OKD is a distribution of Kubernetes optimized for continuous application development and multi-tenant deployment. OKD adds developer and operations-centric tools on top of Kubernetes to enable rapid application development, easy deployment and scaling, and long-term lifecycle maintenance for small and large teams. OKD is the upstream Kubernetes distribution embedded in Red Hat OpenShift.
OKD embeds Kubernetes and extends it with security and other integrated concepts. OKD is also referred to as Origin in github and in the documentation. The current alpha OKD 4 release corresponds to the Kubernetes distribution 1.16; the beta release will correspond to Kubernetes distribution 1.17 If you are looking for enterprise-level support, or information on partner certification, Red Hat also offers Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
Check the README file for more information on the latest release of OKD.
Standards are powerful forces in the software industry. They can drive technology forward by bringing together the combined efforts of multiple developers, different communities, and even competing vendors.
We know you've got great ideas for improving OKD and its network of open source projects. So roll up your sleeves and come join us in the community!
The OKD project roadmap lives on here. All contributions are welcome - OKD uses the Apache 2 license and does not require any contributor agreement to submit patches. Please open issues for any bugs or problems you encounter, ask questions on the OpenShift IRC channel (#openshift-dev on freenode), or get involved in the Kubernetes project at the container runtime layer.
