An introduction to cloud native development with Red Hat OpenShift
Cloud native development is an approach to building and updating responsive, scalable, and fault-tolerant applications across your cloud infrastructure, whether on public, private, or hybrid clouds.
Cloud native development is commonly performed within a centralized application development environment that each team member can access. Each member shares access to a library of tools and dependencies they are able to self-serve. This provides a consistent set of tools that are available to any developer in the team without causing compatibility issues with their personal hardware.
Red Hat OpenShift is an enterprise container orchestration solution that provides a holistic, consistent experience for building, deploying and running your applications, and for self-service provisioning of cloud native development environments for developers, allowing teams to work together quickly responding to business needs. Using Kubernetes and Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces provides any member of the development or IT team with a consistent, secure, and zero-configuration development environment.
Red Hat OpenShift Dev Spaces and Red Hat OpenShift Wazi Dev Spaces do this by providing a developer workspace server and cloud Integrated Development Environment (IDE), based on Eclipse Che and purpose built for cloud native development. The workspace is defined as project code files and all of their dependencies necessary to edit, build, run, and debug the project code within that workspace. The workspace is defined as project code files and becomes part of the project so it is shared by the entire team. Each workspace has its own private IDE hosted within it that is available through a web browser.
