Red Hat OpenShift is a complete container application platform that natively integrates technologies like docker and Kubernetes—a powerful container cluster management and orchestration system—and combines that with an enterprise foundation in Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
OpenShift integrates the architecture, processes, platforms, and services needed to empower development and operations teams.
Stateful and stateless apps
Red Hat OpenShift runs and supports both stateful and stateless applications. This allows you to take full advantage of containers without needing to completely rearchitect your enterprise apps.Read the OpenShift datasheet
Modernize your apps
OpenShift combined with Red Hat JBoss Middleware provides composable cloud-native services, including developer tools, integration, business automation, data management, and more. So you can develop applications faster, smarter, more flexibly, and overcome challenges of building distributed systems with microservices.Learn how KeyBank sped up delivery from every 3 months to every week
Build a better, stronger hybrid cloud
You can deploy and support OpenShift anywhere Red Hat Enterprise Linux—the basis for many public and private clouds—is deployed and supported. This includes Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, VMware, and more. With OpenShift, you can provide a single container application platform across these public and private clouds.
OpenShift provides development and operations teams with a common platform and set of tools. This aligns both teams to a common, continuous application development and maintenance workflow. With this approach, you can eliminate slow processes and manual paths to operate at the pace your business demands.Learn more about DevOps
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform gives you enterprise-grade Kubernetes built on the same open source platform that powers the OpenShift Online hosted service and packages it for customers who want to deploy it internally, inside their public or private datacenters.
With Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, you can operate your own cluster—on your own infrastructure—giving you ultimate control over your container environment.
Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated provides managed, single-tenant OpenShift environments on the public cloud. Installed and managed by Red Hat, these clusters can provide additional resources as needed, use Red Hat JBoss® Middleware and partner services, integrate with an existing authentication system, and connect to a private datacenter.
With Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, you can:
- Have an entire OpenShift Cluster dedicated to your enterprise, fully managed by Red Hat.
- Host your cluster on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform (GCP).
- Securely connect back to your on-premise data.
Red Hat OpenShift Online is Red Hat’s hosted public Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that offers an application development, build, deployment, and hosting solution in the cloud.
With Red Hat OpenShift Online, you can quickly build, host, and scale containerized applications in the public cloud–operated and supported by Red Hat.
