FusionStorage Block supports the following scenarios for software installation: Xen/KVM virtualization scenarios, VMware/Hyper-V virtualization scenarios, and Linux physical server scenarios.

KVM Virtualization Scenarios

KVM virtualization includes the following scenarios in follow-up installation: FusionSphere virtualization (FusionCompute), FusionSphere cloud (FusionCloud).

Figure 2-1 shows the converged deployment mode in KVM scenarios, and Figure 2-2 shows the separated deployment mode.


This document only covers FusionSphere virtualization suite (FusionCompute) in separated deployment mode. For converged deployment, see the FusionCube product documents.

VMware/Microsoft Hyper-V Virtualization Scenarios

When FusionStorage Block connects to VMware or Microsoft Hyper-V, FSA cannot be directly deployed on a host. Instead, you need to create a control virtual machine (CVM) to deploy FSA.Figure 2-3 shows the converged deployment mode, and Figure 2-4 shows the separated deployment mode.

VBS provides SCSI or iSCSI interfaces for upper-layer applications or VMs. OSD manages disks and provides cluster capabilities, such as data replication and rebuilding.

Linux Physical Server Scenarios

You can choose to or not to integrate hardware and software, and the items to be installed are different. However, no matter hardware and software are integrated or not, converged deployment and separated deployment are the same. Figure 2-5 shows the converged deployment mode, and Figure 2-6 shows the separated deployment mode.
