Red Hat Announces OpenShift GitOps and OpenShift Pipelines
May 03, 2021

Red Hat announced the general availability of OpenShift GitOps and OpenShift Pipelines, new features of Red Hat OpenShift.

These capabilities help organizations to further reduce friction between development and operations teams by streamlining application development and deployment across the hybrid cloud.

DevOps methodologies promote a cultural shift by linking the work of development and operations teams into a more unified approach rather than separate silos, helping to bring applications to production more quickly. But many organizations still struggle in fully converting to DevOps, especially as much of the associated tooling is workflow- or software-specific, leading to disparate approaches across teams. OpenShift GitOps and OpenShift Pipelines help better unite application development and IT operations by enabling the teams to work together earlier in the development process while helping to deliver greater security, predictability and visibility throughout the entire application lifecycle.

DevOps is the culture most IT organizations are striving for and CI/CD is a tool that can help them get there -- but a bridge is still needed between the two. OpenShift GitOps helps to provide that bridge.

GitOps takes a developer-centric approach to building applications, using the Git repository as the single source of truth for both developers and operations teams. OpenShift GitOps, built from the open source Argo CD project, enables IT teams to implement GitOps workflows for cluster configuration and application delivery. By implementing a GitOps framework, updates and changes are pushed through declarative code, automating infrastructure and deployment requirements, and CI/CD, helping organizations to realize faster, more secure, scalable software development.

Additionally, OpenShift GitOps increases visibility into the state of clusters and applications and corrects deviations from the desired state if needed. The capability enables teams to have full visibility and traceability into changes rolled out to clusters, as every change is represented in the Git repository. This makes it easier to achieve consistency across Kuberenetes clusters spanning the open hybrid cloud.

Based on the Tekton open source project, OpenShift Pipelines is designed to run each step of the CI/CD pipeline in its own container and allows each step to scale independently to meet the demands of the pipeline. For an operations team that is trying to optimize its infrastructure resources, limiting the resources required to support pipelines during quiet periods helps reduce the cost and overhead for running the pipeline the developers need.

OpenShift Pipelines provides a streamlined experience, enabling full control over a team’s delivery pipeline, plugins and access control with no central CI/CD server to manage.
