Red Hat OpenShift for developers

Copy URL

Develop applications without worrying about infrastructure. Red Hat® OpenShift® gives you the ability to build and deploy applications using the tools you want and has a single, consistent user experience. 

Red Hat OpenShift lets you choose the tooling and frameworks that help you deliver apps quickly and more securely in response to your organization’s needs. You’ll be able to work collaboratively with your IT operations team and use the latest technologies without compromising agility.

Kubernetes has become the standard control plane for containers and containerized applications. But Kubernetes was built for the needs of IT operations, not developers. 

In order for code to be deployed, developers need to be able to use the benefits of Kubernetes without being required to develop a platform skillset. Taking time from development cycles to learn, install, and manage those tools is not helping get the business apps to market. 

Red Hat OpenShift is designed so developers can deploy apps on Kubernetes without needing to learn Kubernetes.

As a developer, you need to stop changing how you work to fit the platform. With Red Hat OpenShift, you can truly automate once and run anywhere by developing on a Kubernetes platform instead of coding to the specifics of your existing infrastructures.

Regardless of the infrastructure, whether on-premise, in the public cloud, or hybrid, the Red Hat OpenShift interface remains the same. Get familiar with one application-centric UI that enables you to quickly build code, deploy containers, link services, and more.

Use what you love

Red Hat OpenShift provides commercial support for the languages, databases, and tooling you already use, while providing access to services, including public cloud services.

Streamlined delivery

Red Hat OpenShift includes everything you need to manage your development lifecycle: standardized workflows, support for multiple environments, continuous integration, release management, and more.

Use new technology

Red Hat OpenShift is extensible to emerging Kubernetes-based frameworks and technologies, making it possible for teams to do more with containers. Benefit from greater productivity with Knative, Istio, and machine-learning/artificial intelligence.

To achieve your CI/CD objectives, you need a platform that enables your automated processes, driving software through a path of building, testing, and deploying. 

Whether you transition to using Red Hat OpenShift Pipelines, integrate with your existing tools and workflows, or some combination of both, Red Hat OpenShift makes it possible to achieve whatever level of automation you desire. And, if those processes involve deploying to multiple Red Hat OpenShift infrastructures, you can do so easily.

Do you prefer to use a command-line interface for your day-to-day activities? Red Hat OpenShift Do (odo) abstracts away complex Kubernetes and Red Hat OpenShift concepts, allowing you to focus on writing code.

For example, start with odo create and specify the framework for your application (including Node.js, Java, Ruby, Perl, PHP, and Python).

When you’re ready to deploy your app use the odo push command. As you make code revisions, automatically validate, build and deploy code with odo watch.

That’s it! Your app is ready to be continuously deployed on Red Hat OpenShift.

Learning Kubernetes basics

Kubernetes gives you the platform to schedule and run containers on clusters of physical or virtual machines. Kubernetes can help you deliver and manage containerized and cloud-native apps at scale, as well as those being refactored into microservices across environments.

Introduction to Kubernetes patterns

Kubernetes patterns are design patterns for container-based applications and services. Patterns are the tools needed by a Kubernetes developer, and they will show you how to build your system.
