Learning OKD (upstream for Red Hat OpenShift) on premise

Learning OKD (upstream for Red Hat OpenShift) on premise

In this session, Thomas Cameron will discuss how to learn OKD (the upstream project from which Red Hat creates the OpenShift product) in your enterprise lab or even in a homelab. When Thomas wanted to learn OKD/OpenShift, there were a ton of cloud options, but trying to figure out how to do it on premises was not trivial. This session will use nothing but zero cost Open Source software from the OKD project, but it is applicable to the commercial Red Hat OpenShift product, as well.

In this session, Thomas will go through what it takes from a hardware perspective, how to set up OpenShift in virtual machines if you have the capacity, how to set up things like storage and networking, how to install software from Github as containers, and getting started with OKD.

He will go from bare metal (or new VMs) to a demonstration of a “production” workload using WordPress and MariaDB.
