About ManageIQ solution


#1

Hi,

I’m interested in ManageIQ solution and I have many concerns about it:

1- What are the hardware requirements in order to deploy ManageIQ?
2-What is the cloud infrastructure layers (Physical >> Virtual >> cloud service as hyper-v or RedHat cloud>> and on top is ManageIQ)?
3- Dose ManageIQ authenticate users with Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP?
4- Does ManageIQ manage hyper-v?
5- What are the requirements in order to deploy the solution?

Thank you,

Hi Monerah,

welcome to the community! Mind introducing yourself a bit? You’ve got some very specific questions so feel free to share some context with us.

I’m interested in ManageIQ solution and I have many concerns about it:

1- What are the hardware requirements in order to deploy ManageIQ?

The default virtual appliance is configured with 4CPUs and 6GB of memory. Depending on your setup, you may need anywhere from 1 appliance, to many.

We don’t have any scaling guides on the web site at the moment so it will be some trial and error. If you 're using CloudForms then Red Hat consulting can help.

2-What is the cloud infrastructure layers (Physical >> Virtual >> cloud service as hyper-v or RedHat cloud>> and on top is ManageIQ)?

Can you clarify the question?

3- Dose ManageIQ authenticate users with Microsoft Active Directory and LDAP?

Yes and yes.

4- Does ManageIQ manage hyper-v?

Yes, via SystemCenter VMM.

5- What are the requirements in order to deploy the solution?

Can you clarify?

Thank you @jprause for your help.

Thank you @geertj for your response.

So you mean that it depends on the available resources on host, or the maximum that can be provided is 4CPUs and 6GB of memory even if there are available resources on the host?

I mean the infrastructure that ManageIQ built on, for example:

Microsoft Azure solution is a layer that comes on the top of cloud servers (System center) where the system center manages the physical hosts.

Dose ManageIQ as Azure? Or it has different infrastructure?

For this question, Is there any specific network configurations , security, and licenses for the deployment?

More questions.

-Can you please tell me more about how to deal with ManageIQ from the administrator side? Does it requires any training or specific skills?

-Does ManageIQ compatible with visualization?

-Does it support the backup and failover of created VMs?

-Does it support patching VMs?

-Is there any counted issues with application compatibility?

Thank you,
