Member Article achieves Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification for its serverless container engine Ocean

Spot, a leading provider of software for modern CloudOps, this week announced that Ocean by Spot has achieved Red Hat Operator certification for OpenShift.

Using Ocean on Red Hat OpenShift, companies have access to a fully managed data plane service to run pods and containers without the burden of having to deal with maintaining, patching, scaling, securing and life-cycling the underlying worker nodes infrastructure.

The Ocean by Spot Kubernetes Operator running on Red Hat OpenShift allows CloudOps teams to focus on building and managing applications rather than managing the infrastructure of their Kubernetes environments.

Ocean by Spot is a proven Kubernetes data plane service that provides a serverless infrastructure engine for running containers. Building on Spot’s advanced predictive analytics and automation, Ocean continuously monitors and analyzes compute infrastructure to understand and predict pod, container, and application resource needs.

Using this analysis, Ocean continuously optimizes cloud resource allocation in real-time, ensuring dependable performance, fast scalability, and up to 90% lower cloud infrastructure costs.

The Spot certified operator for OpenShift provides a new way of controlling an Ocean group from the Kubernetes cluster. This operator allows DevOps teams to create, configure, and manage Ocean clusters by working with standard Kubernetes API. With the operator, users can now create, update, delete and monitor an Ocean group from an existing OpenShift cluster, using standard kubectl commands.

“Companies deploying cloud-native infrastructure solutions realize the critical importance of having the right automation products to solve the undifferentiated heavy lifting infrastructure management challenges,” said Amiram Shachar, CEO and co-founder of Spot.

“Leading companies are turning to Spot’s Ocean solution rather than stitching together a patchwork of tools and do-it-yourself solutions because it gives them the confidence to know that their cloud-native applications always have the ideal infrastructure.”

With this new certified integration, Red Hat OpenShift customers running the Ocean certified operator gain access to Spot’s advanced analytics and automation.

This includes a fully managed data plane service to run containers, without the need to manage the underlying cloud infrastructure. OpenShift customers running Ocean will also now gain an understanding of how much resource each cloud application needs to ensure they can be smoothly migrated from private to public clouds.
