Whether its Kubernetes or Red Hat® OpenShift®, the IBM® Instana® platform goes wherever you go. We’re excited to announce support for hosting Instana on-premises on Red Hat OpenShift.

The Instana on-premises observability backend empowers system administrators with the complete suite of features available in the IBM Instana Observability platform while also maintaining full data custody and avoiding potentially expensive data transmission. The Instana platform already supports a seamless installation process in Kubernetes using helm. We can now offer a similar seamless experience for Red Hat OpenShift.

Red Hat OpenShift provides an enterprise-ready and fully supported Kubernetes container platform. See the latest versions supported by Instana here.

To install the Instana backend, no special steps are needed, just follow the installation steps to install the Kubernetes operator in your Red Hat OpenShift cluster.
