Enterprises are moving towards a DevOps culture; they’re trying to retire the technical debt and move away from monolithic application management and support. To that end, OpenShift is fast becoming the defacto standard in container management and orchestration, partially because of Red Hat’s history of the goto operating system in enterprise applications and partly to ensure that customers avoid any hint of vendor lock-in with the hyperscale providers managed Kubernetes/Container offerings. When organisations look to modernise they’re looking at Kubernetes, and the clear choice for the enterprise is Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
When we look at this digital transformation, two things have been happening, transformation to the cloud and transformation of the datacentre.
The cloud: the challenge here is that when these plans were drawn up, it the cost business case was typically predicated on the basis that all the workloads could be migrated to the cloud, using the 6 Rs, and predominately that meant either Rehost or Replatform.
