Deploying to OpenShift

For many organizations, a big part of DevOps’ appeal is software automation using infrastructure-as-code techniques. This book presents developers, architects, and infra-ops engineers with a more practical option. You’ll learn how a container-centric approach from OpenShift® can help your team deliver quality software through a self-service view of IT infrastructure.

Author Graham Dumpleton provides the knowledge you need to make the best use of the OpenShift container platform to deploy not only your cloud-native applications, but also more traditional stateful applications. Developers and administrators will learn how to run, access, and manage containers in OpenShift, including how to orchestrate them at scale.

  • Create a project and deploy pre-existing application container images

  • Build application container images from source and deploy them
  • Implement and extend application image builders
  • Use incremental and chained builds to accelerate build times
  • Automate builds by using a webhook to link OpenShift to a Git repository
  • Add configuration and secrets to the container as project resources
  • Make an application visible outside the OpenShift cluster
  • Manage persistent storage inside an OpenShift container
  • Monitor application health and manage the application lifecycle
