We are a midsize company, and we are using Jenkins as our CI/CD tool on Red Hat OpenShift. We anticipate to grow bigger and are planning to have multiple Jenkins per squad. We are fighting the battle of Jenkins on EC2 vs RedHat keeping in mind

If you're already on openshift, also take a look at openshift pipelines, which is based on Tekton. It's Kubernetes native and may make your life (LCM) a bit easier.
