Red Hat OpenShift: System Requirements


Commvault recommends that the existing users of the Red Hat OpenShift VSA solution migrate their backup operations to the Kubernetes solution, to backup and restore additional containerized data types.

You can use the Virtualization solution in the Command Center to back up and restore applications that run in the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.

OpenShift Version

This solution requires Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform 3.9, 3.10, or 3.11.


Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform versions 4.2, 4.3, 4.4, and 4.5 are supported by the Kubernetes solution only.

Container Storage

This solution requires Red Hat Gluster Storage in converged or independent mode.

VSA Access Node (Proxy)

You can deploy the Virtual Server Agent on a physical or virtual machine that meets the following requirements:

  • Deployed in the OpenShift environment or externally.

  • Runs one of the following Linux operating systems:

    • Red Hat Linux 7.x or 8

    • CentOS 7.x or 8


      For RHEL 8 VMs, to install operating system packages that are required to enable automatic installation of Mono, register the VMs with Red Hat.

  • Has network access to the OpenShift master node.

  • Has SSH access to each GlusterFS endpoint.

  • Has glusterfs and gluster-fuse packages installed.
