Red Hat OpenShift for IT operations

Copy URL

Unify your platform across multiple infrastructures on Red Hat® OpenShift®.

Your developers need to get their applications deployed. Most of them just want to write code and don’t want to learn about the specifics of the infrastructure where it runs. Your architects and lead developers might want to explore using containers and Kubernetes. Either way, Red Hat OpenShift has you covered.

With a container platform that can run on-premise, in the cloud, or in hybrid deployments, enable your development teams to do the job they want with the least friction, all while giving you, the operator, control, visibility, and management.

Take control of containers.

Scale and complexity are inherent with today’s applications. Adopting a container platform lets you keep up with their scale and complexity requirements, but you can’t spend all your time managing the complexities and intricacies of the platform. Red Hat OpenShift is designed to make deploying and managing the container platform easier. With automated maintenance operations and upgrades built right in and integrated platform monitoring, Red Hat OpenShift is the administrator-friendly Kubernetes-based container platform you’ve been waiting for.

You have spent years optimizing your virtualization platform to run your applications. Did you know that you can build your container environment right on top of that? Red Hat OpenShift is ready to be installed on top of your current environment to support your need for containerized applications.

Need to get to the cloud? Red Hat OpenShift is ready to be installed on cloud infrastructures to provide a container platform both you and your developers can use to deploy containerized applications in the cloud.

If you’re like many of your peers, you need to deploy clusters both on-premise and in the cloud. Red Hat OpenShift offers the same user experience for all your hybrid or multicloud deployments. Standardize on Red Hat OpenShift and reduce the complexity of deploying everywhere for your IT teams and your developers.

Red Hat OpenShift provides a single and consistent development model across the entire software development lifecycle. And, with Red Hat OpenShift’s fully self-service developer capabilities, operations will no longer be called on to deploy unfamiliar infrastructure just to enable the software pipeline. Let your developers and architects deploy, manage and build their code pipelines with ease on Red Hat OpenShift, while you concentrate on providing them the stable and scalable container platform that lets it happen.
