In June 2015, OpenShift announced the general availability of OpenShift Enterprise 3 by Red Hat. This major release of OpenShift Enterprise (OSE) was driven by the use of innovative open source technologies. Core to this release is the product’s ability to leverage docker formatted containers and Kubernetes orchestration. This will enable users to run containerized JBoss Middleware, multiple programming languages, databases and other modern application runtimes at cloud scale. OpenShift Enterprise 3 offers a DevOps experience that enables developers to automate the application build and deployment process within a secure, enterprise-grade immutable application infrastructure.

Red Hat has updated its OpenShift Enterprise 3 PaaS with native support for Docker containers and Kubernetes orchestration, which, combined with its Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7 (RHEL 7) operating system, supports Web-scale and enterprise container applications from the OS to application runtimes. Having already wisely placed its bet on Docker containers, Red Hat is now somewhat boldly backing the Kubernetes container engine for orchestration, which vies with other software such as Docker Swarm and Apache Mesos among users, based on our research. Red Hat rolled out some high-profile OpenShift Enterprise 3 PaaS users at its recent summit, highlighting use cases in faster DevOps releases and greater efficiency for developers, hardware and software.
