Last week, we announced a strategic hybrid cloud partnership with Microsoft. Among other things, we announced our plans to offer Red Hat products on Azure, first with Red Hat Cloud Access and in the following months, with products offered in a pay-as-you-go model on Azure. This is something we heard strong interest in from our customers who wanted Red Hat products supported on Azure.
Today, we're excited to announce that Red Hat Cloud Access is now available for Microsoft Azure.
Now that it's here, with Red Hat Cloud Access, customers can more easily move eligible, unused Red Hat subscriptions from their datacenter to Azure. We offer Cloud Access for Red Hat Enterprise Linux; Red Hat JBoss Middleware; Red Hat Gluster Storage; and OpenShift Enterprise.
Red Hat Cloud Access enables customers to maintain their existing support relationship with Red Hat while taking advantage of the benefits of Azure. The benefits of a customer's Red Hat subscription move with them to Azure, too.
In the coming months, we plan to deliver on our collaboration with Microsoft. We'll update you when Red Hat products are available in a pay-as-you-go model on Azure.
