The Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift service enables you to deploy fully managed OpenShift clusters. Azure Red Hat OpenShift extends Kubernetes. Running containers in production with Kubernetes requires additional tools and resources, such as an image registry, storage management, networking solutions, and logging and monitoring tools, all of which must be versioned and tested together. Building container-based applications requires even more integration work with middleware, frameworks, databases, and CI/CD tools. Azure Red Hat OpenShift combines all this into a single platform, bringing ease of operations to IT teams while giving application teams what they need to execute.
