Applications are getting more complex. Demand to develop faster is ever-increasing. This puts stress on infrastructure, IT teams, and processes. To be successful in this new business climate, IT organizations must adapt quickly and developers need to be more effective, efficient, and agile. Container application platforms combine agile development methods, cloud technologies, and coordinated processes to help organizations become more productive and responsive across multiple environments. They provide pre-built and packaged developer tools, runtimes, and automation for faster feedback and implementation cycles. Developers can focus on rapid, highquality development — using familiar tools — while production teams can concentrate on quickly delivering new services and products to market.
As the demand for more IT agility continues to grow, many enterprises are compelled by the benefits of containers, but struggle to find the right path to containerization for their organization. The Automate Your Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform Deployment on HPE ProLiant Servers with Ansible Tower and HPE OneView solution is a fully integrated container offering that is ideal for enterprise deployments. With a validated deployment architecture, this secure solution improves workflows and gives organizations access to the latest cloud technologies without the overhead costs associated with running virtual machines. In a dense landscape of deployment possibilities, the Automate Your Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform Deployment on HPE ProLiant Servers with Ansible Tower and HPE OneView architecture provides a less risky solution proven to simplify IT.
