OpenShift Quick Start

David Pitt AWS, DevOps, Docker, Microservices, OpenShift, openshiftseries Leave a Comment

Our previous blog in the series introduced RedHat’s OpenShift solution that provides a way for enterprise teams to implement their own PaaS. Essentially, it sits atop the Docker-based Kubernetes platform to provide a ready-to-use DevOps platform.

This blog introduces two hands-on exercises (taken from our OpenShift Course), that work to walk you through the following tasks:

– Installing OpenShift locally
– Adding a Container with an API service to a Pod

Unfortunately, it will take more than this quick start blog to get OpenShift installed and enabled in an enterprise. That said, developers, system admins, and any party that may be working on or responsible for the platform, will benefit from understanding how to get OpenShift up and running on a local machine as shown in this blog.
