Red Hat OpenShift Certification

Red Hat® OpenShift® certification combines the advantages of Kubernetes services with the strength of Red Hat’s partner network

Red Hat OpenShift Certification

As software providers embrace a cloud-native architecture for their products, it is important to ensure compatibility with the container platform that delivers Kubernetes and core application services.

Red Hat offers a certification service so our partners can verify that their product meets Red Hat standards of interoperability, security and life cycle management when deployed on Red Hat OpenShift.

Red Hat software certification means that the partner software has been optimized to work on OpenShift and provide innovative automation capabilities that customers will value

By building a broad cloud-native ecosystem with our partners, we offer end users a wide range of applications and infrastructure that can be managed in a consistent manner, across both private and public clouds. Products certified on Red Hat OpenShift are backed by collaborative support between Red Hat and our partners, extending trust from the container platform to the application stack.

Red Hat OpenShift certification is available to products that are deployed using either Helm charts or Operators. Partners can select the technology that better fits their automation needs and their customers' life cycle requirements

*Day 1 and 2 refer to phases of the application life cycle in production. Day 1= installation and configuration; Day 2 = upgrades, optimization and overall maintenance

Red Hat certification badges

Certification badges extend the Red Hat OpenShift certification into specific functional areas or infrastructure services that are key in cloud-native deployments for our joint customers. Badges indicate that the certified product delivers additional capabilities, such as conformance with Kubernetes plugin APIs like Container Storage Interface (CSI) or Container Networking Interface (CNI), or deliver a Cloud-native Network Function (CNF). Partner products that have attained these badges benefit from differentiated features and are promoted in the Red Hat certified catalog and through joint marketing activities.
