Supermicro® Total Solution for Canonical with Kubernetes Containers


Supermicro and Canonical have partnered to deliver solutions that feature Kubernetes containers.

This solution is built and validated with Supermicro SuperServers, SuperStorage systems, and Supermicro Ethernet switches that are optimized for performance and designed to provide the highest levels of reliability, quality and scalability.

The Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes (CDK) is pure upstream Kubernetes tested across the widest range of clouds — from public clouds to private data centers, from bare metal to virtualized infrastructure. Canonical also provides a rich ecosystem of tools, libraries, services, modern metrics, and monitoring tools to make CDK easy to consume so you can innovate faster.



Supermicro + Canonical Kubernetes Certified Platforms

Build your Kubernetes container solution with Supermicro and Canonical.



Highlights

  • Validated reference architectures
  • Certified components
  • Scale out – One rack to many racks
  • Greenest Servers for the Cloud – Save hundreds of dollars per server
  • Lowest Cost - Best Performance / Watt / $ / ft2
  • Start as a pro by leveraging expertize support and services

Enterprise support for Canonical Distribution of Kubernetes is provided by Canonical in partnership with Supermicro whereby customers gain access to a global pool of knowledge & expertise. The partnership offers a Discovery and Design Service - together, we design your infrastructure to the required size and specifications.

Networking Options (with 10, 25, or 40GB Data Switches)

Standard configurations include two types of Ethernet switches - one for consolidation of management/IPMI traffic and another for use in networking data traffic. The management switch is common to all three system options. The data switch options range from a 10Gbps switch at the "Value" option, to a 25Gbps switch for the “Balanced” option, and a 40Gbps switch in the "Performance" option.

1 - The 10 GbE Data switch and 40 GbE Data switch options require a Cumulus OS for all switches in the solution. The Cumulus OS licenses for both the data and management switches are obtained through Supermicro using the provided SKUs.
2 - The 25 GbE Data switch option requires the Supermicro (SMIS) OS for all switches in the solution. The SMIS OS for the management switch is obtained using the provided SKU. The SMIS OS for the data switch is included with the switch.
3 - Cumulus Linux is a powerful open network operating system that allows you to automate, customize and scale: www.cumulusnetworks.com/products/cumulus-linux/
