Try Out The New OpenShift 3 Platform

Run it as a container

Want to get started quickly and easily? Just run OpenShift as a container by itself. Check out how at: https://github.com/openshift/origin

Spin up a full cluster

Use the Ansible Installer to spin up a full cluster on Fedora, OSX, or on a local vm.

Deploy it to the cloud

You can also try out OpenShift Origin 3 in the cloud using our setup instructions for AWS or Google Compute Engine.

What is OpenShift Origin

OpenShift Origin is the upstream open source version of Red Hat's distributed application system, OpenShift. We launched this project to provide a platform in which development teams could build and manage cloud native applications on top of Docker and Kubernetes.

Standardization through Containerization

"Standards are powerful forces in the software industry. They can drive technology forward by bringing together the combined efforts of multiple developers, different communities, and even competing vendors."

Open Source Contributions

OpenShift is about upstream collaboration as much as it's about platform as a service. Just take a look at how much we're contributing to both our own projects as well as others.

Contribute to OpenShift Origin

We know you've got great ideas for improving OpenShift Origin. So roll up your sleeves and come join us in the community.

Extend OpenShift

You can add new runtimes and frameworks to OpenShift with community cartridges and quickstarts.

The Origin architecture builds upon the flexibility and scalability of Docker and Kubernetes to deliver a powerful new Platform as a Service system.

All contributions are welcome - OpenShift uses the Apache 2 license and does not require any contributor agreement to submit patches. Please open issues for any bugs or problems you encounter, ask questions on the OpenShift IRC channel (#openshift-dev on freenode), or get involved in the Kubernetes project at the container runtime layer.

Take a look at the Trello Board

The OpenShift project roadmap lives on Trello. Here is a sampling of topics for those who want to get involved with OpenShift 3:
