Compute or data plane

The HPE Telco Core Blueprint compute or data plane consists of the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (RHOCP) worker node.

The compute plane or data plane holds the OpenShift Kubernetes-based cluster of worker nodes where all application containers are deployed to run. The worker nodes allow the scheduler to allocate containers and pods, and maintain a reasonable workload distribution by advertising their resources and resource utilization. Each worker node has a CRI-O Kubelet service, which is the container runtime responsible to manage the lifecycle of a container.

Every compute or worker machine in the OpenShift Container Platform 4.3 cluster uses RHCOS as the operating system.
