Intel Cloud Builder Guide Intel Xeon Processor-based Servers Red Hat* Cloud Foundations Intel Cloud Builder Guide: Cloud Design and Deployment on Intel Platforms Red Hat* Cloud Foundations AUDIENCE AND PURPOSE Intel Xeon Processor 5500 Series Intel Xeon Processor 5600 Series For cloud service providers, hosts, and enterprise IT organizations who are looking to build their own cloud infrastructure, the decision to use a cloud for the delivery of IT services is best done by starting with the knowledge and experience gained from previous work. The reference architecture outlines a private Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) cloud setup using Red Hat* Cloud Foundations on Intel Xeon series processor-based servers. Using the contents of the paper, which include detailed scripts and screen shots, should significantly reduce the learning curve for building and operating your first cloud computing infrastructure. Because the creation and operation of a cloud requires integration and customization to existing IT infrastructure and business requirements, we do not expect that the paper can be used as-is. For example, adaptation to an existing network and identification of management requirements are out of scope for the paper. Therefore, we expect that the user of the paper will make significant adjustments to the design to meet specific customer requirements. The paper is assumed to be a starting point for that journey.

2 Executive Summary: Intel Cloud Builder Guide for Red Hat* Cloud Foundations Executive Summary Cloud computing is a model that enables convenient, on-demand network access to a shared pool of configurable computing resources (e.g., networks, servers, storage, applications, and services) that can be rapidly provisioned and released with minimal management effort or service provider interaction. Red Hat and Intel collaborated to build a simple private cloud focused on providing IaaS using Red Hat software and Intel hardware. Figure 1 depicts our test bed configuration. RHN Satellite RHEV-M Provision Manage Red Hat* Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisors A single server 1 was selected to act as the storage server providing network file system/internet small computer system interface (NFS/iSCSI) to the rest of the environment, while eight servers ran Red Hat* Enterprise Virtualization hypervisors. 2 Red Hat* Network Satellite 3 ran on a server to provide fully automated bare-metal and virtual deployments, while the last server ran Red Hat* Enterprise Virtualization Manager. This environment is a highly simplified deployment based on the Red Hat Cloud Foundations Reference Architecture Edition One: Private IaaS Clouds document that can be accessed at center/reference_architecture.html. In the paper, we begin with the basic building blocks for an IaaS private cloud, and discuss areas for potential improvement in a more robust environment.

The result is an easy to deploy cloud that is manageable, scalable, and fault tolerant. With this cloud, we aimed to accomplish management through rich user interfaces and to use APIs for scripting purposes. We opted not to use any clustering technologies for the management systems in our simple test bed, however, in a production environment this is highly recommended. For full details on a complete robust deployment, refer to the Red Hat Cloud Foundations Reference Architecture Edition One: Private IaaS Clouds document. 4 Hardware Components Intel configured 11 systems: One storage server Two management servers Eight hypervisor servers Figure 2 shows the servers in our environment: Software Components The following software was used to construct our private IaaS cloud: Software Red Hat* Enterprise Linux Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Red Hat Network Satellite Version

3 Executive Summary: Intel Cloud Builder Guide for Red Hat* Cloud Foundations These components are described in the following sections. Red Hat* Enterprise Linux* Red Hat Enterprise Linux is the world s leading open source application platform. On one certified platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux offers a choice of: Applications thousands of certified ISV applications Deployment including standalone or virtual servers, cloud computing, or software appliances Hardware a wide range of certified platforms from the world s leading hardware vendors RHN Satellite RHEV-M Red Hat* Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisors We used Red Hat Enterprise Linux as the operating system for the storage server and Red Hat Network Satellite server. We also created several virtual machines and templates based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux is an end-to-end virtualization solution that is designed to enable pervasive datacenter virtualization and significantly enhance capital and operational efficiency. It includes a hypervisor based on kernelbased virtual machine (K) technology as well as management tools for both server and desktop deployments. is the ideal platform on which to build an internal or private cloud on Red Hat Enterprise Linux or Windows* virtual machines. consists of the following components: Manager: A feature-rich virtualization management system that provides advanced capabilities for hosts and guests, including high availability, live migration, storage management, a system scheduler, and more. Figure 2: Hardware Components Hypervisor: A modern hypervisor based on K 6 virtualization technology that can be deployed either as a standalone bare-metal hypervisor (included), or as Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5 and later (purchased separately) installed as a hypervisor host and managed through Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager. In our IaaS cloud, we used Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisor on eight servers and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization Manager on one server. Red Hat Network Satellite NFS Storage Red Hat Network Satellite is an easy-touse systems management platform for your growing Linux infrastructure. Built on open standards, Red Hat Network Satellite provides powerful systems administration capabilities that can manage, provision, and monitor large deployments. Red Hat Network Satellite allows you to manage many servers as easily as you would one. Red Hat Network Satellite makes Linux deployable, scalable, manageable, and consistent. It provides administrators with the tools to efficiently manage their systems, which lowers per-system deployment and management costs. It also offers superior security as it has a single centralized tool, secure connection policies for remote administration, and secure content. Use Red Hat Network Satellite to ensure that security fixes and configuration files are applied across your environment consistently. Red Hat Network Satellite uses the provisioning configuration tool Cobbler 7 extensively. Cobbler is a Linux installation server that allows for rapid setup of network installation environments. It binds and automates many associated Linux tasks, which eliminates the need for various commands and applications when one introduces new systems or changes existing ones. With a simple series of commands, network installs can 3

4 Executive Summary: Intel Cloud Builder Guide for Red Hat* Cloud Foundations be configured for pre-boot execution environments (PXE), re-installations, media-based net-installs, and virtualized installs (supporting Xen* and K). Red Hat Network Satellite is used to provision all bare-metal hypervisors for as well as for virtual machines. High Availability for Management Systems We implemented a basic IaaS private cloud with the software components listed above. This scenario may contain points of failure that can be addressed with additional configuration. RHN Satellite As shown in Figure 1, the management servers are deployed onto physical hardware. This means that if these systems were to fail, the management capabilities would cease until these systems are restored. However, the environment would continue to run any virtual machines and workloads. Only new management actions would not be possible. It should be noted that the hypervisors themselves are in a cluster, and when configured with power management, as we have done here, virtual machines are automatically highly available. To remedy this gap in the management servers, the servers can be installed as virtual machines. However, they must reside on a virtual infrastructure outside of. To accomplish this, a Red Hat cluster must be configured using two or more instances of Red Hat Enterprise Linux Advanced Platform. The management servers are installed as K virtual machines, and are implemented as active/ passive services. Figure 3 shows a deployment using two clustered systems running Red Hat Network Satellite and Manager as highly available virtual machines. For full details on this deployment scenario, refer to the Red Hat Cloud Foundations Reference Architecture Edition One: Private IaaS Clouds.8 Provision Manage Red Hat* Enterprise Virtualization Hypervisors RHEV-M RHEL K RHEL HA 1Gb Switch 10Gb Switch 1Gb Management Network 10Gb Data Network NFS Storage Figure 3: High Availability for and Red Hat Network Satellite 4
