Container Service Platform Upgrade

The ITS Container Service is undergoing several exciting changes.


A new hosting environment is now available in Amazon Web Services (AWS). The new environment is a fully-managed solution from Amazon and Red Hat called Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA). This new environment replaces an existing environment in AWS that has been managed by ITS since 2019.

Several service upgrades were rolled out with the new environment. See these in the Benefits & New Features section. The new environment has been in production since May 2023. The existing hosting decommissioned on August 24, 2023.


Additionally, a new container hosting environment will be available in on-campus data centers. This environment caters to those containerized applications that require lower latency access to on-campus data such as the Enterprise Data warehouse, MiDatabase, or MiStorage.
