What is Red Hat OpenShift
Red Hat OpenShift brings together tested and trusted services to reduce the friction of developing, modernizing, deploying, running, and managing applications. Built on Kubernetes, it delivers a consistent experience across public cloud, on-premise, hybrid cloud, or edge architecture.
Choose a self-managed or fully managed solution. No matter how you run it, OpenShift helps teams focus on the work that matters.
Work with traditional, modernized, and cloud-native applications
Whether you're building new applications or modernizing existing ones, OpenShift supports the most demanding workloads including AI/ML, edge, and more. Automate deployment and life-cycle management with our vast ecosystem of technology partners.
Application development and delivery
Application development and delivery
Streamline workflows to get to production faster, including built-in Jenkins pipelines and our source-to-image technology to go straight from application code to container.
We struggled to deliver high-quality digital marketing services at the pace and cost we wanted. We’re now a very different organization, with a modern mindset, and we credit Red Hat as a big contributor to that success.
Modernize existing apps
Modernize existing apps
Bring together development, operations, and security teams under a single platform to modernize existing applications while accelerating new cloud-native app dev and delivery.

Accelerate AI/ML workflows and the delivery of AI-powered intelligent applications with self-managed Red Hat OpenShift, or our AI/ML cloud service.
Working with great colleagues at Red Hat means we can use new tools like natural language processing and machine learning to develop new insights from that unstructured data that transform healthcare.
Extend application services to remote locations and analyze inputs in real time with Red Hat OpenShift’s edge computing capabilities.
