Red Hat Lowers Barriers to Hybrid Cloud Adoption with Expanded Public Offerings in AWS Marketplace

Red Hat has announced an expansion of its open solutions publicly available in AWS Marketplace, a digital catalog with thousands of software listings from independent software vendors that make it easy to find, test, buy, and deploy software that runs on Amazon Web Services (AWS). Furthering Red Hat’s commitment to customer choice and flexibility across the open hybrid cloud, customers can now use committed AWS spending to purchase and run Red Hat offerings directly through AWS Marketplace. This provides customers with an easier path to digital transformation and more efficient operations while being better able to meet dynamic market demands.

According to Gartner, “by 2025, 51% of IT spending in these four categories [application software, infrastructure software, business process services, and system infrastructure] will have shifted from traditional solutions to the public cloud, compared to 41% in 2022.” Red Hat understands that to answer this shift, customer needs must be met wherever they exist, in the data center, at the edge, or in public clouds. In response, Red Hat has expanded the public availability of its open hybrid cloud technologies in the AWS Marketplace. Any organization seeking to build an open foundation on the cloud can now turn to solutions delivered directly by Red Hat.

“As enterprises seek to address growing operational complexity and user demands through cloud services, Red Hat continues to add managed services that address an extensive list of hybrid cloud requirements. Today, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science is now generally available and publicly listed in AWS Marketplace. Red Hat OpenShift Data Science, supported on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA), is a fully-managed cloud service that provides data scientists and developers with a consistent, powerful artificial intelligence and machine-learning (AI/ML) platform for building intelligent applications,” the company said.

Built on the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform and enabled by a robust partner ecosystem, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science includes added features such as:

  • Machine learning operations (MLOps) capabilities, including an expanded user interface for machine learning projects to enhance collaboration, model building, and model serving among data scientists.
  • NVIDIA AI Enterprise software, certified to run on Red Hat OpenShift, includes key enabling technologies for the rapid deployment, management, and scaling of AI workloads.
  • Pre-integrated support for Pachyderm to build and scale containerized, data-driven ML pipelines with a data lineage provided by automatic data versioning. Pachyderm joins other leading AI/ML partners, including Anaconda, IBM, Intel, and Starburst, in supporting Red Hat OpenShift Data Science.

In addition, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka is also publicly available in AWS Marketplace. Designed to make it easier for developers to create, discover and connect to real-time data streams regardless of where they exist, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka enables developers to focus on building better applications faster, without having to worry about the underlying requirements of data collection and processing.

A flexible, open Linux foundation is critical for hybrid cloud transformation, with Red Hat Enterprise Linux providing the backbone for many organizations as they work to evolve into digital-first organizations. Multiple Red Hat Enterprise Linux offerings are now available directly in AWS Marketplace, including:

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Workstations on AWS, newly launched, provides a Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Workstation experience optimized for high-end workloads like data visualization, animation, and visual effects, medical imaging, and more, without user hardware or space requirements. Red Hat Enterprise Linux for Workstations is available in AWS Marketplace for GPU instances with NVIDIA RTX Virtual Workstation for professional design and visualization workloads powered by NVIDIA Data Center GPUs.

  • Red Hat Enterprise Linux for SAP Solutions which delivers an operating system foundation tailored to the needs of SAP workloads such as S/4HANA and SAP HANA.

Additionally, pre-configured and optimized Red Hat Enterprise Linux images for specific workloads are also available, including for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 8 with SQL Server 2019 Standard. No matter whether the Red Hat Enterprise Linux solution is chosen, each is backed by Red Hat’s enterprise-level support and expertise, which includes a detailed knowledge base, regular security errata, and more.

As the number, scale, and diversity of IT environments grow, so does the complexity. Automation tooling is vital in helping IT teams keep pace with user demands, especially an automation platform that can be consistent across environments. At AnsibleFest 2022, Red Hat announced the Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform in AWS Marketplace, delivering the same automation solution trusted by tens of thousands of IT teams to public cloud environments. Rather than having to learn a new, siloed tool, automation experts can use the same capabilities and features that they already understand across the entirety of the hybrid cloud, bringing consistency and sanity to their operations.

As organizations modernize their infrastructures, many IT teams have mandates to host their Java workloads in the cloud. As a leading open-source Jakarta EE-compliant application server, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (EAP) offers Java developers powerful management and automation capabilities designed to improve productivity, and a lightweight architecture for building and deploying modern cloud-native applications.

Today, Red Hat JBoss EAP is the first fully pay-as-you-go Red Hat offering for application services publicly available in AWS Marketplace. Customers are able to apply committed AWS spending on Red Hat solutions through AWS Marketplace, with no existing Red Hat subscription required, reducing costs and expanding their capabilities while using existing investments. This consumption model provides customers with a frictionless way to move existing applications to the cloud, while retaining support from Red Hat for updates, upgrades, and servicing.

“Red Hat is committed to making it easier for customers to purchase and deploy Red Hat solutions. To further support customers across hybrid cloud environments, Red Hat is introducing flexible methods of purchasing and deploying Red Hat solutions in the cloud. This includes investing in native offerings with public cloud providers, such as Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, channel enablement programs, and solutions available in the major cloud marketplaces. With these updated purchasing models, Red Hat intends to enable customers and partners to consume Red Hat solutions in the ways best suited for their IT and business needs,” the company said.

Stefanie Chiras, senior vice president of Partner Ecosystem Success at Red Hat, said, “By expanding Red Hat’s footprint in AWS Marketplace, we are empowering customers with a holistic approach to access, consume, and deploy open source solutions and services with greater ease and flexibility. This latest milestone in our long-standing relationship with AWS demonstrates the strength of ecosystem collaboration, bringing together Red Hat’s leading open-source technologies with the accessibility and simplified procurement offered through AWS Marketplace to deliver an enhanced customer experience, supported by an ecosystem of partner capabilities, and fueling real business outcomes in today’s hybrid cloud world.”
