Outcomes of using Red Hat OpenShift
Consistency across any infrastructure
Red Hat OpenShift provides a consistent application platform for the management of existing, modernized, and cloud-native applications that run on any cloud, and a common abstraction layer across any infrastructure to give teams commonality in how applications are packaged, deployed, and managed. This allows you to run applications where it makes the most sense, without creating different operational models because of the host environment.
Develop innovative applications faster
Develop faster with a complete enterprise Kubernetes platform to build, test, deploy, and run applications. Red Hat OpenShift includes self-service access to developer tools, a browser-based IDE, a broad selection of coding languages, data and storage services, and full CI/CD services for automating application delivery and supporting a DevOps process.
Red Hat OpenShift also gives you the ability to integrate and use public cloud services such as AI/ML or analytics, and access to a commercial ISV software marketplace for the platform.
Run and manage applications anywhere
With Red Hat OpenShift, sysadmins and operations teams can manage applications, virtual machines, and containers from a single control plane. Regardless of where Red Hat OpenShift is installed the interface remains the same for administrators and developers, allowing you to control clusters, services, and roles for multiple teams from a central administrative console.
