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.

Openshift is designed fairly intuitive way, so its not overly complex to use, however the initial deployment could be challening for bare metal deployments, where customer have to provision and bring in their nodes , work on networking side, which could be at times error prone and can lead to some misconfiguration.

The virtualization part takes some getting used to it you are coming from a more traditional hypervisor. Customization options are not intuitive to these users. The process should be more clear. Perhaps a guide to Openshift Virtualization for users of RHV, VMware, etc. would ease this transition into the new platform.

As I said before, the obserability is one of the weakest point of OpenShift and that has a lot to do with usability. The Kibana console is not fully integrated with OpenShift console and you have to switch from tab to tab to use it. Same with Prometheus, Jaeger and Grafan, it's a "simple" integration but if you want to do complex queries or dashboards you have to go to the specific console

It is easy to understand. Gives our team freedom to focus on the quality of our coding and not worry too much about build and deployment which honestly can be a headache for some of us. Also, customer support is fast and responsive so we don't have to wait for weeks for issues to get fixed.
