Red Hat Recognized as a Leader in 2023 Gartner® Magic Quadrant™ for Container Management


Red Hat has been positioned by Gartner as a Leader in the first Magic Quadrant for Container Management for its Red Hat OpenShift offering.1 The evaluation was based on specific criteria that analyzed the company’s overall completeness of vision and ability to execute.

Red Hat OpenShift is a fully integrated application platform powered by Kubernetes that provides a consistent experience across hybrid environments — from the datacenter, to the cloud, to the edge. With Red Hat OpenShift, organizations have a unified platform to build, modernize and deploy applications at scale, with key developer tools, operations services, and security and compliance capabilities integrated directly into the platform. Available in both fully managed or self-managed options, Red Hat OpenShift runs wherever and however customers need.

This recognition follows Red Hat’s inclusion as a Challenger in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms earlier this year. With DevSecOps tools integrated within the OpenShift platform, organizations can more securely build, modernize and run applications at scale, with support for even the most demanding workloads including AI/ML, edge and more. We believe the combined recognition showcases Red Hat OpenShift not only as a container management and infrastructure platform, but as a holistic application development solution that continues to evolve and add capabilities to best meet customer needs today and in the future.

Magic Quadrant reports are a culmination of rigorous, fact-based research in specific markets, providing a wide-angle view of the relative positions of the providers in markets where growth is high and provider differentiation is distinct. Providers are positioned into four quadrants: Leaders, Challengers, Visionaries and Niche Players. The research enables you to get the most from market analysis in alignment with your unique business and technology needs.

We believe our recognition as a Leader in the Container Management Magic Quadrant, combined with our previous recognition as a Challenger in the latest Gartner Magic Quadrant for DevOps Platforms, validates Red Hat OpenShift as a complete solution, helping organizations be ready for today while also building for tomorrow.
