AI/ML on Red Hat OpenShift

Copy URL

AI/ML on Red Hat® OpenShift®  accelerates AI/ML workflows and the delivery of AI-powered intelligent applications with self-managed Red Hat OpenShift, or our AI/ML cloud service.


Red Hat OpenShift includes key capabilities to enable machine learning operations (MLOps) in a consistent way across datacenters, public cloud computing, and edge computing.

By applying DevOps and GitOps principles, organizations automate and simplify the iterative process of integrating machine learning models into software development processes, production rollout, monitoring, retraining, and redeployment for continued prediction accuracy. 

A multi-phase process to obtain the power of large volumes and a variety of data, abundant compute, and open source machine learning tools to build intelligent applications.

Data scientists are primarily responsible for ML modeling to ensure the selected model continues to provide the highest prediction accuracy. 

The key challenges data scientists face are:

  • Selecting & deploying the right ML tools (ex. Apache Spark, Jupyter notebook TensorFlow, PyTorch, etc.)
  • Complexities and time required to train, test, select, and retrain the ML model that provides the highest prediction accuracy
  • Slow execution of modeling and inferencing tasks because of lack of hardware acceleration
  • Repeated dependency on IT operations to provision and manage infrastructure
  • Collaborating with data engineers and software developers to ensure input data hygiene, and successful ML model deployment in app dev processes

Red Hat® OpenShift® is an integrated application platform for managing the AI/ML lifecycle across hybrid cloud environments and the edge. By providing self-service access to collaborative workflows, intensive computation power (GPUs), and streamlined operations, OpenShift simplifies the delivery of AI solutions consistently and at scale. 

Red Hat OpenShift AI

Red Hat OpenShift AI provides tools across the full lifecycle of AI/ML experiments and models for data scientists and developers of intelligent applications. It provides a fully supported sandbox in which to rapidly develop, train, and test machine learning (ML) models in the public cloud before deploying in production.

Empower data scientists

  • Self-service, consistent, cloud experience for data scientists across the hybrid cloud
  • Empower data scientists with the flexibility and portability to use the containerized ML tools of their choice to quickly build, scale, reproduce, and share ML models.
  • Use the most relevant ML tools via Red Hat certified Kubernetes Operators for both self-managed and our AI cloud service option.
  • Eliminate dependency on IT to provision infrastructure for iterative, compute-intensive ML modeling tasks.
  • Eliminate "lock-in" concerns with any particular cloud provider, and their menu of ML tools.
  • Tight integration with CI/CD tools allows ML models to be quickly deployed iteratively, as needed.

Accelerate compute-intensive ML modeling jobs

Integrations with popular hardware accelerators such as NVIDIA GPUs via Red Hat certified GPU operator means that OpenShift can seamlessly meet the high compute resource requirements to help select the best ML model providing the highest prediction accuracy, and ML inferencing jobs as the model experiences new data in production.

Develop intelligent apps

OpenShift’s built-in  DevOps capabilities enable MLOps to speed up delivery of AI-powered applications and simplify the iterative process of integrating ML models and continued redeployment for prediction accuracy.    

Extending OpenShift DevOps automation capabilities to the ML lifecycle enables collaboration between data scientists, software developers, and IT operations so that ML models can be quickly integrated into the development of intelligent applications. This helps boost productivity, and simplify lifecycle management for ML powered intelligent applications.

  • Building from the container model images registry with OpenShift Build.
  • Continuous, iterative development of ML model powered intelligent applications with OpenShift Pipelines.
  • Continuous deployment automation for ML models powered intelligent applications with OpenShift GitOps.
  • An image repository to version model container images and microservices with Red Hat Quay.

OpenShift is helping organizations across various industries to accelerate business and mission critical initiatives by developing intelligent applications in the hybrid cloud. Some example use cases include fraud detection, data driven health diagnostics, connected cars, oil and gas exploration, automated insurance quotes, and claims processing.

Transformative AI/ML use cases are occurring across healthcare, financial services, telecommunications, automotive, and other industries. Red Hat has cultivated a robust partner ecosystem to offer complete solutions for creating, deploying, and managing ML and deep learning models for AI-powered intelligent applications.
