What is your total cost of ownership (TCO)?

There is more to the total cost of Kubernetes than the infrastructure itself. Do you have the resources to support and operate your clusters 24x7x365, or do you need enterprise support? Could your internal talent be better tasked with creating innovative solutions to your customer’s problems? You’ll also want to factor in service costs such as monitoring, logging, security, service mesh, and building CI/CD pipelines; all critical services that aren’t part of a basic Kubernetes deployment.

The costs and time to implement the features you need add up fast. With a Red Hat OpenShift Managed service, we take the burden off you. Let us reduce the operational complexity, accelerating your time to market by allowing you to focus on building and scaling applications that add more value to your business.

Frequently asked questions

What are the differences between Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift, OpenShift Dedicated, and OpenShift Container Platform?

Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides highly available, fully managed Red Hat OpenShift clusters on Microsoft Azure. This service is jointly engineered, operated and supported by both Microsoft and Red Hat. OpenShift Dedicated offers managed Kubernetes in a virtual private cloud on AWS. OpenShift Container Platform spans on-premise datacenters, and public and private clouds, providing a consistent environment for applications across any infrastructure where Red Hat Enterprise Linux is supported.

Running containers in production with Kubernetes requires additional tools and resources, such as an image registry, storage management, networking solutions, and logging and monitoring tools, all of which must be versioned and tested together. Building container-based applications requires even more integration work with middleware, frameworks, databases, and CI/CD tools. OpenShift combines these into a single platform, bringing ease of operations to IT teams while giving application teams what they need to execute. To view all the open source projects OpenShift tests together for a complete container platform, view our tested integrations, or visit our Kubernetes page.

Yes. Many smaller teams use the OpenShift Learning playground for development and test, and Online Pro for production workloads; these workloads can later be migrated to OpenShift Dedicated or OpenShift Container Platform clusters. Similarly, customers often use OpenShift Dedicated and Container Platform together for greater hybrid cloud flexibility.

OpenShift supports hundreds of technologies and third-party integrations. You can check out the full list here.
