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.

  • Though Red Hat OpenShift is fairly expense, it has actually saved us money by making it super easy to move our containerized workloads into it without any pain.
  • With it's projects (namespaces), it's easy to host multiple instances of the same application or container, but they each work individually as if they were seperate.
  • Developers find it easier to deploy and destroy their containers

  • When you talk about ROIs, I don't have any negative impacts I wanted to call out here. There is no negative impacts. In fact, it's all positive impacts what we set as our milestones towards achieving our goals, towards achieving our greater vision. Red Hat OpenShift has got a big role in it and it is certainly helping us.

  • That is a complicated question and one that's not easy for me to answer. There's a lot of factors that go into all of the stuff that we just don't have an easy way of measuring. And we realize that while we're implementing Red Hat OpenShift, we've tried to start measuring some of that stuff, but we don't have a baseline to go on. So it's hard to say. What I can tell you is general experience with the platform has been extremely positive from the development aspect. Teams have been very, very happy with the speed at which they're able to do stuff. They've been happy with that. The way it works in one environment is exactly the way it works in the next environment because we don't have configuration drift, that type of thing, and has had very positive impacts. But we didn't have a baseline to start with. So I can't talk about getting there faster or anything like that.
