Red Hat has introduced Red Hat OpenShift 4, the next generation of its trusted enterprise Kubernetes platform, reengineered to address the complex realities of container orchestration in production systems. OpenShift 4 is designed to deliver a cloud-like experience across the hybrid cloud by driving automated updates across Kubernetes deployments everywhere. Paired with enhanced developer flexibility and backed by Kubernetes Operators, this helps to lay a more secure and consistent foundation for modern and emerging cloud-native workloads. More than 1,000 organizations across industries and around the world, including ANZ Bank, Banco Santander, Cathay Pacific, Copel Telecom, GE, Lufthansa Technik, Macquarie Bank, Miles and More GmbH, Paychex, Porsche Informatik, Sabre, Swisscom AG, Via Varejo, and X by Orange, and this year’s Red Hat Innovation Awards winners BP, Deutsche Bank, Emirates NBD, HCA Healthcare, and Kohl’s use OpenShift to accelerate application development and delivery.

Red Hat OpenShift 4 simplifies hybrid and multicloud deployments to accelerate how IT organizations deploy new applications, helping businesses to thrive and differentiate themselves in an ever-increasing set of competitive markets.
Designed for diverse environments, Red Hat OpenShift 4 ushers in the next era of the Kubernetes standard to automate and operationalize best practices for modern application platforms. Red Hat OpenShift 4 operates as a unified cloud experience for the hybrid world, and enables an automation-first approach with Self-managing platform for hybrid cloud, Adaptability and heterogeneous support, Streamlined full stack installation and Simplified application deployments and lifecycle management.
