Maven Multi-Module Projects and OpenShift

Maven Multi-Module Projects and OpenShift

There is no need to move away from Maven’s multi-module approach to building and deploying application when working with OpenShift, if that is a process you’re familiar with. It can become a powerful tool for helping break apart existing applications into more consumable microservices as it goes some way to enabling each component to have its own lifecycle, regardless of how the source code repository is managed. Sometimes it may require a little bit of customisation to give you the behaviour you need, and hopefully you’ll get some insight into how that customisation is achieved through this post.

Five Key Takeaways from KubeCon 2016

Five Key Takeaways from KubeCon 2016

Now that KubeCon 2016 is over, we have some time to reflect on the State of the Kubernetes project and communities, the event itself, and the marketplace going forward into 2017. Red Hat has been a part of this community since well before it was launched, but it’s incredibly important to understand how a community evolves over time. If you we’re able to attend the events in Seattle, the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has posted all of the videos online. Looking back on the events in Seattle, here are five key takeways that will continue to shape the community and market for the next few years.

What is Enterprise-Ready Kubernetes?

What is Enterprise-Ready Kubernetes?

Over two years ago, the OpenShift team made a critical decision to support both Docker containers and the emerging Kubernetes project. At the time, that decision was a classic innovator’s dilemma. Their challenge at the time was not unlike the conversations that we have with customers on a daily basis. How can their company make a transition towards becoming a more digital-native company? How can their company get there without abandoning all of their existing investments, or giving up some existing advantages they have in their marketplace? How can they avoid building a DIY platform?

Why Red Hat Chose Kubernetes for OpenShift

Why Red Hat Chose Kubernetes for OpenShift

I often get asked why Red Hat chose to standardize on Kubernetes for OpenShift, instead of going with a competing container orchestration solution. There are a number of open source container orchestration solutions available today. The OpenShift product team explored many of them, and we even explored building our own. In this blog, I will explain why we chose Kubernetes and why more than two years later, we couldn’t be happier with our decision!

Digital Transformation is More than 12-Factor Apps

Digital Transformation is More than 12-Factor Apps

A critical part of any transformation is a rationalization of where a company is today and whether or not existing assets and investments (e.g. applications, process, people, people skills, etc.) can continue to provide a competitive advantage into the future. While new technology does and will play a critical role in the transformation, it is often existing capabilities that buffer a company’s ongoing success through the transition.
