AWS and Red Hat extend collaboration: announcing a new managed Red Hat OpenShift service on AWS

AWS gives customers the most choice to run their containerized applications. We released Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS) to support deploying containers at scale with a fully managed Docker experience that is deeply integrated with AWS, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) to provide managed Kubernetes, AWS Fargate so customers could run containers without managing infrastructure, and we don’t plan to stop innovating for our customers.

Many of our customers also use Red Hat OpenShift to run containers on AWS, and they have frequently told us they would like the security, scalability, and reliability that you get with an AWS managed service for their OpenShift deployments. Since 2008, Red Hat and AWS have collaborated to make it easy to run Red Hat Enterprise Linux on AWS, and we are excited to expand our collaboration to introduce a new managed Red Hat OpenShift service later this year. This new service will provide a self-service experience for cluster creation and operations, deeper integrations with AWS services, on-demand (hourly) billing, a single invoice through AWS, and the ability to contact AWS for support. This new managed Red Hat OpenShift service will allow customers to deploy fully operational and managed Red Hat OpenShift clusters while leveraging the full breadth and depth of AWS.

We are very excited to be working with Red Hat to bring this managed Red Hat OpenShift experience to customers later this year. You can learn more on Red Hat’s website here and sign up if interested in getting updates here. Our plan is to continue sharing more details as we approach GA later this year, so stay tuned for more!
