MiniShift: Run OpenShift Locally

Submitted by Praveen Kumar on Monday, 10 April 2017

Section: Crisp talk of 15 mins duration Technical level: Beginner


Kubernetes is becoming the defacto standard for container orchestration. OpenShift is a Kubernetes distribution which is tailor made for enterprises. It has some extra features on top of Kubernetes to make it a full fledged container platform or platform as a service (PaaS).

Minishift provides a CLI tool for running OpenShift locally on the workstation for day-to-day use. The objective of Minishift is to make OpenShift easier for developers. The idea is to empower developers to use OpenShift on their workstations for day to day development of containerized applications. After the development they then move the application to a proper OpenShift setup which should be part of a CICD pipeline.
