Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification
Red Hat® OpenShift® Operator Certification combines the advantages of Kubernetes operators with the strength of Red Hat’s partner network.
More specifically, an operator is an application-specific controller that extends the Kubernetes API to manage the life cycle of an application.
Deploying on Red Hat OpenShift lets you take advantage of Kubernetes and containers to manage and scale your customers’ deployments. Building and certifying your operator for Red Hat OpenShift is a Red Hat recommended practice to orchestrate cloud-native applications on Kubernetes, and can help differentiate your product and company.
Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operators offer end users a broad range of applications and infrastructure that can be managed in a consistent manner, across both private and public clouds. OpenShift Certified Operators are backed by collaborative support between Red Hat and our partners, extending trust from the container platform to the application stack.
Now, partners can publish their operator and sell its corresponding application in Red Hat Marketplace.
Certification badges extend the Red Hat OpenShift Operator certification into specific functional areas or infrastructure services that are key in cloud-native deployments for our joint customers. Building on Operator certification, 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).
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.
