In my last post I discussed about technical capabilities of OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) and the value it brings to cloud native application developers and administrators. In this post, I’ll discuss about OpenShift subscription models and sizing guidelines as recommended by Red Hat. This will clarify some of the questions such as — how the OCP platform is priced ? how many applications I can run in my OpenShift subscription ?is there any limit of CPU and Memory usage in my OpenShift subscription ?

Before getting into the details of the above questions let us first understand what are different…

Almost all the global banks ( whom I have been working with in last 12 to 24 months) had embarked into various form of their digital transformation journey for various reasons such as — from improving customer experience in different channels to addressing recent post-pandemic scenarios for getting involved with customers in more remote and digital way…

Introduction

In 2009 when Patrick Debois and Andrew Shafer coined the term “DevOps” since then until 2013 DevOps had been always a story of internet unicorns — Etsy, Netfix, Facebook , Google, Amazon- all the engineering driven technology companies. And almost same time it started picking up momentum in Silicon Valley internet startups where cloud adoption and DevOps became the path to success in fail-fast business environment. However since 2011–12, other large companies including banks and financial services, to remain competitive in disruptive marketplace also started depending on software driven innovation and adopted new technologies of SMAC (Social-Mobile-Analytics & Cloud)…
