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. Red Hat OpenShift is a popular choice as it provides an enterprise-grade container platform based on Docker and Kubernetes in a variety of consumption models, from fully hosted to on-premises. 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.
