Industrial Use-cases of Openshift
What is OpenShift ??
OpenShift is a family of containerization software products developed by Red Hat. Its flagship product is the OpenShift Container Platform — an on-premises platform as a service built around Docker containers orchestrated and managed by Kubernetes on a foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. OpenShift is a layered system wherein each layer is tightly bound with the other layer using Kubernetes and Docker cluster. … In this model, Docker helps in the creation of lightweight Linux-based containers and Kubernetes supports the task of orchestrating and managing containers on multiple hosts.
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.
Why Cisco Use OpenShift?
To keep pace with customer demand, Cisco, a leading provider of networking solutions, must quickly deliver new IT products and solutions. The challenge is to keep its IT team engaged and productive to fuel innovation. With help from Red Hat, Cisco built its Lightweight Application Environment (LAE), which runs on Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) technology formerly known as OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat.
2. BMW Group
The BMW Group wanted a more flexible application infrastructure to provide more agile development and IT operations methodologies. Using the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the Group could provide a more secure and stable platform that allowed for container-based deployments. It also allows traditional applications to coexist alongside new, cloud-native, and container-based applications.The BMW Group can now choose the technology that most closely delivers on its needs at any moment in time. Ashesh Badanivice, president and general manager of OpenShift Red Hat said, “The BMW Group shows just how an organization can embrace agile methodologies and modern container technologies to deliver business value and an enhanced customer experience.”
