What is OpenShift Origin?

OpenShift Origin is a distribution of Kubernetes optimized for continuous application development and multi-tenant deployment. OpenShift adds developer and operations-centric tools on top of Kubernetes to enable rapid application development, easy deployment and scaling, and long-term lifecycle maintenance for small and large teams.

OpenShift embeds Kubernetes and extends it with security and other integrated concepts. An OpenShift Origin release corresponds to the Kubernetes distribution - for example, OpenShift 1.7 includes Kubernetes 1.7.

Check the OpenShift Origin README file for more information on the latest release.
