In this agile world of technology, automation has hardened its foot and why not by automation, companies can deliver quality and error-free service irrespective of the company’s domain whether it is pure IT or non-IT company.
And if you talk about server automation OpenShift by RedHat is one the most advanced tool. OpenShift is the finest automation tool that works on several other tools to solve many complex use cases. In this article below I would be talking about OpenShift and how it is simplifying and solving many problems
Before talking about OpenShift lets talk about Kubernetes which is the underlying opensource technology used by it
What is Kubernetes?
Kubernetes is an open-source platform use to manage the containers. It eliminates many of the manual processes involved in deploying and scaling containerized applications
If you don’t know about container technology, it is a trick to launch OS with applications holding microservices in less than 1 second.
Since Kubernetes has many powerful features but still it is restricted to its community
What is Redhat OpenShift?
OpenShift is a tool on top of Kubernetes adding and optimizing its use cases like adding automated builds to it and lots of exclusive features.
Why Redhat OpenShift?
Business leaders can deliver exceptional experiences without compromising quality or security.
Development teams can build with speed, agility, confidence, and a choice of languages, tools, and frameworks.
IT operations and security teams can support every application across infrastructures and clouds, with comprehensive security that enhances developer productivity while minimizing risk
Case Study: CISCO IT
Challenge: Improve productivity and speed to market
Cisco’s success depends on its ability to quickly deliver innovative IT products and solutions to customers. Delays can cost the company business. To encourage speed to market and improve satisfaction, Cisco needed to keep its 1,000+ developers fully engaged in designing and building applications and guard against high employee turnover, low productivity, and slow response times.
Solution: Build a 1-stop shopping catalog
Cisco turned to Red Hat to design and build its LAE, a PaaS deployment that supports hundreds of apps that power a variety of business functions. The solution gives developers a self-service portal they can use to order the IT resources they need to develop apps, eliminating manual provisioning. “It’s a 1-stop shopping catalog … making the ordering process seamless and easier for developers to use,” said Sudha Agrahara, IT manager at Cisco.
Results: Move from months to minutes for faster innovation
Cisco developers used to wait as long as 3 months for projects to be provisioned. “[Now] the developers push a button and the service is delivered within a matter of … minutes,” said Agrahara. More productivity means customers get innovative products and services faster. The solution reduces demands on limited IT resources and gives developers more time to focus on creative projects, increasing employee satisfaction. “Having a strategic, forward-thinking partner like Red Hat that aligns with all of our priorities is a key part of Cisco’s success,” said Michael White, IT architect at Cisco. “We’re thankful to have Red Hat as our partner.
Redhat OpenShift has now successfully lead the market is now solving large use cases and solving critical problems of companies may be from security to problem delivery. The lucid way of learning the OpenShift and its CLI along with WebUI has made all the analytics very simple and thus has a great future ahead
