OpenShift is a managed platform from Red Hat for containerised software deployment and management. It combines Kubernetes and Docker along with DevOps tools for rapid application development.
OpenShift may be used in a number of ways:
- Standalone on a developer’s laptop
- On Red Hat’s public cloud
- On Red Hat’s private cloud
- On your own private cloud
The Instana Agent can be deployed in any of the above environments. The Instana Agent is deployed as a Daemon Set targeted to run on selected Nodes. The Agent will automatically detect all the technology stacks deployed to the Pods on each Node, load the appropriate sensors and start sending metric data immediately. An example YAML file is available in the documentation.
