Business Concerns Solved by OpenShift

  • Lengthy development and deployment cycles
    Inflexible infrastructures make it difficult for your IT operation teams to support development processes and deliver the right platforms. Without the capability to deliver self-service capabilities, your developers are forced to wait for IT staff to provision platforms.
  • Lengthy provisioning response times
    Forcing your developers to wait for platforms to be provisioned results in the releases of new applications and services to be delayed.
  • Process disruption
    When your developers can’t tap into self-service infrastructures, they have to spend a lot of time configuring tools and systems. This means they must shift their focus from essential design and coding efforts to configuration and maintenance tasks.
  • Security risks
    Platform inconsistencies and lengthy problem identification and resolution processes make it difficult for your IT teams to mitigate issues and limit exposure.
Red Hat® OpenShift Container Platform helps organizations develop, deploy, and manage existing and container-based applications seamlessly across physical, virtual, and public cloud infrastructures. Built on proven open source technologies, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform helps application development and IT operations teams modernize applications, deliver new services, and accelerate development processes.

  • Collaboration
    Collaboration capabilities allow your developers to share access to applications for teambased development, bringing the benefits of community-powered innovation to your enterprise.
  • Support for Innovation
    OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat gives you an enterprise-grade PaaS solution with consumer-grade ease of use and deployment flexibility. Your IT teams can use flexible infrastructure that encourages experimentation, iteration, and rapid innovation, accelerating the development and deployment of innovative solutions without trusting important business initiatives to outside agencies or public cloud providers.
  • Fast provisioning
    OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat makes it easy for your IT teams to automate and accelerate platform provisioning. With a PaaS that reduces provisioning response times from weeks to minutes, your developers can request and immediately access required resources, rather than waiting for your IT staff to prepare systems for deployment.
  • Consistency
    OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat can help your organization simplify IT processes and consistently deliver a known platform and set of tools. Your developers can spend their time on the right tasks, like designing compelling user interfaces and appropriate database architecture, rather than configuring firewall settings or tuning the operating system.
  • Simplicity
    OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat takes the hassle out of allocating and provisioning platforms. Your developers simply request an application instance through a web console, command-line tooling, or Eclipse-based IDE with Red Hat JBoss® Developer Studio, and the PaaS instantiates the application stack. With self-service capabilities and quick and easy access, your developers can begin coding immediately.
  • Familiarity
    With OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat, your developers can access a variety of popular programming languages and push the limits of application creativity and innovation, while meeting your enterprise business requirements. As a polyglot PaaS, OpenShift Enterprise includes support for Java, Perl, PHP, Python, and Ruby, as well as Node.js for server-side JavaScript./li>
  • Interoperability
    OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat provides standard application runtimes, middleware, and data services—including Red Hat JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform, Tomcat, Apache, MySQL, and PostgreSQL servers. Because OpenShift Enterprise runs the same unmodified version of these components as you would run in your datacenter, you can move your applications to other environments that support the same languages and reduce vendor lock-in.
  • Security
    Are you concerned about using a PaaS in a public cloud environment? You can deploy OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat in your on-premise datacenter or in a private cloud. This allows your enterprise IT department to address the concerns you may have regarding security, data privacy, governance, and corporate and regulatory compliance. And, your IT teams can quickly and easily deploy patches to build and help keep the trust of their customers.
  • Risk reduction
    OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat supports a rapid development and delivery methodology. Your IT teams can identify security flaws and implement fixes in production environments in less time.
