The world’s leading provider of open source solutions, Red Hat has launched the next gen of Red Hat OpenShift Online, the industry’s first open source, container-native, multi-tenant cloud platform. Based on the same Linux container and Kubernetes based foundation as the award-winning Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Red Hat OpenShift Online provides developers and technicians the ability to build more quickly and easily, deploy and scale cloud-native applications in a public cloud environment.
Since OpenShift’s launch in the year 2011, it has hosted more than three million applications that were built by hundreds of thousands of individual developers, startups, educational institutions, ISVs and enterprise organizations around the world. This establishes the company as one of the industry’s most popular developer platforms to build any app, anywhere, and at any scale on the public cloud.
“Application agility and, more broadly, digital transformation has become not just a goal, but a necessary change for many enterprises across the world thanks in no small part to rapidly changing customer needs and competitive demands,” said Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager of OpenShift, Red Hat. “Red Hat OpenShift enables organizations to accelerate the path to production for their container-based applications by giving developers the ability to quickly begin new development projects and easily bring them into production in the enterprise.”
OpenShift is a polyglot platform that supports multiple languages including, Java, Node.js, .NET, Ruby, Python, PHP, et al. Thus this makes OpenShift a need-based platform for aspiring developers and those who want to create their own niche.
