Dotscience Achieves Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification
LONDON and SAN FRANCISCO, Calif., March 26, 2020 – Dotscience announced that it has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification. As a part of this partner ecosystem, OpenShift Operator Certification offers customers and independent software vendors (ISVs) greater confidence when building their next-generation software projects on Red Hat OpenShift, the most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes and containers application platform. As a Red Hat OpenShift Certified Operator, Dotscience makes it simple for ML teams to add OpenShift Kubernetes clusters as Dotscience deployment targets.
“Providing an end-to-end solution that solves for critical issues when developing AI applications makes AI projects faster and less risky,” said Luke Marsden, CEO and founder at Dotscience. “The Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification designation means that Dotscience is available to more ML and data science teams as a solution to simplify, accelerate and have more control of every stage of the AI model lifecycle, accelerating the business value from AI initiatives in the enterprise.”
Dotscience provides an integrated ML platform that enables data science and ML teams to collaborate efficiently as well as build, scale and deploy models – making it easier for enterprises to achieve tangible results from their AI initiatives. As a new member of the Red Hat Partner Connect program, Dotscience enables ML teams to easily create ML models in the Dotscience Hub—with the option to build the models into customized Docker images using the GitLab integration—and pushed to OpenShift clusters with a command from a Jupyter notebook or Python script, or using our GUI, CLI or API.
OpenShift is a consistent foundation to deliver Kubernetes applications, especially benefiting hybrid cloud management models. Kubernetes is the engine that powers container orchestration in OpenShift. Kubernetes Operators are a way to package an application with key human operational knowledge and best practices to automate management and deployment on top of Kubernetes. They help businesses to increase the overall manageability of production environments by reducing manual intervention and human error. To make it easier to build Kubernetes applications, Red Hat and the community created and maintain the Operator Framework, an open source toolkit to build and manage Operators in an automated way without extensive Kubernetes knowledge.
A Red Hat Certified Kubernetes Operator is continuously monitored to reduce interoperability or security risks, and is backed up by collaborative support between Red Hat and its partners.
Dotscience participated in Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification, an offering in Red Hat Partner Connect, Red Hat’s technology partner program, by which partners can certify their Operators for use on OpenShift. OpenShift Certified Operators have been additionally validated beyond the basic tests performed for the community Operators from OperatorHub.io. Dotscience has passed OpenShift Operator Certification and will be listed in the OperatorHub embedded in OpenShift and a web catalog listing of Certified Operators.
“Dotscience has achieved Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification and is part of the Red Hat Partner Connect ecosystem,” said Julio Tapia, director, Cloud Platforms ecosystem, Red Hat. “Kubernetes Operators are appealing because they help encode the human operational logic normally required to manage services running as a Kubernetes-native application and aim to make day-to-day operations easier. By providing Operators on Red Hat OpenShift, users can begin experiencing the next level of benefits from a Kubernetes-native infrastructure, with services designed to ‘just work’ across the cloud where Kubernetes runs.”
Red Hat Certified Operators in the OpenShift ecosystem provide a simplified path for software partners to deliver tested Kubernetes applications on the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. Customers and partners using custom-developed or third-party ISV Operators certified for Red Hat OpenShift can have greater confidence that these applications will increase operational efficiency of business application management when using them across a public, private or hybrid cloud architecture.
The Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification designation is awarded to Red Hat partners following validation by Red Hat. Each provider must meet testing and certification requirements to demonstrate that they can deliver a scalable, supported and consistent Operator designed for enterprise cloud deployments. The global program provides customers, ISVs and partners with the confidence that Red Hat product experts have validated a solution so that they can achieve portability and operational efficiency across hybrid and multi cloud environments.
