Red Hat, Microsoft co-develop OpenShift offering on public Cloud

Bengaluru, May 9 (IANS): Open Source Solutions leader Red Hat and Microsoft have co-developed OpenShift offering in the public Cloud that will empower enterprise developers to run container-based applications on Microsoft Azure on-premises.

The solution combines the power of Red Hat OpenShift enterprise Kubernetes — an open-source container-orchestration system for automating management of containerised applications — platform and Microsoft’s public Cloud Azure.

Red Hat OpenShift on Azure would be available in preview in the coming months.

“By extending our partnership with Microsoft, we are able to offer the industry’s most comprehensive Kubernetes platform on a leading public Cloud, providing the ability for customers to more easily harness innovation across the hybrid Cloud without sacrificing production stability,” Paul Cormier, President, Products and Technologies at Red Hat, said in a statement.

Red Hat OpenShift on Azure would be jointly engineered and designed to reduce the complexity of container management for customers.

“Microsoft and Red Hat are aligned in our vision to deliver simplicity, choice and flexibility to enterprise developers building cloud-native applications,” added Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Cloud and Enterprise Group at Microsoft.

“We are combining both companies’ leadership in Kubernetes, hybrid Cloud and enterprise operating systems to simplify the complex process of container management, with an industry-first solution on Azure,” Guthrie added.

When customers choose Red Hat OpenShift on Azure, they would receive a managed service backed by operations and support services from both companies.
