Build cloud-native applications with Red Hat OpenShift and AWS


Highly available, cloud-based applications are at the core of modern businesses, but they must be configured properly to be effective. Cloud environments must be connected and optimized to increase scalability and elasticity. Consistent platforms and processes are needed to manage applications across on-premise and cloud environments. Red Hat® OpenShift® Container Platform and Amazon Web Services (AWS) form an innovative solution for quickly creating, deploying, and managing modern, cloud-based applications.


Combining Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and the AWS Cloud platform gives you a flexible, high-performance application environment that supports modern, digital operations. Built on open source innovation and industry standards, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is a comprehensive platform for building and running container-based applications with enterprise-grade Kubernetes. Develop, deploy, and manage traditional and container-based applications seamlessly across physical and AWS Cloud environments — without needing to recode or refactor applications. Speed iteration cycles and innovation with self-service capabilities and automation.

AWS is a high-performance, scalable, and comprehensive cloud platform that provides the availability, elasticity, and agility needed to run modern and existing applications. Adapt quickly to changing demand with automatic resource provisioning and retirement. Protect your applications and environment with included security features — and more than 50 compliance certifications and accreditations.

Together, Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and AWS provide a Kubernetes platform that supports existing and cloud-ready applications with streamlined access to AWS services. The benefits include:

  • Seamless service provisioning. AWS Service Broker integration allows AWS services to be provisioned and exposed directly through Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform.
  • Cross-infrastructure consistency. Applications and workloads behave the same across development, test, and production environments.
  • Unified experience in hybrid clouds. Agile development and DevOps methodologies work across on-premise and cloud environments.
  • Flexible application deployment. Existing applications can be deployed on cloud infrastructure to increase agility, scalability, and elasticity.
  • Rapid development capabilities. Automation and self-service capabilities let developers focus on building differentiated products instead of managing commodity application components.


Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and AWS make it easier to deliver on-demand services and resources to users. Build your environment on a security-focused foundation and add functionality with Red Hat’s open, integrated software stack. Simplify application life cycles with containerized environments that provide consistent deployment and automated policy enforcement — both onpremise and in AWS. Ensure developers always have what they need with self-service provisioning of resources and AWS services directly from the Red Hat OpenShift interface.


Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and AWS remove barriers to development, allowing you to build high-quality applications faster. Focus on adding value to your applications by using self-service provisioning, automatic security enforcement, and consistent deployment. Accelerate change iterations with automated development pipelines, templates, and performance monitoring capabilities. Use your choice of languages, tools, services, and workflows to build applications without limiting deployment options.


Modern applications and hybrid cloud technologies are essential for digital business. Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and AWS deliver an innovative application foundation that helps you optimize processes, provide on-demand services and resources, and speed development of highquality applications so you can become more agile and successful.
