OpenShift Industry Use Cases

OpenShift is a Container platform tool that uses the Kubernetes and many other concepts like builds for continuous integration and continuous deployment and also provide monitoring for the application. With the help of OpenShift one can just provide the link of the GitHub or GitHub like cloud servers which store code and OpenShift will directly download the code and convert into a docker image and use it to create containers which are very efficient with resources compared to other methods

OpenShift benefits us as Developers, IT operators and Business Leaders

OpenShift for developers

Kubernetes is a service that is very much used because of it’s use of containers to launch applications in the most efficient with automatic failover relaunching of resources and also being very portable. But for developers, Kubernetes is hard to manage when we only want to just launch the apps. But with the help of OpenShift, we don't need to worry about the CI/CD pipelines and OpenShift itself manages it directly.

OpenShift for IT Operations

Scaling and complexity are common in applications these days. The load of the application may increase at any time and having less instances for the user to access will lead to loss in customers and if we have more than required, then there will be a loss in resources. Containers remove that problem because of the speed of scaling is very fast in containers because you can create a container just in seconds. with the help of containers and workflow automation, one can directly just focus on the code building and can easily deploy, test and build the code. OpenShift platform provides all the workflow automation and container orchestration as default without any external integrations and also provide monitoring for the application

OpenShift for Business Leaders

When it comes to the large organizations, Hybrid cloud computing is a famous norm which is the idea of utilizing cloud services like AWS, GCP, Azure and also create clouds on-premise like OpenStack different from OpenStack) to create private clouds and combine them to create efficient infrastructure and higher safety because some companies like banks cannot have their data in public clouds due to their company terms. OpenShift partnered with major cloud companies to create dedicated managed services in AWS and Azure. This allows us to have OpenShift in multiple clouds and also OpenShift software can be downloaded and installed on the private servers directly with the same features. This removes the problem of migrations and security issues because one can easily migrate from one cloud service to another without no problem of thinking to redesign the whole infrastructure in the other cloud and also one can install the software in their private servers for security terms.
