Red Hat and AWS have announced Amazon Red Hat OpenShift, a jointly-managed and jointly-supported enterprise Kubernetes service on AWS.
“Amazon Red Hat OpenShift will offer customers the ability to launch Red Hat OpenShift clusters and provide the benefit of an AWS integrated experience for cluster creation and management, AWS Console listing, on-demand (hourly) billing model, single invoice for AWS deployments and the ability to contact AWS for support,” said Sathish Balakrishnan, Red Hat’s VP of Hosted Platforms, in a blog post.
With Amazon Red Hat OpenShift, IT organizations can more quickly build and deploy applications in AWS on Red Hat’s enterprise Kubernetes platform, using the same tools and APIs. Developers will be able to build containerized applications that integrate natively with the more than 170+ integrated AWS cloud-native services to enhance agility, innovation and scalability.
With Amazon Red Hat OpenShift, customers gain: the world’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform, already used by more than 2,000 customers globally; extensive, native integration with AWS services; and a clear path to hybrid cloud deployments through Red Hat OpenShift.
Amazon Red Hat OpenShift is currently preparing for an early access program.
