2 of 3 Tipping The Cap: Why Dyn Helps Power Red Hat's OpenShift INTERNET PERFORMANCE. DELIVERED. CASE STUDY Tipping The Cap: Why Dyn Helps Power Red Hat's OpenShift For more than 20 years, Red Hat has been carrying the flag of open source software development for enterprise IT, helping provide solutions for more than 90% of the Fortune 500 via a wide array of products and services. One of those products is the platform as a service (PaaS) offerings known as OpenShift Online and OpenShift Enterprise. The former is available publicly and makes cloud-based application development, building, deployment and hosting available, while the latter is geared toward those with either on-premise or private cloud deployments. As OpenShift was preparing to make its impact back in the summer of 2011, a DNS provider was needed as when users began to create applications with centralized distribution and wildcard layers, more and more gears would need to be created. With every gear needing a DNS entry, more gears meant more of a potential bottleneck with all of the entries being needed. That's where the Dyn Managed DNS solution came in, especially its API. Now integrated with OpenShift, records are created with little to no delay, keeping application creation fast and RedHat users happy. "OpenShift has hundreds of thousands of records, a preference for the command line, and sometimes logins for reports," Principal OpenShift Architect and Red Hat Online Operations Manager Mike McGrath said, "Our product and Dyn's DNS take care of themselves as everything is automated." Since launch, Dyn and Red Hat have continued to work together on even deeper integrations for OpenShift. At the start, minimizing the amount of time lookups took with the integration wasn't an impending Dyn priority. To help assist with any subsequent support requests, McGrath and team would send scripts to Dyn support personnel, which would be updated so everyone was looking at the same data. Other providers may not have not bothered, but Dyn was committed to building the mutually beneficial relationship.
