Azure Red Hat OpenShift is a fully managed, jointly-engineered, and enterprise-grade platform for deploying containerized applications on Microsoft Azure cloud. It is a fully managed OpenShift cluster that combines the innovation of the open-source OpenShift project with the security and stability of Azure.
Here are the steps to build Azure Red Hat OpenShift:
- Sign up for an Azure account and create an Azure subscription if you don’t already have one.
- Create a resource group to organize and manage resources for your OpenShift cluster.
- Create a virtual network and subnets to allow network communication between OpenShift nodes and control plane components.
- Create a load balancer to provide external access to your OpenShift cluster.
- Create an Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster using the Azure portal, the Azure CLI, or the Azure Resource Manager template.
- Configure your OpenShift cluster with the desired number of worker nodes, storage configuration, and security settings.
- Connect to your OpenShift cluster using the OpenShift command-line interface (CLI) and deploy your first application using the OpenShift web console or the CLI.
- Monitor and manage your OpenShift cluster using the Azure portal, the OpenShift web console, or the Azure Monitor for containers.
These steps provide a high-level overview of building an Azure Red Hat OpenShift cluster. For detailed information and best practices, refer to the Azure documentation.
