In this chapter, you learned a lot about OpenShift architecture. You were introduced to cloud computing and was provided the most essential information about it. Later, you learned about the architecture of OpenShift: a Kubernetes cluster using Docker images with an OpenShift layer, making cluster easy, to use and allowing developers to focus on coding.
Later in the chapter, you started your own local OpenShift instance using the Minishift tool and deployed your first service on it.
In the next chapter, you will learn how to configure persistent storage for microservices deployed in the cloud.
