Implementing DevOps with containers

How Linux containers support DevOps in public sector IT

With pressure to modernize legacy systems, do more with less, meet mandates, and keep up with new innovations, many in public sector IT are turning to DevOps for help.

By employing a comprehensive platform for operationalizing Linux® containers, Red Hat® OpenShift enables public sector IT organizations to efficiently implement DevOps and reduce conflicts between development and operations teams. Containers and DevOps practices give developers the freedom to work on applications while operations can focus on the infrastructure.

As the second largest contributor to the Kubernetes and Moby (formerly known as docker) communities, Red Hat provides container-focused solutions that give public sector IT the infrastructure, platform, and control needed to deliver on their mission—all built on the security and stability of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
