Red Hat Extends OpenShift Control Into AWS

May 14, 2020 · Dan Meyer | Editor-in-Chief  ·

Red Hat expanded managed support of its bread-and-butter OpenShift platform to Amazon Web Services (AWS) allowing for an enterprise-focused Kubernetes service that is jointly managed by both vendors. The move follows up on a similar launch last year with Microsoft’s Azure cloud.

The Amazon Red Hat OpenShift product allows customers to more easily build and deploy OpenShift applications and clusters on the AWS cloud and in a hybrid-cloud environment. Those containerized applications will be able to natively integrate with AWS’ more than 170 cloud-native services and be managed through the traditional AWS interface. This will include billing and support conducted through a customer’s AWS client.

Sathish Balakrishnan, VP for hosted platforms at Red Hat, explained in a blog post that the move combines the support models from both vendors to help enterprises more fully embrace a cloud-native future.
