Features & benefits

Enterprise Kubernetes

Red Hat OpenShift is a complete container application platform that natively integrates technologies like Docker and Kubernetes, and includes an enterprise foundation in Red Hat Enterprise Linux®.

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.

Container security

Red Hat OpenShift delivers built-in security for container-based applications, including role-based access controls, Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux)-enabled isolation, and checks throughout the container build process.

Modernize your apps

Red Hat OpenShift combined with Red Hat JBoss Middleware provides composable cloud-native services, including developer tools. You can develop applications faster, smarter, and more flexibly, and overcome the challenges of building distributed systems with microservices.

Build a better, stronger hybrid cloud

You can deploy and support OpenShift anywhere Red Hat Enterprise Linux is deployed and supported. This includes Amazon Web Services, Azure, Google Cloud Platform, VMware, and more.

Embrace DevOps

Red Hat 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.

Three deployment models to meet your needs

Innovation determines today’s market leaders. It’s how they’re reshaping entire industries. The path to successful long-term growth and innovation lies in container application platforms and the ability to embrace DevOps to accelerate application delivery in hybrid cloud environments. Red Hat OpenShift gets you there. Whether on-premise, hosted, or in a public cloud, it helps you build quality apps quickly, so you can stay competitive in a fast-changing world.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform provides enterprise-grade Kubernetes environments for building, deploying, and managing container-based applications across any public or private datacenter where Red Hat Enterprise Linux is supported.

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.
