OpenShift is for developers, and OpenShift is for enterprises


Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud™ unlocks the power of IBM Cloud for the Red Hat community. We’re excited to announce the arrival of OpenShift 4.3, with significant updates from 3.11.

OpenShift is for developers

OpenShift 4 comes with some major improvements geared for developers. Notably, OpenShift 4 is built on operators, a way of packaging, running, and maintaining Kubernetes apps. OperatorHub comes embedded directly into OpenShift, allowing you to quickly deploy integrations with IBM Cloud, Red Hat, and vendor-provided services. This is just one of the ways OpenShift is improving the developer experience. Take a look into a few of the developer-ready features that OpenShift supports for immediate use:

OpenShift is for enterprises

Enterprises today are building containerized applications on infrastructure from a number of cloud vendors, and prioritize flexibility across these environments. Although Kubernetes is a strong solution for enabling hybrid and even multi-cloud architectures, there is a growing need for reducing complexity by streamlining DevOps, hardening security, and providing seamless portability. Red Hat OpenShift rises to that challenge, providing enterprise-ready capabilities geared to ease onboarding onto container-based app development, while maintaining industry-grade security.

Combine this with IBM Cloud, where Red Hat OpenShift runs on the same infrastructure as 20,000 production Kubernetes clusters, and the result is a world-class experience. With Red Hat OpenShift 4 and IBM Cloud together, clients have access to a flexible, fully managed solution to quickly create and manage their clusters in the cloud. Let us handle the infrastructure, security, and provisioning – you focus on developing your next-generation cloud applications.
