Invest your AWS committed spend on Red Hat solutions

If your organization has opted to participate in an enterprise discount program, like the one offered by Amazon Web Services (AWS), chances are that you are already familiar with the flexibility and savings you can take advantage of during your fixed-term contract. 

However, some organizations fail to use the entirety of their committed spend, which is like leaving money on the table. 

Your committed spend with AWS extends to Red Hat® solutions, which you can use to enhance your existing environment. Using solutions co-developed and managed by Red Hat and AWS, you get the tools you need to innovate efficiently, deliver high-quality customer experiences, and scale to meet changing demand, using the spend you already have.

Why Red Hat and AWS? 

Red Hat platforms Red Hat Enterprise Linux® and Red Hat OpenShift® and AWS tools can help you scale your cloud infrastructure and effectively use technology such as containers, Kubernetes, and flexible hybrid cloud architecture. Red Hat and AWS offer a hybrid cloud environment that can help you modernize IT management, reduce complexity, innovate efficiently, and prepare for the future. With Red Hat and AWS, you benefit from two leading companies that help organizations build a more unified hybrid cloud experience.
