Monitoring OpenShift on Azure with CoScale

3 November 2016 / by Peter Arijs posted in OpenShift, Container monitoring

As containers are becoming the preferred way to rapidly build and deploy applications, organizations are also starting to look at managed platforms to host their containerized applications.

For enterprises that don’t want to bother with an on-premises installation, but still want a private OpenShift instance, hosting on Microsoft Azure is an interesting alternative.

In this blog post we will explain how to monitor an OpenShift environment on Azure, using a private CoScale instance on Azure. This is the result of a partnership between CoScale, Microsoft and Red Hat, which was also presented at the Web Summit online masterclass on November 3rd 2016.
