Introducing the Multicloud GitOps pattern

Organizations are aiming to develop and deploy applications on an open hybrid cloud in a stable, simple, and secure way. This hybrid strategy includes multicloud deployments where workloads might be running on different clusters and on different clouds - private or public. This strategy also requires an infrastructure-as-code approach that manages versions and deployments based on specific configurations.

The Multicloud GitOps pattern addresses these requirements. With the Multicloud GitOps pattern, you can determine:

The pattern is derived from work done by the Red Hat Portfolio Architecture team

  • How to use a GitOps approach to manage multiple cloud deployments in both public and private clouds.
  • How to centrally manage multiple clusters, including workloads.
  • How to securely manage secrets across multicloud deployments.

Red Hat Technologies

  • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (Kubernetes)
  • Red Hat Advanced Cluster Management (Open Cluster Management)
  • Red Hat OpenShift GitOps (ArgoCD)
  • Hashicorp Vault


At a high level this requires a management hub, for DevOps and GitOps, and infrastructure that extends to more than one managed clusters running on private or public clouds.
