The composability feature, introduced in Red Hat OpenStack Platform 10 director, enables Red Hat OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Ceph Storage deployments to run both Ceph object storage device (OSD) and Nova compute services on the same server. This is known as hyper-converged infrastructure (HCI). HCI deployments appeal to telco customers interested in putting dense low footprint OpenStack clusters on the edge of their network for network functions virtualization (NFV) applications. How do these systems handle NFV workloads? How should they be tuned, and how should director be used to automate such deployments? In this session, we'll answer these questions and share workload testing results.
