Learn how to accelerate cloud-native development with OpenShift as a service

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 growing applications, not scaling the master. It’s directly integrated into the same Kubernetes service that maintains 25 billion on-demand forecasts daily at The Weather Company®.

As the first cloud provider to integrate OpenShift 4 into an as-a-service offering, IBM added unique security and productivity capabilities designed to eliminate substantial time spent on updating, scaling and provisioning. Additionally, IBM is delivering the resiliency to handle unexpected surges and protect against attacks that lead to financial and productivity losses. The result: you can free your development teams to focus more on driving new, competitive capabilities.
