Managed OpenShift for Developers

hero background

Innovative apps and digital services are your business? Do you develop apps and would you like to have the freedom to write code the way you want? Would you like to not have to worry about infrastructure? Do you want to use the best developer tools for your team? Do you need to build and customize applications quickly to respond to user demands? Is the round-the-clock operation of your production app a headache? Do you want to offload development and not run everything yourself?

If you can answer “yes” to one or more of these questions, then read on now.

Software container & Kubernetes

Companies of all sizes and industries are now embracing application containerization and the Kubernetes container orchestration platform.

Kubernetes is often referred to as the “operating system of the cloud,” and containerization enables software developers to build and deploy apps faster and more securely. Red Hat OpenShift is the enterprise-ready Kubernetes distribution and the leading container platform for developers.

Kubernetes and OpenShift both manage groups of containers called clusters. Each cluster consists of two parts: A control plane and worker nodes. Containers are run in the worker nodes, each of which has its own Linux operating system. The Control Plane is responsible for the general state of the cluster (for example, what apps are running and what container images are being used), while the Worker Nodes do the actual computational work.

Containerization is the packaging of software code into packages that contain all the necessary components such as libraries, frameworks, and other dependencies, isolated in their own container.

Containerization allows applications, along with the necessary software libraries, to be decoupled from the host and its operating system, providing advantages for development, deployment, and hosting.

A container’s application can be moved to any environment and run consistently on any infrastructure, regardless of the infrastructure’s environment or operating system.

Advantages of Red Hat OpenShift

OpenShift automatisiert den gesamten Stack und das Lifecycle-Management und ermöglicht schnellere Deployments von Applikationen und eine höhere Entwicklungs-Produktivität. Das Automatisieren sorgt für ein mehr an Sicherheit, ein massgeschneidertes Cluster-Management und portierbare Anwendungen.

Als vielseitige Container-Plattform ist OpenShift mehr als nur ein Softwareprodukt, dass die Entwicklung von Cloud-Native Anwendungen vereinfacht. Es kann der Schlüssel zur Einführung einer DevOps-Kultur sein – durch Automatisierung routinemässiger Aufgaben und Standardisierung von Umgebungen über den gesamten Lifecycle einer App hinweg.

Kubernetes vs OpenShift vs APPUiO

Kubernetes is an open source project. OpenShift, in turn, is a ready-made product based on Kubernetes that brings additional enterprise features.

APPUiO Managed offers you an OpenShift worry-free package including 24/7 operation, maintenance, patching and additional managed services for a fixed monthly price that can be calculated in advance.

APPUiO Managed OpenShift provides highly available, fully managed OpenShift clusters on demand, monitored and operated by VSHN.

APPUiO Managed is OpenShift as a service

Relieve yourself of the tedious and repetitive tasks surrounding 24/7 operations.

With APPUiO Managed, you enable reliable app development, deployment, and scaling in OpenShift and sleep soundly at night.
