Overview of this book

For IT professionals working with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the key to maximizing efficiency is understanding the powerful and resilient options to maintain the software development platform with minimal effort. OpenShift Multi-Cluster Management Handbook is a deep dive into the technology, containing knowledge essential for anyone who wants to work with OpenShift. This book starts by covering the architectural concepts and definitions necessary for deploying OpenShift clusters. It then takes you through designing Red Hat OpenShift for hybrid and multi-cloud infrastructure, showing you different approaches for multiple environments (from on-premises to cloud providers). As you advance, you’ll learn container security strategies to protect pipelines, data, and infrastructure on each layer. You’ll also discover tips for critical decision making once you understand the importance of designing a comprehensive project considering all aspects of an architecture that will allow the solution to scale as your application requires. By the end of this OpenShift book, you’ll know how to design a comprehensive Red Hat OpenShift cluster architecture, deploy it, and effectively manage your enterprise-grade clusters and other critical components using tools in OpenShift Plus.

OpenShift Plus – a Multi-Cluster Enterprise Ready Solution

In this book, we discussed in Chapter 1, Hybrid Cloud Journey and Strategies, the main challenges related to public cloud usage, such as keeping cloud costs under control and having consistent, secure, and compliant platforms, no matter which cloud provider is being used. We also introduced some of the tools that are helpful to work with multi-clusters and help to address those challenges, from a technology perspective.

In Chapter 9, OpenShift Pipelines – Tekton, and Chapter 10, OpenShift GitOps – ArgoCD, we covered CI/CD pipelines and GitOps using OpenShift, including deployment into multiple clusters.

In Chapter 11, OpenShift Multi-Cluster GitOps and Management, we saw how to use Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management to manage and observe several clusters from a single pane, deploy workloads into many clusters at once, and also use policies to ensure all your clusters are compliant.
