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.

In this chapter, we had a brief overview of Red Hat Quay, an interesting option for a container image registry. We discussed the main benefits of OpenShift Plus and why it makes sense to at least consider OpenShift Plus with your hybrid or multi-cloud strategy. Finally, we used a fictional use case to think about how the OpenShift Plus stack could be used in a practical scenario.

Wow, what a great journey so far! We have covered many things already in this book and we are so pleased that you have come along with us on this journey. We are almost at the end of our long journey here, but the best part is coming: in the next chapter, we will exercise most of what we have learned in this book using one practical example. We will have a comprehensive review of OpenShift Pipelines, GitOps, and all other tools we covered in this book using an example, practice with the concepts and tools from scratch, and have a real functional application deployed into multiple clusters in the...
