  The last mile for any enterprise IT system is the application. In order to enable those applications to function properly, an entire ecosystem of services, APIs, databases and edge servers must exist.

The breadth and reach of the OpenShift marketplace

In 2017, at a time when we are often drowning in data, we can still struggle to understand the dynamics of any given market. Sometimes this is because accounting guidelines prevent or discourage private or public companies from disclosing information. Other times the data is overly transparent, but it can also be meaningless without the […]

How to use GPUs in OpenShift and Kubernetes

How to use GPUs in OpenShift and Kubernetes

Running general-purpose compute workloads on Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) has become increasingly popular recently in a wide range of application domains, mirroring the increased ubiquity of deploying applications in Linux containers. Thanks to community participant Clarifai, Kubernetes became able to schedule workloads depending on GPUs beginning with version 1.3, enabling us to develop applications that are on the cutting edge of both trends with Kubernetes or OpenShift.

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?
