VSHN.timer #207: What’s New in OpenShift 4.14?

20. Nov 2023

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 release of our preferred Kubernetes-based container platform: Red Hat OpenShift 4.14!

1. Based on Kubernetes 1.27 and CRI-O 1.27, Red Hat OpenShift 4.14 accelerates modern application development and delivery across the hybrid cloud while keeping security, flexibility and scalability remain at the forefront. Learn more about OpenShift 4.14 in this blog post and in the release notes.

2. Kepler (Kubernetes-based Efficient Power Level Exporter) is a metrics exporter that uses eBPF to collect and export energy-related system stats. This allows Kepler to provide granular power consumption data for Kubernetes Pods, Namespaces, and Nodes.


3. Operational resilience is becoming more of a boardroom concern especially so for organizations operating in industries deemed as essential by governements for the functioning of society. Learn how OpenShift Platform Plus can help businesses reach operational resilience and protect themselves against failure.


4. In addition to 14-month extended support, Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides a multitude of support benefits. Jointly managed between Red Hat and Microsoft, it is backed by a global SRE team that proactively manages lifecycle, scaling, security, patching and incident responses.


5. The VSHN.timer project of the week supports automatically getting a certificate for OpenShift routes from any cert-manager Issuer, similar to annotating an Ingress or Gateway resource in vanilla Kubernetes!
