OpenShift is a cloud development Platform as a Service (PaaS) developed by Red Hat. It is an open source development platform, which enables the developers to develop and deploy their applications on cloud infrastructure. It is very helpful in developing cloud-enabled services.
What is the use of OpenShift?
Red Hat OpenShift is a Kubernetes distribution focused on developer experience and application security that’s platform agnostic. OpenShift helps you develop and deploy applications to one or more hosts. These can be public facing web applications, or backend applications, including micro services or databases.
What is difference between Docker and OpenShift?
The primary difference is that Docker as a project is focused on the runtime container only, whereas OpenShift (as a system) includes both the runtime container as well as the REST API, coordination, and web interfaces to deploy and manage individual containers.
Why do we need OpenShift?
OpenShift enables efficient container orchestration, allowing rapid container provisioning, deploying, scaling, and management. … By streamlining and automating the container automation process, OpenShift enables cybersecurity developers to focus on accelerating application development, updates, and product distribution.
