OpenShift Kubernetes Containers

Empower developers to innovate and ship faster with the leading hybrid cloud, enterprise container platform.

Simplifying and automating the cloud, everywhere.

Li9’s Kubernetes consulting experts work with Red Hat on the most complex OpenShift projects.  OpenShift is deigned for diverse environments, OpenShift ushers in the next era of the Kubernetes standard to automate and operationalize best practices for modern application platforms. Red Hat OpenShift operates as a unified cloud experience for the hybrid world, and enables an automation-first approach.

Self-managing platform for hybrid cloud to provide a cloud-like experience via automatic software updates and lifecycle management across the hybrid cloud, powered by the trusted foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat Enterprise Linux CoreOS. This enables greater security, auditability, repeatability, ease of management and user experience.

Adaptability and heterogeneous support, available in coming months across major public cloud vendors including Alibaba, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Google Cloud, IBM Cloud, Microsoft Azure, private cloud technologies like OpenStack, virtualization platforms and bare-metal servers.

Streamlined full stack installation with an automated process makes it easier to get started with enterprise Kubernetes quickly.

Simplified application deployments and lifecycle management with Kubernetes Operators. Red Hat pioneered stateful and complex applications on Kubernetes with Operators that automate application maintenance, scaling and failover.  Now OpenShift provides Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operators. Working in conjunction with the broader partner ecosystem, OpenShift includes a broad set of applications to run as-a-service across the hybrid cloud.

The Business Value of OpenShift

IDC spoke with organizations that are leveraging containerization and the public cloud by using Red Hat OpenShift on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to develop and
run business applications. 

As a result, these organizations are capturing strong value through their investment in OpenShift on AWS, which IDC projects will have a value of $10.89 million per organization per year.  

Automating Kubernetes

If you’ve deployed applications on a Kubernetes cluster, you’ll be familiar with some of the challenges and  inspirations that forged the Operator pattern.

An Operator extends Kubernetes to automate the management of the entire lifecycle of a particular application.  Operators serve as a packaging mechanism for distributing applications on Kubernetes, and they monitor, maintain, recover, and upgrade the software they deploy.


OpenShift and HIPPA

The focus of this paper is on the technical security features and capabilities of OpenShift as they align with HIPAA Security Rule requirements.

This product applicability guide may be useful for covered entities and business associates (CE&BAs) desiring to utilize container technologies within the framework of a HIPAA Security Rule program of compliance.

How the benefits of OpenShift apply to you.  

Application Development

Build and deploy your applications across multiple infrastructures on Red Hat OpenShift, integrated with the way you work.   Developers need to focus on writing their best code, not fighting the infrastructure their apps are running on.   

As a developer, you’re not even thinking about the infrastructure used by your organization.   Use a container platform that makes deploying your code the focus.  No matter what infrastructure Red Hat OpenShift runs on, your code will run, too.  On-prem? In the cloud?  We’ve got you covered.

IT Operations

Your developers need to get their applications deployed. Most of them just want to write code and don’t want to learn about the specifics of the infrastructure where it runs. Your architects and lead developers might want to explore using containers and Kubernetes. Either way, OpenShift has you covered.

With a container platform that can run on-premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid deployments, enable your development teams to do the job they want with the least friction, all while giving you, the operator, control, visibility, and management.

Business Executives

New technology is creating new opportunities to connect with your customers and expand the way you do business.  Your challenge is to create new products and services that can be created quickly and scale, which means using the right cloud technologies.

Your organization’s developers and operations teams are challenged with using technology that is a blend of on-premises and public cloud infrastructure options, for your new digital offerings to be created and live.
