AWS Red Hat OpenShift Service Documentation

OpenShift in the cloud

Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA) provides an integrated experience to use OpenShift. If you are already familiar with OpenShift, you can accelerate your application development process by leveraging OpenShift APIs and tools for deployments on AWS. With ROSA, you can use a variety of AWS compute, database, analytics, machine learning, networking, mobile, and other services to build secure and scalable applications. 

ROSA is designed to move the cluster lifecycle management to Red Hat and AWS. With ROSA, you can run containerized applications with your existing OpenShift workflows and reduce the complexity of management.


Running in the cloud

ROSA is designed to deliver production-ready OpenShift that enterprises use on-premises, simplifying the ability to shift workloads to the AWS cloud as business needs change.

Deliver high-quality applications

OpenShift's self-service provisioning, security enforcement, and deployment remove barriers to development and help you build high-quality applications. 

Managed Service

ROSA is backed by an enterprise class service-level agreement (SLA).

Installation, monitoring, management, maintenance, and upgrades are performed by Red Hat site reliability engineers (SRE) covering the stacks including the control plane, worker nodes, and key services.
