What is OpenShift Enterprise?
OpenShift Enterprise is a cloud computing Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) designed for on-premise or private cloud deployments. OpenShift Enterprise provides developers and IT organizations with an auto-scaling cloud application platform for quick application deployment on secure and scalable resources having minimal configuration and management headaches.
Why OpenShift Enterprise?
Because IT organizations may have requirements around security, data privacy, compliance, and/or governance, OpenShift Enterprise allows enterprise to:
- Implement a Private PaaS that they can control and manage within the constraints of their enterprise standards and requirements
- Receive the benefits of enhanced developer productivity, streamlined application service delivery and an elastic, on-demand cloud platform.
In addition, with OpenShift Enterprise, organizations can be confident they won't get locked into a proprietary solution that can often prove to be incompatible with other technologies and/or be costly to maintain and upgrade.
|Polyglot—Multiple Languages||Includes built-in support for Java, Ruby, Python, PHP, and Perl. This provides developers with the ability to choose the most appropriate programming languages based on their own skills or the nature of the programming tasks.|
|Easy and Quick Application Development||Using either the web console, command-line tooling, or Eclipse-based IDE, a developer simply requests an application instance from OpenShift Enterprise. This instantiates the application in the supporting cloud and provides necessary access informaton to the developer so they can immediately begin coding.|
|Multiple interaction models||Provides multiple interaction models with the PaaS enabling developers to use a rich set of command-line tools, a powerful multi-device web console, or an Eclipse-based Integrated Development Environment with JBoss Developer Studio.|
|Auto-scaling||Enables applications to be scaled automatically to handle increased traffic and demand on the applications.|
|Application portability||Built with standard language and middleware runtimes such that any application written on OpenShift Enterprise can easily be moved to another environment that supports the same languages, which prevents lock-in.|
|Open source||Allows adopters to control implementation and doesn’t restrict them to the technology of a specific vendor. This provides visibility into the technology on which they’re basing their business. Open source also enables users to collaborate with communities and companies to help drive innovation.|
|Choice of Cloud Infrastructure||Designed for users to choose their choice of infrastructure, OpenShift Enterprise is deployed on top of and run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). There are no other specific requirement for the infrastructure layer. To that end, OpenShift Enterprise customers have a choice to run it on top of: public, private or hybrid cloud infrastructure. This gives IT the freedom to deploy OpenShift Enterprise in a way that best fits within existing infrastructure|
