Red Hat has today announced the general availability of OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform. The new offering brings Red Hat’s container platform as a managed service offering to enterprise customers who want to build, launch, and manage applications on OpenShift Dedicated with Google Cloud Platform as their underlying cloud infrastructure.
Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager, OpenShift, Red Hat, said, “With OpenShift Dedicated, OpenShift serves as the abstraction layer that works across multiple clouds. By expanding OpenShift Dedicated to now include Google Cloud Platform, our customers’ apps that run on OpenShift Dedicated can also take advantage of Google Cloud Services, furthering our vision for a truly portable platform across the multiple cloud and infrastructure platforms.”
With the availability of OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform, users can speed adoption of containers, Kubernetes, and cloud-native application patterns, benefiting from Red Hat’s deep enterprise experience. Users also benefit from Google’s global, container-optimized infrastructure and can more easily augment their applications with Google’s ecosystem of data analytics, machine learning, compute, network, and storage services.
Red Hat introduced OpenShift Dedicated in December 2015 to help customers who wanted to accelerate their adoption of containers and cloud-native application patterns, but wanted to shift the bulk of their focus to application development and deployment rather than administrative and operational management tasks. With OpenShift Dedicated, Red Hat acts as the service provider, managing OpenShift Dedicated and offering industry-leading support, helping to shorten time to value and free up valuable time and resources for customers.
OpenShift Dedicated is built on the same code base as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (an enterprise-scale, customer-managed platform) enabling customers to easily move their workloads across public and private clouds. To help buy zithromax users operationalize containers, OpenShift Dedicated – along with the rest of the OpenShift portfolio – brings a more secure, enterprise-ready container platform based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat’s trusted and proven enterprise Linux platform.
Nan Boden, head of Technology Partners, Google Cloud, said, “Customers consistently tell us that they are looking for open solutions that will enable them to use both public and private infrastructure; they want choice. Red Hat has been an essential partner in making Kubernetes available to enterprises looking for the support and flexibility to manage a hybrid cloud. We are deeply committed to working with partners like Red Hat to help our customers operate in a digital world.”
OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform includes:
- Single-tenant isolation and a resource pool of 100GB SSD-based persistent storage, 48TB network iops, and nine nodes to deploy container-based applications.
- Administrative and security controls, enabling customers to customize and more securely access their cloud environments using VPN and Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) functions.
- Access to Red Hat JBoss Middleware container-optimized services, integration and business process capabilities from applications developed and deployed on OpenShift.
- Availability across all six worldwide Google regions.
- Integration with Google Cloud services, including Google Cloud PubSub, Google Big Query, and Google Cloud Big Table.
In addition to these capabilities, Red Hat also offers professional services to help customers migrate container workloads, adopt continuous delivery and DevOps processes, and build microservices-based apps with OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform. And, via Red Hat Open Innovation Labs and Red Hat Consulting workshops, Red Hat can help customers build a blueprint for their digital transformation initiatives, alongside a specialized team of Red Hat technical consultants.
