Containers are used as the primary platform for application development and ideally support the 2 leading operating systems (OS) in datacenters — Red Hat® Enterprise Linux® and Microsoft Windows. Without a standard OS, applications are often siloed, which can cause complexities in management and a lag in application modernization.
Get the benefits of Kubernetes by running your Windows applications in a scheduled, orchestrated, and managed manner with Red Hat OpenShift.
Red Hat OpenShift orchestrates both Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Windows to run as the building blocks of your applications. It supports .NET core applications, traditional .NET framework applications, and other Windows applications through the Windows Machine Config Operator (WMCO).
Windows Machine Config Operator enables Windows server workloads on Red Hat OpenShift 4.6+ clusters on cloud and on-premise platforms. Through the operator cluster, administrators can add Windows worker nodes as a day 2 operation and enable scheduling of Windows workloads.
All workloads, whether Linux or Windows-based, can then be managed and viewed together through the Red Hat OpenShift management console.
