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

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 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.
