Key DevOps solutions:

  • Red Hat® OpenShift® is a hybrid cloud application platform powered by Kubernetes that delivers a consistent experience for operations and DevOps teams alike across use cases. Practice agile development and DevSecOps methodologies with on-premise, hybrid cloud, and edge architectures for a unified experience.
  • OpenShift allows organizations to employ continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) to automate the build, test, and deployment stages of applications across on-premises and public cloud platforms. 
  • Red Hat Ansible® Automation Platform automates the services and applications in your DevOps toolchain, leading to more reliable deployments. Once one person on your team learns how to do something, they can capture their solution in an Ansible Playbook and enable everyone to use it.
  • OpenShift and Red Hat Trusted Software Supply Chain help teams build security into the software development life cycle by ensuring security controls are integrated early and often, from development to software delivery and runtime. This helps create a trusted software supply chain without inhibiting deployment velocity.
  • OpenShift GitOps enables DevOps teams to implement GitOps workflows. Updates and changes are pushed through declarative code, automating infrastructure and deployment requirements and helping organizations to realize faster, more secure, scalable software development.
  • Red Hat’s robust partner ecosystem and integrated solutions provide flexibility for developers to choose the tools and apps that work best for them.
