Develop, Host, and Scale Your Apps in the Cloud

OpenShift is Red Hat's container application platform that allows developers to quickly develop, build, deploy, and manage containerized services and applications in a cloud environment.

  • Open and Extensible

    Built with proven open source technologies from established communities. Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is built around a core of application containers powered by Docker, with orchestration and management provided by Kubernetes, on a foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux.

  • Application Portability

    Docker provides the abstraction for packaging and creating Linux-based, lightweight containers. Any application created on OpenShift can easily run anywhere that supports Docker.

  • Orchestration & Management

    Kubernetes provides the cluster management and orchestrates Docker containers on multiple hosts.

  • Automation

    OpenShift automates source code management, application builds, deployments, scaling, health management and more.

  • Collaboration

    OpenShift adds team and user tracking for large developer organizations. Developers can easily add or remove team members to a project.

Let your developers do what they do best – code.

With Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, Red Hat manages your OpenShift cluster so you can focus on your apps.
