VSHN.timer #157: The Brand New OpenShift 4.11

10. Oct 2022

Welcome to another VSHN.timer! Every Monday, 5 links related to Kubernetes, OpenShift, CI / CD, and DevOps; all stuff coming out of our own chat system, making us think, laugh, or simply work better.

This week we’re going to talk about the latest version of Red Hat OpenShift: 4.11, released in August.

But before we start, did you know that APPUiO Cloud gives you instant access to a pay-per-use project in an OpenShift 4 cluster, enjoying all of the know-how and 24/7 support that only VSHN can provide? Create an account now and deploy your app right away!

1. Red Hat OpenShift 4.11 is loaded with lots of new features: based on Kubernetes 1.24, it includes 43 requests for enhancements (RFEs) from customers, among which the possibility of running multiple routers on the same node on different ports.



2. Red Hat OpenShift 4.11 includes Kubernetes Native Disaster Recovery, helping you remedy outages ranging from the regional to the metropolitan to the local. And instead of reprovisioning every node from a traditional recovery cluster, OpenShift Disaster Recovery also stores information about all the services and Kubernetes APIs that were in place before the outage.


3. OpenShift 4.11 includes a pre-release version of the new agent-based installer for OpenShift. With this new agent subcommand, installing clusters on-premise has never been easier.


4. Working with databases in OpenShift? Red Hat OpenShift Database Access improves the self-service of managed databases by allowing developers to import Database-as-a-Service Provider Accounts directly into their application namespace, without any administrative intervention.


5. IBM announced last week that the Red Hat and IBM Storage businesses are coming together as a single group within IBM. This group will be responsible for the development and delivery of Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation, Ceph Storage, and Gluster Storage.


Have you already updated your clusters to OpenShift 4.11? Do you need some guidance and would like us to help you? Do you have any OpenShift tips and tricks to share with the community? Get in touch with us, and see you next week for another edition of VSHN.timer.
