Red Hat has announced the general availability of OpenShift GitOps and OpenShift Pipelines, new features of Red Hat OpenShift. These capabilities help better unite application development and IT operations by enabling the teams to work together earlier in the development process while helping to deliver greater security, predictability and visibility throughout the entire application lifecycle.
OpenShift GitOps, built from the open source Argo CD project, enables IT teams to implement GitOps workflows for cluster configuration and application delivery.
By implementing a GitOps framework, updates and changes are pushed through declarative code, automating infrastructure and deployment requirements, and CI/CD, helping organizations to realize faster, more secure, scalable software development.
Additionally, OpenShift GitOps increases visibility into the state of clusters and applications and corrects deviations from the desired state if needed.
Based on the Tekton open source project, OpenShift Pipelines is designed to run each step of the CI/CD pipeline in its own container and allows each step to scale independently to meet the demands of the pipeline.
OpenShift Pipelines provides a streamlined experience, enabling full control over a team’s delivery pipeline, plugins and access control with no central CI/CD server to manage.
OpenShift GitOps and OpenShift Pipelines are now available through the OperatorHub for subscribers to all Managed OpenShift services and the self-managed OpenShift Container Platform and OpenShift Platform Plus running Red Hat OpenShift 4.7 and higher.
