Deploying enterprise-grade runtime components into Kubernetes can be daunting. You might wonder:
- How do I fetch a certificate for my app?
- What’s the syntax for autoscaling resources with the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler?
- How do I link my container with a database and with a Kafka cluster?
- Are my metrics going to Prometheus?
- Also, how do I scale to zero with Knative?
Operators can help with all of those needs and more. In this article, I introduce three Operators—Runtime Component Operator, Service Binding Operator, and Open Liberty Operator—that work together to help you deploy containers like a pro.

Developing applications on a Kubernetes distribution like Red Hat OpenShift—or on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), or by using our Universal Base Images—is easier with Red Hat’s build of Node.js. The latest update of Red Hat Runtimes now includes Node.js 12.4.1, which provides a supported runtime for LTS releases. This new Red Hat build of Node.js together with the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8.1 provides a number of new features and enhancements compared to Node.js 10.
This article focuses on these new features and enhancements.

One question, which is often asked of me is “How do I quickly get new features into production?” This is the whole idea of microservices, to quickly move features into production. At this year’s Red Hat Summit, I spoke to this during my OpenShift Application Runtimes session, introducing it as an upcoming product.
