The features for this initial release present DSC SWe instances (VMs) inside an OpenStack cloud environment. The DSC SWe (on OpenStack) builds on the existing DSC SWe using the same architecture, operating system, and application feature-sets while augmenting Operation Administration and Management (OAM) components for cloud deployments.
The minimum supported OpenStack version is Red Hat Newton. See https://releases.openstack.org/ for the official OpenStack release list.
Consider the following for this document:
- The VM (CPU Type) is either Management and Routing or Routing. Two Management CPUs are supported on each system.
- No Application or Custom VMs (CPU types) are supported.
The SS7 Signaling Database (SDA) and Diameter Database (DB) are not supported for this release.
All system configuration activities for this platform are executed using the Web User Interface (UI) with the exception of the following:
- licensing configuration (see Installation Procedures)
- initial configuration (see Installation Procedures)
- disaster recovery (see Disaster Recovery)
These tasks are executed using a text-based user interface (referred to in this document as Menu UI).
For information about the Web UI and the Menu UI, see the Web UI and Menu UI Guide.
System provisioning can be performed using the Web UI, TL1, SNMP, XML, and REST API.
This section provides you with a high-level operational flow that describes the key tasks for installing and configuring the DSC SWe (on OpenStack).
