The titles at Red Hat just a few days ago went like, “Red Hat Redefines Enterprise Kubernetes Through Full Stack Automation with Red Hat OpenShift 4.” Red Hat OpenShift 4, the next generation of its trusted enterprise Kubernetes platform, re-engineered to address the complex realities of container orchestration in production systems.
OpenShift 4 is designed to deliver a cloud-like experience across the hybrid cloud by driving automated updates across Kubernetes deployments everywhere. OpenShift 4 brings a new ray of light in the container space due to the numerous advancements done on the platform. (source: www.redhat.com, 2019). The following are some of the amazing stuff done on the platform:
Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is certified, conformant Kubernetes, as validated by the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF). At the moment, it is the only enterprise Kubernetes offering built on the backbone of the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform. Moreover it is backed by the open source expertise, compatible ecosystem, and leadership of Red Hat (source: www.redhat.com, 2019).
With an operator framework and related components, developers and administrators are empowered to automate and orchestrate complex tasks required to maintain an application across any cloud where Kubernetes runs (source: www.redhat.com, 2019).
As documented by the team at Red Hat, OpenShift 4 supports the evolving needs of application development. It serves as a consistent platform to optimize developer productivity with the follwing (www.redhat.com, 2019):
OpenShift 4 is Kubernetes at its core and in this release they have completely re-architected how to install, upgrade and manage the platform. There is advanced day 2 management and automation to the application services that run on the platform. Some of the Automation details include (www.redhat.com, 2019):
OpenShift 4 uses Kubernetes itself to provision and scale your Kubernetes clusters, leveraging the new OpenShift installer.
OpenShift 4 comes with improved web console for Administrators and Developers. You will be able to perform most operation tasks from the web console.
Red Hat Inc. acquired CoreOS a while back. This minimal operating system optimized for containers is provides the foundation for Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
The auto-scaler in OpenShift Container Platform repeatedly checks to see how many pods are pending node allocation. If pods are pending allocation and the auto-scaler has not met its maximum capacity, then new nodes are continuously provisioned to accommodate the current demand.
When demand drops and fewer nodes are required, the auto-scaler removes unused nodes. After you install the auto-scaler, its behavior is automatic. You only need to add the desired number of replicas to the deployment.
There so much more in store for you. Just follow the following links to get more updates and news concerning the brand new OpenShift 4. Thank you for reading through..
