Microsoft Azure RedHat OpenShift Services
You can install fully managed OpenShift clusters using the Microsoft Azure RedHat OpenShift Services.
Kubernetes is extended by Azure Red Hat OpenShift. Kubernetes requires additional tools and resources to run containers in production. This frequently entails juggling image registries, storage management, networking solutions, and logging and monitoring tools, all of which must be versioned and tested in tandem. Building container-based apps necessitate even more effort with middleware, frameworks, databases, and continuous integration and delivery systems. All of this is combined into a single platform with Azure RedHat OpenShift Services, allowing IT teams to focus on their core competencies while offering application teams the tools they need to succeed.
To deliver an integrated support experience, Red Hat and Microsoft cooperatively built, maintained, and supported Azure Red Hat OpenShift. There are no virtual machines to manage, and there is no need for patching. Red Hat and Microsoft patch, update and monitor your master, infrastructure, and application nodes on your behalf. Your Azure Red Hat OpenShift clusters are included in your Azure bill and are deployed within your Azure subscription.
You can utilize the built-in solutions for automated source code management, container and application builds, deployments, scaling, health management, and more, or you can use your own registry, networking, storage, and CI/CD solutions. Through Azure Active Directory, Azure Red Hat OpenShift enables a single sign-on experience.

Monitoring, security, and access
Azure Red Hat OpenShift allows you to interface with Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) and leverage Kubernetes role-based access control for greater security and management (Kubernetes RBAC). You can also keep an eye on your cluster’s and resources’ health.
Node and cluster
Azure virtual machines host Red Hat OpenShift nodes. Storage may be connected to nodes and pods, and cluster components can be upgraded.
Agreement on Service Levels
A Service Level Agreement from Azure Red Hat OpenShift guarantees that the service will be available 99.95 percent of the time. See Azure Red Hat OpenShift SLA for further information.
