Red Hat OpenShift on Azure

Red Hat OpenShift - Enterprise Kubernetes for Microsoft Azure

Containers have revolutionized the DevOps process, transforming how organizations build, ship, and run applications on any infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is an enterprise container application platform based on industry standards, Docker, and Kubernetes. Combined with the power of the Microsoft Cloud via Azure, organizations can accelerate moving existing applications to the cloud, speed the time-to-market of new products, and deliver more innovation to customers.

In this workshop, we will discuss how containers solve many of the challenges for development and operations. We will show you how to start taking advantage of the cloud, without rewriting all of your existing applications. We will demonstrate how Microsoft and Red Hat combined can improve speed, scalability, security, innovation, and cost to your IT organization.
