Red Hat OpenShift helps enterprises to modernize and build applications for the requirements of the enterprises.

FREMONT, CA: Enterprises these days want to take advantage of the best-in-class technology, be it on-premises or service in the public cloud. Their ultimate goal is to streamline operations, stay secure and compliant, and save money. Red Hat OpenShift is an open-source container platform that helps enterprises modernize and build applications to fulfill these needs. OpenShift provides automated installation, upgrades, and lifecycle management across the container stack, the operation system, Kubernetes and cluster services, and any cloud applications. The platform enables the teams to build with speed, agility, confidence, and choice and gives security at each level of the container stack and across the application lifecycle.

Here is how OpenShift can help enterprises to meet their digital transformation goals.


Most of today's organizations cannot build from scratch; usually, the customers have legacy systems, apps, and infrastructures that have to be integrated with their new platforms, and their teams are not familiar with the new platform. OpenShift offers consistency throughout environments and allows the teams to work with the platform easily.

OpenShift can consistently run in several cloud environments, including bare metal, on-premises, or in a virtual machine (VM) environment. It can also work on top of AWS, Azure, or Google, which normalizes their enterprise environments and creates simplicity within their organization.


Data breaches are occurring almost daily at major corporations, therefore putting security on top-of-mind for the customers. Teams invest countless hours preparing for and dealing with security issues – several platforms do not front-load security controls. However, OpenShift's built-in security controls offer enterprises a secure container environment from the very beginning. 


Automation develops efficiency and saves money. Container platforms such as OpenShift are an efficient use of computing power rather than VMs, and customers use the containers more than VMs. Containers help to streamline processes and allow numerous environments to integrate.  

As businesses evaluate various cloud environments, they will realize that they need to have people on the teams with particular skill sets that align to certain platforms. OpenShift helps enterprises to onboard their existing teams to one platform and automates underlying resources in the cloud.
