Industrial use cases : Openshift

What is OpenShift?

RedHat OpenShift is a Kubernetes container platform that provides a trusted environment to run enterprise workload. OpenShift helps you to develop and deploy applications to one or more hosts.

What does OpenShift use for?

Businesses depend on IT to drive innovation in the digital economy. It is very important for industries to eliminate unnecessary downtime that often occurs between coding and deployment of applications, so organizations can deliver the improvements in business demands in weeks or even days, rather than months.

How does OpenShift work?

Moving from one environment to another Container is the technology used. This could be from a developer’s laptop to a test environment, from a staging environment into production, and perhaps from a physical machine in a data center to a virtual machine in a private or public cloud.

Case Study: Cisco


Cisco’s success depends on its ability to quickly deliver innovative IT products and solutions to customers. Delays can cost the company business. To encourage speed to market and improve satisfaction, Cisco needed to keep its 1,000+ developers fully engaged in designing and building applications. They guard against high employee turnover, low productivity, and slow response times.


To meet the demanding requirements, Cisco partnered with RedHat to build its Lightweight Application Environment(LAE). Running on the OpenShift Container platform, it supports 100+ applications that powered a variety of business functions and gave developers on-demand access to the infrastructure, operating system, middleware, and system functions to develop applications without any manual provisioning.


The new LAE platform has become a catalyst for innovation and progress, enabling Developers at Cisco to get what they need, when they need it. It has reduced time-to-market, streamline infrastructure using containers, and increased operational efficiencies.

Final Voice

In the above case study of Cisco, we come to know how Cisco get benefitted by using OpenShift.
