This IBM® Blueprint is intended to facilitate the deployment of IBM Storage for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform by using detailed hardware specifications to build a system. It describes the associated parameters for configuring persistent storage within a Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment. To complete the tasks, you should understand Red Hat OpenShift, IBM Storage, the IBM block storage Container Storage Interface (CSI) driver and the IBM Spectrum Scale CSI driver.
