SQL Server on OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) offers many advantages for DevOps because of its consistent, isolated, and reliable behavior across environments, ease of use, and manageability. Applications can be built on top of SQL Server containers and run without being affected by the rest of the environment. This isolation makes SQL Server in containers ideal for production deployment scenarios and DevOps processes.
