Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes


Main Content

To stay competitive, organizations need customized software applications to meet their unique needs, from customer engagements to new-product and services development.   Therefore the need to speed up application development, test, delivery, and deployment is becoming a necessary business competency.

Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes (RHOAR) provides a highly productive and prescriptive developer experience for creating new cloud-native apps and cloud-enable existing applications using microservices, containerization, and DevOps.  Built for OpenShift, RHOAR takes advantage of cloud computing models and DevOps practices to speed up the ability to deliver applications and services quickly and frequently.  

RHOAR offer developers flexibility and choices to build the right application with the right runtime, framework, language, and architectural style.
