Chapter 13. OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat Offline Developer Virtual Machine Image

OpenShift Enterprise helps datacenters transform the relationships between developers and operations to allow a better continuous integration and delivery experience through a DevOps methodology. However, not all developers are connected to their datacenter at all times. For these developers, the OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat Offline Developer Virtual Machine Image provides a full version of OpenShift Enterprise on a laptop or spare server. The image is fully supported by Red Hat and allows developers to experience all of the features of OpenShift Enterprise. Using this image, a mobile developer can still be productive on the platform when they are disconnected from the datacenter.
