AusNimbus goes live with Red Hat OpenShift 3.3

We are excited to announce general availability of our new container deployment platform. Powered by Red Hat OpenShift, Google Kubernetes and Docker – AusNimbus enables developers to easily run, build and scale web applications in Australia without the hassle of infrastructure management.

OpenShift v3.3 with Docker and Kubernetes

OpenShift is a scalable application deployment platform – built on enterprise grade distribution of Google Kubernetes and the Docker container runtime. This new release leads the trend towards containzeration and deployment of microservices, while abstracting the complexities associated with traditional infrastructure management. While offering developers the flexibility of choice so they can focus on the application development.

  • Source-to-image builds your code for deployment into containers and associates it with appropriate runtimes and patch streams.
  • Automated Deployments let you trigger updates to applications through git hooks, testing and deploying code changes as soon as new code is pushed.
  • Rollbacks can occur automatically if your deployment fails or triggered manually if required.
  • Automated Scaling dynamically scales your application depending on demand.
  • Image Streams are associated with your applications ensuring change to upstream image (such as runtime security patches) are automatically applied.

Users on the previous platform are invited to take advantage of the free migration offer to ease the transition process.
