To quickly start up an OpenShift cluster locally inside of a virtual machine (VM), you can use Red Hat Code ReadyContainers.
CodeReady Containers is an easy way to try or develop with OpenShift on your local machine. The A preconfigured OpenShift cluster is tailored for a laptop or desktop development making it easier to get going quickly with a personal cluster.
CodeReady Containers requires a hypervisor to run the VM containing OpenShift. Depending on your host operating system, you have the choice of the following hypervisors:
- macOS: xhyve (default), VirtualBox
- GNU/Linux: KVM (default), VirtualBox
- Windows: Hyper-V (default), VirtualBox
