Setting up OpenShift Container Platform clusters

IBM Cloud Pak® solutions can include entitlement to use Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux® CoreOS (RHCOS), and Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). RHCOS is the only supported operating system for OpenShift Container Platform master node hosts. RHCOS and RHEL are both supported operating systems for OpenShift Container Platform worker node hosts, though RHCOS is the default.
