ARO Workshop

OpenShift on Azure Workshop + Houston Rockets Game

February 11, 2020Houston, TexasToyota Center

Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO) is a fully managed Red Hat OpenShift service on Azure - jointly engineered, operated, and supported by Microsoft. Built upon a Kubernetes foundation and fully integrated into the Azure platform, ARO handles infrastructure and cluster management, freeing application teams to focus on delivering new software and services. ARO's seamless integration with Azure AD, hybrid networks, existing Azure resources, and CI/CD pipelines makes it an intriguing option for enterprises moving toward a cloud-first model in a complex technology ecosystem.
