A container platform is software that allows you to provision, manage, and scale container-based applications. Red Hat OpenShift is a container application development and hosting platform that automates the tedious management tasks so you can focus on development and writing apps to meet business goals.
Whether it’s Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform (on-premise), Red Hat OpenShift Online (public cloud service), or Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated (hosted service), you have an award-winning container platform that helps get your next big idea to market before your competition.
Accelerate business innovation
Go from concept to production faster. Give your developers and operations teams the tools they need to iterate faster and reduce time between application releases.
Enable DevOps and microservices applications
Develop, deploy, and automate modular, reliable, and serviceable applications across your infrastructure—regardless of the application's architecture.
Enterprise-grade security and scalability
The foundation of OpenShift is the Red Hat Enterprise Linux® operating system which provides stability and security for your applications.
Hybrid cloud ready
Respond to demand intelligently across private and public clouds. Handle peak demand without downtime or manual intervention.
OpenShift is a complete container application platform that provides all aspects of the application development process in one consistent solution that can span across multiple infrastructure footprints.
OpenShift integrates all of the architecture, processes, platforms, and services needed to empower development and operations teams. Now they can create their ideal cloud computing service tailored for applications, integration, or mobile.
Easily scale applications to handle increased traffic and demand. With Red Hat OpenShift, you can deploy an application with scaling and high availability enabled by default.Read the datasheet
We built Red Hat OpenShift with standards in mind. Any application written on OpenShift can easily be moved to another environment that supports the same languages, preventing vendor dependency and freeing you from lock-in.
Built on fully open source technologies, you control your particular implementation. You aren't restricted to the technology and business roadmap of a specific vendor—so you have visibility into the technology on which you're basing your business. Open source offers another benefit: the ability to collaborate with other communities and companies to further innovation in areas that are important to you.
Red Hat OpenShift is built on proven, reliable Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux—trusted by thousands of organizations on millions of systems around the world for mission-critical workloads—and Red Hat JBoss® Middleware.See a complete list of Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform features
