Red Hat offers fully hosted and managed cloud services across hybrid infrastructure. Red Hat Cloud Services shift operational support and accountability from the user to Red Hat and the cloud providers. When it comes to the infrastructure, Red Hat takes care of everything—installation, configuration, updates, upgrades, security patches, compliance, monitoring, networks—all the mundane time-consuming tasks and responsibilities that would otherwise eat away at your productivity and slow down your development team.
Red Hat Cloud Services offer the following foundational technologies:
Red Hat OpenShift
Red Hat Cloud Services start with Red Hat OpenShift platform services, the foundation for building cloud-native applications. Red Hat OpenShift is a hosted and managed enterprise Kubernetes platform backed by all the application services you need. It is cloud agnostic, meaning Red Hat OpenShift runs natively on your choice of clouds and delivers a consistent experience.
Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka
Based on the open source Apache Kafka project, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka lets development teams incorporate streaming data into applications without having to build and manage a Kafka service at scale—a complex and time-consuming endeavor.
Apache Kafka, the next generation of messaging, is the de facto solution for real-time streaming data. Kafka is central to an event-driven architecture, delivering high volume, speed, and reliability to distributed applications.
As a managed and hosted Kafka service—fully integrated with Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat's application cloud services—Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka gives developers freedom to focus on building innovative applications more quickly, without concern for the underlying data collection and processing requirements.
Red Hat OpenShift API Management
Red Hat OpenShift API Management is a fully managed service offering application programming interface (API) life cycle management so developers can build, prototype, deploy, monitor, and share APIs from a unified, developer-friendly interface. The service also includes a fully functional API gateway and Red Hat's SSO technology.
Red Hat OpenShift API Management accelerates time to value for APIs and reduces the cost of delivering and scaling API-first, microservices-based applications.
Red Hat OpenShift Data Science
Built on the open source Open Data Hub project, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science gives data scientists and developers a platform for building intelligence into applications with AI and ML.
OpenShift Data Science offers a flexible, customizable alternative to prescriptive AI/ML suites from individual cloud providers. It provides self-service on-demand infrastructure, open source tools, a sandbox, and workflows for collaboration. Red Hat OpenShift Data Science provides a subset of more than 30 tools found in the upstream Open Data Hub project. Red Hat makes regular updates to the tools through the managed cloud service, removing the burden of integration and testing.
Instead of modeling sophisticated analytics in a separate environment, users can build AI and ML directly into the application using the same platform, so they can code with confidence and move into production faster. As a fully managed and hosted service, Red Hat OpenShift Data Science helps development teams get intelligent applications to market faster—where they can differentiate the company's applications and deliver competitive value.
Red Hat OpenShift Service Registry
Red Hat OpenShift Service Registry lets development teams publish, discover, and communicate topics using well-defined data schemas with Apache Kafka, and also works with Red Hat OpenShift API Management. OpenShift Service Registry supports event-driven and API-driven applications with support for a wide variety of message schema types.
Red Hat connectors
Coming soon to Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka, Kafka connectors are ready-to-use components that help developers import and export data to and from external systems directly into Kafka topics.
