Red Hat OpenShift for ISV partners

Letzte Aktualisierung: 28. August 2017


Cloud, mobility, big data, and agile and DevOps approaches are transforming the IT industry and creating challenges for almost every independent software vendor (ISV). New markets and business models are emerging as competition, and disruptions suddenly materialize from new and unexpected sources. As a result, ISVs are under increasing pressure to innovate faster, go to market faster, and stay ahead of the competition — all at lower operational cost.

New technologies, like Kubernetes container orchestration and microservices, and methodologies, like agile and DevOps, offer the promise of streamlining and automating software product life cycles. However, your existing development environment might not have the flexibility, adaptability, and speed required to these environments.


Built on proven open source technologies, Red Hat® OpenShift is a Kubernetes-based container application platform that gives you the ability to modernize your development process and your products. You can deliver new features, accelerate the development processes on public, hybrid, and multicloud infrastructures, and maintain high quality of service (QoS) levels for managed services, Software-as-aService (SaaS), and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) delivery models.

The exceptional user experience and environment neutrality provided by Red Hat OpenShift simplifies your migration to DevOps. Your development teams can speed up development cycles and iterate faster with features like:

  • Automated provisioning that provides developers the flexibility they need while giving operations control over the entire environment.
  • Tools like automated application builds, deployments, scaling, health management, and more that make it easier for development and operations to develop, deliver, and manage apps for multiple delivery models.

Red Hat OpenShift makes it easy for you to quickly develop innovative solutions that simplify and strengthen your customers’ digital transformation efforts. Red Hat OpenShift lets your developers build cloud-native apps on a cloud-based container platform without having to worry about the inherent complexity of provisioning, managing, and scaling applications as customer demand changes. With much of the operations and management automated by Red Hat OpenShift, your developers have more time to focus on building new products and features that add value to your customers’ businesses.

Red Hat OpenShift is a polyglot PaaS that supports multiple languages, including JavaTM, Node.js, .NET, Ruby, Python, PHP, and more. It offers optimized workflows to help configure and deploy applications on any given framework, such as Spring Boot, Eclipse Vert.x, Node.js, and Red Hat Middleware, to help developers set up their development environments and start coding faster.

Red Hat OpenShift also features built-in integration with popular integrated development environments (IDEs), including Eclipse, Red Hat CodeReady Studio, and Titanium Studio, allowing your developers to work with the IDE with which they are most comfortable.


Linux® containers make it easy to package applications with their dependencies, accelerating application delivery. Standardizing on Linux containers lets developers develop and test their applications in environments that mirror production without having to deal with the complexity of managing the underlying infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift is built around a standardized container model powered by Red Hat application programming interfaces (APIs). Applications created on Red Hat OpenShift can easily run anywhere that supports docker, Kubernetes, or Atomic-formatted containers. Red Hat OpenShift allows you to develop apps across multiple cloud providers and private clouds, while allowing your partners and end customers to avoid vendor lock-in with any single infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift is built on the tested and trusted foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. It can run in any environment where Red Hat Enterprise Linux is supported, regardless of the underlying infrastructure. As containers become more widely adopted, Red Hat and its ISV partners can create new revenue streams by providing fully integrated, lightweight, container-based solutions.


The Red Hat ISV program lets you offer trusted, secure, and enterprise-grade applications, SaaS, PaaS, and Red Hat technology-based managed services to your customers. Premium support and joint customer resolution allow you to deliver high-quality services and support to your own customers. You also get access to training and enablement resources that help you successfully adopt a managed services business model.
