      BU Priority Overview

      Enable installation and lifecycle support of OpenShift 4 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with VMs


      • Enable installation of OpenShift 4 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI) with VMs using platform agnostics with Assisted Installer.
      • OpenShift 4 on OCI (with VMs) can be updated that results in a cluster and applications that are in a healthy state when update is completed.
      • Telemetry reports back on clusters using OpenShift 4 on OCI for connected OpenShift clusters (e.g. platform=none using Oracle CSI).

      State of the Business

      Currently, we don't yet support OpenShift 4 on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI), and we know from initial attempts that installing OpenShift on OCI requires the use of a qcow (OpenStack qcow seems to work fine), networking and routing changes, storage issues, potential MTU and registry issues, etc.

      Execution Plans

      TBD based on customer demand.


      Why is this important

      • OCI is starting to gain momentum.
      • In the Middle East (e.g. Saudi Arabia), only OCI and Alibaba Cloud are approved hyperscalars.
