PaaS: OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat
PaaS: OpenShift by Red Hat
Break down IT productivity barriers with a Platform-as-a-Service
In the effort to deliver more applications faster, many IT organizations are met by chronic productivity roadblocks. Red Hat believes the path to better IT efficiency and innovation lies in the cloud–via public Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) with OpenShift Online by Red Hat® or private PaaS with Red Hat's award-winning OpenShift Enterprise.
Increase IT productivity and efficiency with a PaaS cloud by Red Hat
OpenShift alleviates barriers to IT productivity by:
Choose what works best for your developers
OpenShift gives developers more choice—of interfaces, languages, frameworks, services, clouds, elasticity, and infrastructure. It also offers multiple interaction models, which let developers use a rich set of command-line tools, a powerful multidevice web console, or an Eclipse-based IDE like Red Hat JBoss Developer Studio.
Auto-scale to meet changing demands
Scale applications automatically to handle increased traffic and demand on your applications. Through OpenShift, you can deploy an application with scaling either enabled or disabled. If you deploy your application with scaling disabled, what you deploy is what you'll have, whether it's in 1 gear or several.
Avoid lock-in with application portability
Built with standard language and middleware runtimes, any application written on OpenShift can easily be moved to another environment that supports the same languages, which prevents lock-in.
Exploit the benefits of open source
Built on fully open source technologies, you control your particular implementation. You aren't restricted to the technology and business roadmap of a specific vendor—so you have visibility into the technology on which you're basing your business. And open source offers another benefit: the ability to collaborate with other communities and companies to drive innovation in areas that are important to you.
Build a stronger cloud on rock-solid technologies
Public or private PaaS?
Why not both? The OpenShift platform is available in 2 different consumption models from Red Hat:
OpenShift Online is Red Hat’s hosted public PaaS that offers an application development, build, deployment, and hosting solution in the cloud.
- A public PaaS that lets applications scale automatically in an elastic cloud environment
- Faster time to market
- Free sign-up: Available for developers to check out all the great features and capabilities, and start coding and running applications on OpenShift Online today

OpenShift Enterprise takes the same open source PaaS platform that powers the OpenShift Online hosted service and packages it for customers who want an on-premise or private cloud deployment.
- A private PaaS that you control and manage within the constraints of your enterprise standards
- Increased developer productivity, streamlined application service delivery, and an elastic, on-demand cloud platform
