[PAAS] Openshift Enterprise @ University
April 24, 2015
The Middleware Services Group within Information Technology Services (ITS) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill needed a comprehensive, dynamic solution for frequent server provisioning requests and, in particular, managed servers. Without such a solution, the likelihood that users would employ outside vendors significantly increased. Use of outside vendors would potentially increase security concerns, present additional costs, and further complicate system administration. Moving to a fully-interoperable Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, built on OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat®, has allowed the middleware services team to deliver a flexible development and hosting environment that has fostered innovation and increased peace of mind.
