Red Hat OpenShift on Bare Metal

OpenShift on Bare Metal Deployment Guide (0.1.0)

NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0 or later

Follow the steps outlined in the Installing on bare metal section of the RedHat OpenShift documentation.

NVIDIA AI Enterprise 2.0 requires OpenShift Container Platform Version 4.9+

The OpenShift stack is shown below which leverages the NVIDIA Operators to accelerate each node. Load balancing, autoscaling inferencing requests, and simplifying scaling out of training jobs make OpenShift ideal for production and the final stages in the AI development lifecycle. Additionally, OpenShift includes the same software stack that the NVIDIA GPU Operator exposes metrics to, called Prometheus. This means GPU metrics can be easily visualized via Grafana dashboards.


With the OpenShift command-line interface (CLI), the oc command, you can create applications and manage OpenShift Container Platform projects from a terminal. The OpenShift CLI is ideal in the following situations:

  • Working directly with project source code

  • Scripting OpenShift Container Platform operations

  • Managing projects while restricted by bandwidth resources and the web console is unavailable

You can install the OpenShift CLI (oc) either by downloading the binary or by using an RPM. Follow the instruction for Getting Started with the OpenShift CLI.
