Frequently asked questions


What is Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated?

Red Hat® OpenShift® Dedicated is a complete Red Hat OpenShift cluster provided as a cloud service, configured for high availability (HA), and dedicated to a single customer (single-tenant). Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is managed by Red Hat Operations, providing increased security and years of operational experience working with Red Hat OpenShift in both development and production. Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated also comes with award-winning 24x7 Red Hat Premium Support.

What are the supported versions of Red Hat OpenShift available for Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated?

Refer to the OpenShift Dedicated Life Cycle policy document for details on supported versions.

How is Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated different than Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform?

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated uses the same code base as Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, but is hosted in the public cloud and managed by Red Hat. A Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform subscription entitles you to host and manage the software on your own infrastructure.

What does Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated include?

Each Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated cluster comes with a managed control plane (master and infrastructure nodes), application nodes, installation and management by our 24x7 Red Hat site reliability engineering (SRE) team, premium Red Hat support, and cluster services such as logging, metrics, monitoring, notifications portal, and cluster portal.

Does Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated run on dedicated hardware?

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated runs on shared hardware on AWS and Google Cloud. Each Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated cluster is single-tenant (dedicated to a single customer).

How is Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS different from Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated?

Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS is a fully managed implementation of OpenShift Container Platform deployed and operated on AWS, jointly managed and supported by both Red Hat and AWS. This option is purchased directly through the AWS console and offers pay-as-you-go, single-vendor invoicing. It's best for organizations that want close integration to AWS services, joint support, and a single bill.

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is a service hosted and fully-managed by Red Hat that offers clusters in a virtual private cloud on AWS or Google Cloud Platform. It is completely managed and supported by Red Hat, and includes a guaranteed SLA. It may be best for organizations that already have a Red Hat footprint and are interested in a fully managed service from Red Hat deployed on AWS.


Is Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated available for purchase in all countries?

Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated is available for purchase in all countries where Red Hat does business.

Can I try Red Hat OpenShift dedicated before I buy?

A trial of Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated running on a customer-owned AWS or GCP account may be requested through your Red Hat sales team.

Will I receive an invoice from AWS or Google?

There are two models available for OpenShift Dedicated. In the Standard pricing model, Red Hat manages payment and support with the cloud infrastructure vendor. The customer will only need to interact with Red Hat. In the Customer Cloud Subscription (CCS) model, a customer will pay the cloud infrastructure vendor directly for components and usage.


What types of customizations are available?

A customer can choose either a Single-AZ or Multi-AZ (stretch) deployment for each Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated cluster. In addition, customers can choose from standard, memory-optimized, or compute-optimized application nodes. Cluster availability region, cluster id, VPC peering/VPN configuration, and user authentication integration are also customizable.

What regions are available for my infrastructure?

All AWS regions are available except China and GovCloud. Multi-AZ clusters can only be deployed in AWS regions with 3+ availability zones. All Google Cloud regions are available.

Can I use my existing user authentication system?

Yes, our customer enablement team will work with you during the provisioning process to integrate your Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated instance with your existing authentication system.

What authentication mechanisms are supported?

OpenID Connect, Google OAuth, GitHub OAuth, GitLab OAuth, and LDAP.


Which services are performed by Red Hat Operations?

Red Hat Operations is responsible for provisioning, managing, and upgrading the Red Hat OpenShift platform as well as monitoring the core cluster infrastructure for availability. They are not responsible for managing the application lifecycle of applications that run on the platform.

How do I make configuration changes to my cluster?

An administrative user has the ability to add/remove users and projects, manage project quotas, view cluster usage statistics, and change the default project template. Other changes to the cluster, such as updating authentication integration or VPN settings, can be requested via the support portal.

Will updates to Red Hat OpenShift and application services that have been purchased be rolled out to Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated customers?

Updates to the platform will be managed by the operations team and customers will be notified in advance of any maintenance schedules for updates.

How will Red Hat Operations communicate events such as product updates and scheduled maintenance?

Red Hat will provide cluster and maintenance updates through a custom status portal. A customer can manage user access and notification types for their portal.
