One container doesn’t make up the application. So, we have ten plus containers making up one application. If one function doesn’t run, the application breaks, so it’s vital that we can bundle the containers and make sure that they will run together. Here’s where containers come in. In containers, we will make a deployment (set of containers) as a shipping document on a boat. Once onboard, it will stay or will be replaced by another (the same) container. It’s also possible to add more containers for failover and capacity.
ROSA uses CRI-O as the container runtime to deploy containers to your cluster.
Our managed ROSA service functions on two levels:
- Advanced (focusing on AWS infrastructure)
- Value Added Services (SRE, Application Operations
The focus of our advanced ROSA service
The advanced element of our managed ROSA service primarily focuses on the following aspects:
• 24/7 operation support, including support solving everyday issues, like networking and low performance
• Proactive monitoring for security, networking, or performance issues using AWS best practices
• Seamless integration into AWS native services and our AWS managed cloud service ecosystem (e.g., monitoring, audit logs, billing, and provisioning)
Our consultancy power allows us to provide customers with value-added services. Key areas are security, networking, performance, and support of customer-specific requirements.
What are the benefits of ROSA?
Our service brings economic, compliance, and efficiency advantages, including:
- Cost - ROSA brings elasticity and pay-as-you-go pricing to Red Hat OpenShift through a new Red Hat subscription. It eliminates the need for complex, multi-year contracts and enables companies to tailor Red Hat OpenShift on AWS to their business needs.
- Simplicity - With ROSA, companies can now access a Red Hat OpenShift subscription with billing and support directly from AWS. This gives the simplicity of a single provider experience and frees organizations from the procurement and operational complexities associated with having two separate providers.
- Compliance - ROSA meets important compliance guidelines, including SOC 2, ISO 27001, and PCI security standards.
- Quicker Time to Market – As an OpenShift managed by Red Hat, ROSA enables customers to easily change or add a specific application function because they don‘t have to consider other functions. This means effective DEVOPS and faster time-to-market.
ROSA – the roles and responsibilities
While Red Hat and Amazon Web Services (AWS) manage the Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, T-Systems and the customer share certain responsibilities. The ROSA services are accessed remotely, created in customer-owned AWS accounts, hosted on public cloud resources, and have an underlying platform and data security that Red Hat owns. The customer, Red Hat, and AWS share responsibility for the monitoring and maintenance of a Red Hat OpenShift Service on the AWS cluster.
