What's the best way to install, manage and upgrade Operators and their dependencies in a cluster? Operator Lifecycle Manager (OLM) is a core component of OpenShift. OLM is the Kubernetes feature/function that enables the deployment, management, and lifecycle management of all the Operators that make up OpenShift itself and the Operator-managed applications deployed.

In this stream, we take an in-depth look at the components of OLM and how they work together to manage everything from cluster deployment and upgrades to on-demand databases and services.

If you want an overview of Operators and their role in OpenShift, episode 9 of the Ask an OpenShift Admin livestream is a great place to start.
