What is Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud?

Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud™ is a fully managed OpenShift service that leverages the enterprise scale and security of IBM Cloud, so you can focus on developing and managing your applications. It’s directly integrated into the same Kubernetes service that maintains 25 billion on-demand forecasts daily at The Weather Company®.

  • Enjoy dashboards with a native OpenShift experience, and push-button integrations with high-value IBM and Red Hat middleware and advanced services.

  • Move workloads and data more securely with Bring Your Own Key; Level 4 FIPS; and built-in industry compliance including PCI, HIPAA, GDPR, SOC1 and SOC2.
  • Start fast and small using one-click provisioning and metered billing, with no long-term commitment.

The fully managed OpenShift service provides:


  • Automated provisioning and configuration of infrastructure, including compute, network and storage
  • Automated installation and configuration of OpenShift, including high availability within a region
  • Automatic upgrades of all components (operating system, OpenShift components, and in-cluster services)


  • Security patch management for operating system and OpenShift
  • Built-in security features, including image signing, image deployment enforcement and hardware trust
