Container Service

Access to on-campus resources Services hosted on-campus will need to allow access for Container Service applications. Firewall rules for on-campus systems that your application depends upon will need to be opened to compute nodes within the OpenShift cluster. The full subnet range will need to be specified, as nodes could have any IP in the range. In the production cluster your application will have an IP from within these ranges:
Overview Developers may wish to access the fully-managed RDS shared databases that the MiDatabase team makes available to Container Service customers from outside of the production Container Service cluster. For data security and reliability reasons, the shared MariaDB RDS instance is only accessible from within the Container Service cluster, and via the phpMyAdmin instance listed below.
