The same OpenShift code base can be deployed to a number of different form factors. These can include planet wide Public Cloud implementations, third party managed service offerings, a private owner-operated deployment on the company Intranet through to local installation on your own workstation. This makes for a very convenient platform for evaluating, learning and testing OpenShift based workloads. Skills developed on a local instance are transferable to more complex distributed topologies. We summarise one of the local installation options known as “oc cluster up/down“. So sit back and let Taffy with a little help from her friends show you how to get started on Linux, Mac OS/X or Windows 10 environments. This lab is another in the OpenShift MiniLabs series.
