Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated

Last Updated:


Businesses differentiate themselves by delivering extraordinary experiences to their customers, and those experiences are created by applications that must evolve quickly to meet expectations. Once deployed, these applications must be portable, security-focused, scalable, and manageable. Organizations are turning to containers and Kubernetes to meet these needs. To quickly deliver new applications or to containerize and migrate existing ones to the cloud, they need a trusted platform to build upon. 

However, building and managing a container environment yourself can be difficult. Many IT organizations lack the skills and staff needed to maintain their environment internally. Others prefer to focus on application development and modernization rather than creating, updating, and administering their container infrastructure. 

Built by open source leaders, Red Hat® OpenShift® is the leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is a fully managed Kubernetes platform hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS). With Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, innovators can focus on what matters, stay competitive, and outpace rising customer expectations without worrying about managing the underlying infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is an enterprise Kubernetes platform professionally managed by Red Hat, hosted on AWS or Google Cloud, and dedicated to a single customer. It includes a Linux® operating system, container runtime, networking, monitoring, container registry, authentication, and authorization solutions. It connects to your datacenter, letting you implement a more secure, flexible, hybrid cloud IT strategy with minimal infrastructure and operating expenses.
