Introducing Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes

Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management for Kubernetes (RHACM) provides a unified, centrally managed solution for customers with Kubernetes deployed across multiple environments.

Customers leveraging Kubernetes in multiple and/or hybrid environments often face challenges such as multiple management consoles, disparate UIs, alternating between logins, as well as other difficulties when balancing different management platforms.

What is RHACM?

RHACM provides a single, central point of control and management under Red Hat OpenShift where customers can manage all of their Kubernetes clusters, regardless of environment. Instead of hopping between various cloud provider consoles, or on-prem management tools, customers now have a single view to create, update, and destroy clusters reliably, consistently, and at-scale across their hybrid cloud deployments, whether they’re running across physical, virtual, private or public cloud environments, and at the edge. Customers gain the ability to scale applications seamlessly from development to production, helping enable application availability and reduce costs.

Benefits of RHACM:

  • True, unified cluster management: Single-view, central console under OpenShift for all Kubernetes clusters in any environment
  • Policy-based governance, risk, & compliance: Centrally defined policies to automate configuration, provide and maintain consistency of security controls as required by regulatory, industry, or corporate standards. Customers can now enforce compliance policies with each new cluster, at scale, allowing their clusters to grow and remain compliant to governance/corporate standards
  • Advanced application lifecycle management: Enables customers to use open standards to automate application deployments using placement policies that are integrated into existing CI/CD pipelines and governance controls

RHACM gives customers the visibility, governance, and control they need to easily manage, grow, advance their containerized environments, regardless of where they are on their application and infrastructure modernization journey. It provides customers with a simple way to set up their first containerized environment, and provides advanced management features like policy enforcement and governance controls to accelerate successful, stable container deployments. No longer do customers need to hop between consoles, providers, and tools to manage their Kubernetes clusters across diverse environments.

Now customers can use a single platform, OpenShift with RHACM, to manage all of their clusters regardless of environment, bringing simplicity, power, insight, and flexibility under a centralized solution.
