What is OpenShift?  According to Wikipedia, OpenShift is a "supported distribution of Kubernetes using Docker containers and DevOps tools for accelerated application development," which is a good start to describing the OpenShift ecosystem — but like most software, there are several different products under the OpenShift umbrella. Let's go over a few varieties. Built around a core of Docker container packaging and Kubernetes container cluster management, OpenShift Origin is the open source upstream community project used in OpenShift Online, OpenShift Dedicated, and OpenShift Container Platform, freely available under the Apache v2 license on GitHub. OpenShift Online is Red Hat's public cloud application development and hosting service, supporting a variety of languages, frameworks, and databases via pre-build "cartridges" running under resource-quota "gears." Those interested in a private, enterprise supported version of OpenShift can opt either for OpenShift Dedicated, Red Hat's managed private cluster offering available in AWS or GCP, or OpenShift Container Platform (formerly known as OpenShift Enterprise) Red Hat's on-premises private PaaS product. Both OpenShift Dedicated and OpenShift Container Platform are built on a core of Kubernetes and Docker application containers created on a foundation of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Announced during a keynote at Red Hat Summit 2017 in Boston, MA, OpenShift.io is an open online development environment for planning, creating, and deploying hybrid cloud services. Minishift, which we will be using for the below dev deployment, is a fully functioning OpenShift Origin instance with an integrated Docker registry, running locally on your machine.
