OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) offers many different types of persistent storage. Persistent storage ensures that data should be insistent between builds and container migrations. When choosing a persistent storage backend to ensure that the backend supports the scaling, speed, dynamic provisioning, RWX/RWO support and redundancy that the project requires. Container-Ready Storage (CRS), or native Gluster for OCP, is defined by the concept of persistent volumes, which are OCP created objects that allow storage to be defined and then used by pods to allow for data persistence.

I’m extremely pleased to announce the latest releases of our Red Hat developer tools, available on multiple platforms. The general theme of this release is expanded usability, product integration, expanded support for Middleware products in Development Suite, plus the brand new addition of Kompose and the DevTools channel for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
This collection of tools has been assembled into an easy-to-use installer to help software developers quickly and easily put together a development environment to create containerized enterprise Java apps by installing OpenShift on their desktop. The Developer Tools Installer will automatically download, install and configure the selected tools on macOS, Windows and Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Development Suite also simplifies the installation and configuration of EAP, Fuse, and Kompose. As always, it’s available at no-cost from developers.redhat.com/downloads.
Today, Red Hat has released new versions of the following:

Red Hat Container Development Kit (CDK) provides a Container Development Environment (CDE) that allows users to build a virtualized environment for OpenShift. This environment is similar to the user’s production environment and does not need other hardware or a physical cluster. CDK is designed to work on a single user’s desktop computer.

In a previous blog post, we explained how to deploy an existing JBoss BRMS/Drools rules project onto an OpenShift DecisionServer. We created a decision/business-rules microservice on OpenShift Container Platform that was implemented by a BRMS application. The polyglot nature of a microservice architecture allowed us to use the best implementation (a rules engine) for this given functionality (business rules execution) in our architecture.
The project we used was an existing rules project that was available on GitHub. We did however not explain how one can create a project from scratch in the JBoss BRMS Business Central environment and deploy it on OpenShift Container Platform. That is what we will explore in this article.
