Migrating to a container-based, cloud-native platform with Red Hat OpenShift Porsche

Informatik decided to migrate its application infrastructure to Red Hat OpenShift. The organization has used Red Hat Enterprise Linux since 2015 and worked with datacenter provider and Red Hat partner eww ITandTEL in 2017 to establish a private cloud environment.

Based on the Kubernetes container orchestration standard, Red Hat OpenShift provides a stable container platform environment for end-user-facing applications, as well as continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) pipeline support for development teams. Porsche Informatik also adopted Red Hat Satellite, part of Red Hat Smart Management, to efficiently manage its Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat OpenShift infrastructure.

With help from eww ITandTEL and a Red Hat Technical Account Manager (TAM), the organization migrated to Red Hat OpenShift running on-premise in its datacenter in just six weeks. The platform now hosts development processes across thousands of containers on 75 nodes, used regularly by more than 350 developers.

With a container-based, cloud-native development environment, Porsche Informatik has established self-service capabilities for its development teams. Developers can provision services and infrastructure independent of the organization’s infrastructure team. Additionally, administrators can more easily implement and enforce security and other policies across teams and clusters using Red Hat OpenShift’s unified management console. Red Hat Smart Management helps keep Porsche Informatik’s Red Hat infrastructure solutions up to date, protected from vulnerabilities, and in compliance with various standards.

Porsche Informatik delivers automotive innovation faster with Red Hat OpenShift As a result, applications and services can be built, tested, and launched to market 90% faster than before.

Established collaborative community with DevOps Adopting a more agile, collaborative DevOps approach, supported by Red Hat OpenShift, has helped Porsche Informatik unite its IT teams. Now, developers, architects, infrastructure experts, and platform teams can work together more effectively to build and update innovative applications and services — in a way that removes repetitive, unnecessary work and takes advantage of their key strengths.
