Red Hat OpenShift
for developers

Build and deploy your applications across multiple infrastructures on Red Hat® OpenShift®, integrated with the way you work.

Expand your horizons

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.


What makes OpenShift the right choice?

Kubernetes has become the standard control plane for containers and containerized applications. But Kubernetes was built for the needs of IT Operations, not developers. In order for code to be deployed, developers need to be able to leverage the benefits of Kubernetes without requiring them to develop a platform skillset. Taking time from development cycles to learn, install and manage those tools is not helping get the business apps to market. OpenShift is designed so developers can deploy apps on Kubernetes without needing to learn Kubernetes.

As a developer, you need to stop changing how you work to fit the platform. With OpenShift, you can truly automate once and run anywhere by developing on a Kubernetes platform instead of coding to the specifics of your existing infrastructures, whether they are on-premises, public cloud, or hybrid. Regardless of the infrastructure, the OpenShift interface remains the same. Get familiar with one application-centric UI that enables you to quickly build code, deploy containers, link services and more.

Built for your workflows

To achieve your CI/CD objectives, you need a platform that enables your automated processes, driving software through a path of building, testing, and deploying. Whether you transition to use OpenShift Pipelines, integrate with your existing tools and workflows, or some combination of both, OpenShift makes it easy to achieve whatever level of automation you desire. And, if those processes involve deploying to multiple OpenShift infrastructures, you can do so easily.

We love CLI Junkies, too!

Do you prefer to use a CLI for your day-to-day activities? OpenShift Do (odo) abstracts away complex Kubernetes and OpenShift concepts, allowing you to focus on what is most important to you: writing code.

  • Start with odo create and specify the framework for your application (including Node.js, Java, Ruby, Perl, PHP, and Python)
  • When you’re ready to deploy your app, simply use the odo push command
  • As you make code revisions, automatically validate, build and deploy code with odo watch

That’s it! Your app is ready to be continuously deployed on OpenShift.

OpenShift benefits

Use what you love

Red Hat OpenShift provides commercial support for the languages, databases, and tooling you already use, while providing easy access to services, including public cloud services through the service broker.

Streamlined delivery

Red Hat OpenShift includes everything you need to manage your development lifecycle: standardized workflows, support for multiple environments, continuous integration, release management, and more.

Use new technology

Red Hat OpenShift is extensible to emerging Kubernetes-based frameworks and technologies, making it easier for teams to do more with containers. Benefit from greater productivity with Knative, Istio, and machine-learning / artificial intelligence.
