Focus on application development with Red Hat and AWS

Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS: A cloud-native, joint solution from Red Hat and AWS

IT teams must deal with increased complexity in their systems, limited time and resources, and traditional, monolithic architectures that may need updating. Rising operating costs and the current talent shortage lead organizations to look for ways to scale and automate to develop greater flexibility, increase speed to market, and reduce costs. 

Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers can take advantage of Red Hat® OpenShift® Service on AWS to help address these challenges. Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS is a managed cloud service jointly engineered and supported by Red Hat and AWS. This edition of Red Hat OpenShift runs natively on AWS, increasing the operational efficiency of building, deploying, and scaling applications.
