The Carolina CloudApps service is a managed platform that provides an environment for developing and deploying web applications.  It utilizes the RedHat OpenShift Enterprise Platform as a Service (PaaS) solution to provide isolated, multi-tenant containers for application development.  ITS centrally manages the hardware and operating system infrastructure in addition to the platform and programming language software.  This allows campus developers to focus on application development and not infrastructure management.
