What is Red Hat OpenShift ?
Red Hat® OpenShift® is a container platform for Kubernetes that can automate the provisioning, management and scaling of applications so that you can focus on writing the code for your next big idea. Red Hat OpenShift lets you manage hybrid cloud and multicloud container deployments.
What is included in Red Hat OpenShift?
Red Hat includes supported runtimes for popular languages/frameworks/databases.
1. Built on the foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux
Red Hat OpenShift ships with Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® CoreOS for the Kubernetes master, and supports Red Hat Enterprise Linux for worker nodes. Red Hat OpenShift also supports standard Docker and CRI-O runtimes for containers managed by Kubernetes.
2. Certified Enterprise Kubernetes
Red Hat OpenShift includes a fully-compliant instance of upstream Kubernetes, hardened with hundreds of fixes that address defect, security, and performance issues for upstream Kubernetes in every release. It is tested with dozens of technologies and is a robust tightly-integrated platform supported over a 9-year lifecycle.
3. Cluster services
Automated installation on hybrid cloud infrastructures is a core Red Hat OpenShift capability. OpenShift delivers immutable installation and updates across the platform powered by Kubernetes Operators. Red Hat OpenShift includes software-defined networking and validates additional common networking solutions. OpenShift also includes support for virtualization, managing containers and VMs side-by-side in a single control plane.
4. Platform services
The application platform you choose needs to make it easier to manage workloads. That means it must support key cloud-native services that developers rely on, such as Service Mesh, Serverless and Pipelines, are available to install on-demand with Red Hat OpenShift.
5. Application services
Developers value choice. They want to choose how they build and deploy applications, so you need to support the languages, database engines, and the runtimes that bring their code to life. With Red Hat OpenShift, you can honor those choices without compromising availability or security, even as new applications are deployed across a full range of cloud and on-prem infrastructures.
6. Data services
Data is a critical business asset. Efficiently ingesting, storing, transforming, analyzing, and applying the power of AI/ML to data can help achieve key business insights. OpenShift serves as the self-service platform for developers, data engineers, data scientists, etc. to leverage the data services tooling of their choice and speed up achieving data driven insights.
7. Red Hat OpenShift plans
Flexibility is the open source advantage, and the flexibility of Red Hat OpenShift starts with where you deploy it. Red Hat OpenShift is ready to deploy in any environment, wherever your workloads live.
You can deploy Red Hat OpenShift as a managed service on your preferred cloud provider for a seamless experience on Azure, AWS, IBM Cloud, or Google Cloud or, for greater control, choose a self-managed deployment of Red Hat OpenShift on any private or public cloud, on bare metal, or at the edge. Read our sizing and subscription guide to better understand the subscription model for self-managed Red Hat OpenShift offerings.
Develop applications without worrying about infrastructure, giving you the freedom to write code your way.
Deliver applications on time and on budget, with less operational complexity and more flexibility to respond to change.
Empower developers and IT teams to rapidly deliver the experiences customers demand. And that your business needs to compete.
