Red Hat OpenShift meets the needs of IT teams and application developers. Customers have wide choice in Kubernetes solutions, including do-it-yourself (DIY) platforms built on upstream projects, managed services on public clouds, and other self-hosted platforms. Red Hat OpenShift stands out as a leading choice for customers who want a more secure, supported Kubernetes platform guided by deep expertise.
Features and benefits
Applications running on penShift Container Platform can scale to thousands of instances across hundreds of nodes in a matter of seconds.
Consolidated views of clusters and the use of Kubernetes technologies offer a consistent management layer across on-premises and public clouds.
Red Hat OpenShift Container Storage allows users to run stateful applications and cloud-native stateless applications
Open source standards
OpenShift Container Platform incorporates Open Containers Initiative (OCI)/Docker-formatted containers and Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF)-certified Kubernetes for container orchestration, in addition to other open source technologies.
Container images built on the OCI industry standard ensure portability between developer workstations and production OpenShift Container Platform environments.
Developers can quickly and easily create applications on demand from the tools they use most, while Operations retains full control over the entire environment.
Polyglot, multi language support
Developers can use various languages, frameworks, and databases on the same platform.
Integrated CI/CD pipelines
OpenShift Container Platform lets developers reduce manual deployment work to deploy higher quality software for continuous integration and automated tests.
Developers have direct access to a rich set of command-line tools,a multidevice web console, and Eclipse-based IDEs.
OpenShift Container Platform provides a toolkit and workflow for producing ready-to-run images by injecting source code into a container and letting the container prepare that source code for execution.
Automated installation and upgrades
Automated installation and over-the-air platform upgrades are supported in the cloud with Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud Platform, and Azure, and on-premise using vSphere, enStack® or bare metal. Services consumed from the OperatorHub can be deployed fully configured and upgradable with a single operation.
Streamlined and automated container and application builds,deployments, scaling, health management, and more are standard with OpenShift Container Platform.
An ever-expanding ecosystem of partners provides a wide variety of integrations. These third parties deliver additional storage and network providers, IDE and CI integrations, ISV solutions, and more for use with OpenShift Container Platform.

Supported Platforms Setup
You can run OpenShift hybrid cloud on any Platform Infrastructure public cloud, private cloud, physical on-premises or on per-existing infrastructure
Run Virtualization from OpenShift as Container-Native Virtualization
Container-native virtualization lets developers bring virtual machines (VMs) into containerized workflows by running a virtual machine within a container. By combining these two technologies into a single management platform, organizations take advantage of the simplicity and speed of containers and Kubernetes while still benefiting from the applications and services that have been architected for virtual machines.
