Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated: Managed Kubernetes frees your teams to innovate

Building and managing a container and Kubernetes environment yourself can be difficult, as 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 a leading enterprise Kubernetes platform. Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is a managed application platform hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud Platform (GCP). With OpenShift Dedicated, innovators can focus on what matters most, stay competitive, and outpace rising customer expectations without worrying about managing the underlying infrastructure.

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated simplifies Kubernetes with expert management and support

OpenShift Dedicated is an enterprise Kubernetes application development platform professionally operated and supported by Red Hat, hosted on AWS or GCP, and dedicated to a single customer. It helps organizations deliver more value to their customers by creating innovative applications, not managing infrastructure and tools. OpenShift Dedicated manages and integrates a Red Hat Enterprise Linux® operating system, container runtime, networking, monitoring, container registry, authentication, and authorization solutions. OpenShift Dedicated reduces operational complexity and offers a streamlined developer experience, allowing organizations to confidently build and scale applications across cloud providers that add more value to the business while Red Hat manages the rest.
