APPLICATION ON-BOARDING
TO OPENSHIFT WITH BIQMIND

Biqmind’s team of certified specialists can enable your teams to containerize and on-board applications and workloads to Red Hat® OpenShift® unlocking its benefits to rapidly deliver business value.

With benefits of increased development speed and scalability, containers are becoming the de-facto technology for cloud-native application development. A containerized architecture provides a standard approach to split up applications into easily distributed and scalable objects. Architecting applications in this way provides operation teams the flexibility to deploy how they see fit; whether that is on physical or virtual machines, on cloud or on-prem. This flexibility enhances workload management and makes it easier to build systems that are inherently fault-tolerant and elastic. 

As an enterprise-grade developer-friendly container platform, Red Hat OpenShift empowers developers to innovate and gives them the ability to deliver applications to production quicker. Developer needs are addressed with inbuilt tools including developer console, OpenShift Do (odo), CI/CD features and self-service capabilities. An application-centric web console (UI) enables developers to quickly build code, deploy containers and link services.
