Last week, Azure Red Hat OpenShift had some exciting announcements at the Red Hat Summit in Denver, Colorado. Ortec Finance, a leading global provider of technology and solutions for risk and return management, has built a cloud-native platform for solutions delivery using Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift. Read the announcement.

We also announced that Red Hat OpenShift AI is supported on Azure Red Hat OpenShift.

Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift new feature releases:

Alongside our presence at events, our teams have been busy adding new features to Azure Red Hat OpenShift. Learn about the releases below.

ARO support in Azure Terraform Provider

The AzureRM Terraform provider now supports managing Azure Red Hat OpenShift resources. Through this resource, you are able to leverage Infrastructure as Code approaches to managing the cluster. Hashicorp Terraform is an infrastructure-as-code tool that lets customers define infrastructure resources in human-readable configuration files that can be versioned, reused and shared.

Leveraging Infrastructure as code is a great way for customers to deploy ARO clusters at scale in a repeatable and consistent manner. Get started using the Terraform provider today.

Bring your own Network Security Groups

As your business upgrades its cloud technology, ensuring securing scaling of your environments is crucial. Red Hat and Microsoft are continuously adding features to meet your security needs in a consistent approach.  Customers will be able to attach their own NSGs that include both your organization’s security rules and ARO service rules. This will be applied to both master and worker subnets before installing ARO clusters with a flag indicating the presence of the NSGs. 

ARO Console text

Azure Monitor Signals

Customers will now be able to provide Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster Resource Health and integration with Azure Monitor Signals. Azure Monitor signals can be configured to generate alerts based on signals from Azure Red Hat OpenShift clusters. Read about it in the documentation
