OpenShift Overview – What is OpenShift?
OpenShift is a cloud computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) by Red Hat. OpenShift provides a platform where developers can build and test applications in the cloud without having to concern themselves with the infrastructure.
Red Hat is a global leader in the open-source technology community. This community has helped shape OpenShift to be an advanced, secure PaaS, and fully available as an open-source solution to businesses today.

OpenShift also includes built-in support for several middleware components and development tools.
