Azure Red Hat OpenShift
Fully managed OpenShift service, jointly operated with Red Hat
Build, deploy and scale apps on OpenShift with confidence
Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides highly available, fully managed OpenShift clusters on demand, monitored and operated jointly by Microsoft and Red Hat. Kubernetes is at the core of Red Hat OpenShift. OpenShift brings added-value features to complement Kubernetes, making it a turnkey container platform as a service (PaaS) with a significantly improved developer and operator experience.
Highly available, fully managed public and private clusters, automated operations and over-the-air platform upgrades
Built on top of upstream Kubernetes and bundled with key capabilities for unified operations as a complete platform
Joint engineering, operation and support from Microsoft and Red Hat, with multiple compliance certifications
Clusters deployed to Azure and billed to your subscription in more than 20 regions worldwide
Focus on what matters
Take advantage of the enhanced user interface for application topology and builds in the web console to build, deploy, configure and visualise containerised applications and cluster resources more easily.
Provision self-service, on-demand application stacks
Bring your code from a Git repository or an existing container image and build it using source-to-image (S2I) builds, or deploy solutions from the Developer Catalogue such as OpenShift Service Mesh, OpenShift Serverless or Knative.
Use built-in CI/CD
Automate build, test, and deployment of applications using OpenShift Pipelines, a serverless continuous integration/continuous deployment (CI/CD) system designed to scale, create a pipeline using GitHub Actions, or bring your own.
Try the rapid cloud development experience
Use Red Hat CodeReady Workspaces, a collaborative, fully containerised web IDE that runs on top of OpenShift, for a consistent, more secure, zero-configuration cloud application development experience.
Deliver applications with less operational complexity
Deploy an Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster across multiple Azure Availability Zones where supported. Azure Red Hat OpenShift is jointly operated and supported by Microsoft and Red Hat with a service-level agreement (SLA) of 99.95 per cent availability.
Control user and project access
Set up users, projects and quotas. Review the cluster capacity and utilisation, and monitor deployments using the administrator perspective in the web console.
Discover operators from the Kubernetes community and Red Hat partners
Easily install operators on your clusters for optional add-ons and shared services such as AI, machine learning, application runtimes, data, document stores, monitoring logging and insights, security and messaging services.
Automatically apply critical patch updates to clusters in Azure Red Hat OpenShift without affecting your deployed applications.
Comprehensive security and compliance, built in
Microsoft invests more than USD 1 billion annually on cybersecurity research and development.
We employ more than 3,500 security experts dedicated to data security and privacy.
Azure has more certifications than any other cloud provider. View the comprehensive list.
Flexible and on-demand pricing
Azure Red Hat OpenShift charges for the virtual machines (VMs) provisioned in the clusters and OpenShift licences based on the VM instance selected. Deploy a cluster using on-demand pricing or purchase OpenShift worker node reserved instances, whichever best meets the needs of your workload and business.
