Red Hat OpenShift gives developers a single, consistent user experience and the freedom to quickly build and deploy apps anywhere using the tools they want. By developing on a Kubernetes platform instead of coding to the specifics of their existing infrastructure, developers can automate once and run anywhere, whether they are on-premise, on a public cloud, or using a hybrid infrastructure.
