Designed for Reliable Large-Scale Cloud Deployments
With ever-growing competition, enterprises have to accelerate their product development cycle to keep up with new technologies and stay ahead. Businesses need to regularly release customized applications for instant and growing demand from external and internal users who rely on digital transformation to gain competitiveness.
The Supermicro and Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform solution offers integrated hardware, software and support packages built with Kubernetes which provide agile deployment and management of containers in an on-premises, private, and hybrid cloud environment.
The modern enterprise needs to build, deploy, and manage container-based applications consistently across cloud and on-premises infrastructures with speed and agility. Effective DevOps strategy becomes a key element for organizations to succeed in the digital transformation journey.
Red Hat® OpenShift® is a complete container application platform that natively integrates technologies including Docker and Kubernetes – a powerful container cluster management and orchestration system – and includes an enterprise foundation in Red Hat Enterprise Linux®.
The Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform offers enterprises full control over their Kubernetes environments. It handles cloud-native and traditional applications on a single platform. The platform has built-in security from infrastructure to services, throughout the operations and application lifecycle.
