Product Details

What is Red Hat OpenShift?

Red Hat® OpenShift® is a unified platform to build, modernize, and deploy applications at scale. It includes an enterprise-ready Kubernetes solution with a choice of deployment and consumption options to meet the needs of the business. OpenShift delivers a consistent experience across public cloud, on-premise, hybrid cloud, or edge architecture. It includes multiple advanced open source capabilities that are tested and integrated with the underlying certified Kubernetes environment, such as Red Hat OpenShift Serverless, Red Hat OpenShift Pipelines, and Red Hat OpenShift GitOps. Red Hat OpenShift gives users the choice of running cloud services or self-managed editions:

Cloud Services Editions
  • Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS: A turnkey application platform that provides a managed Red Hat OpenShift service running natively on Amazon Web Services (AWS) used by organizations to increase operational efficiency, refocus on innovation, and build, deploy, and scale applications.
  • Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift: Red Hat and Microsoft jointly engineer, manage, and support the platform, used by organizations to increase operational efficiency, refocus on innovation, and quickly build, deploy, and scale applications.
  • Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated: A managed Red Hat OpenShift offering on Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Google Cloud.
  • Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud: A managed Red Hat OpenShift cloud service that reduces operational complexity and helps organizations build and scale applications with the security of IBM Cloud.
Why choose Red Hat OpenShift cloud services?
Red Hat OpenShift cloud services automate the deployment and management of Red Hat OpenShift clusters, so organizations can build, deploy and scale applications quickly without having to incorporate and learn new technologies and processes, or manage integrations. It also helps users to:
  • Reduce security & compliance risk through 24x7 global SRE coverage.
  • Limit operational and staffing dependencies attached to particular providers.
  • Reduce integration bottlenecks with repeatability and consistency for multi-cloud deployments.

Self-Managed Editions
Why choose self-managed Red Hat OpenShift?
Red Hat OpenShift self-managed editions provide more control and flexibility over OpenShift deployments. Self-managed editions allow deployment on any private or public cloud, on bare metal, or at the edge. In addition, long-term support provides flexible life cycles providing the option to choose when to upgrade to the next version of Red Hat OpenShift.

We use ARO (Azure Red Hat OpenShift) since we already have a very large Azure presence, and the process to deploy the cluster was so easy that we've already asked ourselves why we didn't use it sooner. We've struggled in the past with Kubernetes clusters that were improperly deployed by a third party, but with ARO, we're comfortable knowing it's deployed properly.

We are transitioning our system from Solaris to SELinux. Of course it makes sense that we are going to renew our OpenShift subscription to use the tools and be more compliant with the FAA's preferred software security standards, which are heavily supported by redhat.

It's a great product that serves a lot of our use cases. It was a pain to get installed because of permissions. Took more time and had to be done manually. This is why I gave it a 6. Once deployed it is so nice to have and people have been able to use it anyway they need it.

For prospective applications OpenShift platform is first choice. OpenShift is constantly innovating and proposing new products or updated services and conditions, especially from developers point of view. To put some time and effort at the beginning (research and development) for reading documentation, making diagrams and the rest is OpenShift auto-'s (auto-scale, auto-upgrade). Never had technical issues with OpenShift platform

Leverage OpenShift Online constantly at both the free and paid tiers. While AWS is convenient, it often brings more administration than I want to deal with for a quick application (i.e. Drupal or Wordpress blog). OpenShift also simplifies the DNS registration and ability to share application environments with team members.
