2-Day Azure Red Hat OpenShift Workshop

This 2-day Azure Red Hat OpenShift workshop will explore working on Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO), introduce the concepts of deploying containers, creating projects, users, volumes, quotas and managing these on ARO. Participants of this workshop will gain theoretical knowledge and benefit from hands-on experience of the important OpenShift components, design and deployment concepts and architecting and managing these on ARO.

OpenShift is the next generation Application Hosting platform by Red Hat. It is a leading hybrid cloud, enterprise Kubernetes application platform. OpenShift enables efficient container-orchestration, allowing rapid container provisioning, deploying, scaling, and management. By streamlining and automating the container automation process, OpenShift enables developers to focus on accelerating application development, updates, and product distribution.

Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides a flexible, self-service deployment of fully managed OpenShift clusters. ARO helps to maintain regulatory compliance while you focus on your application development, and your master, infrastructure, and application nodes are patched, updated, and monitored by both Microsoft and Red Hat. ARO also helps to automate source code management, container and application builds, deployments, scaling, health management and more.
