Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?

What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.

Hey Tate: Libvirt Virtualization and running ipa-server for DNS to resolve Openshift routes on the network

Hello, my name is Christopher Tate and I want to show you how to set up virtualization and a virtual machine for DNS and Identity Management to open our OpenShift web console and routes to the network.

In my previous videos, I showed you how to install OpenShift with valid SSL certificates.

Hey Tate: Step by step securing OpenShift and routes with SSL certificates for development.
