Why OpenShift?

As a long-time contributor to the upstream Kubernetes project, Red Hat has the expertise you need behind your container platform. From that expertise has come the perspective of how to enhance the power of Kubernetes with additional capabilities found from the open-source community. This broader Kubernetes ecosystem provides a wide range of choices, but finding a balance between choice and complexity can be difficult to define…and manage.

By including community-driven open source projects like Prometheus, Grafana, and kubevirt into OpenShift, you have immediate access to the value of those projects. You don’t have to spend cycles on integration and testing, just install OpenShift and have those capabilities immediately available to you.
