OpenShift Enterprise


The OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat PaaS Platform allows developers to quickly build, launch and host innovative applications in the cloud. Leveraging an elastic PaaS architecture and supporting multiple proggramming languages, OpenShift increases developer productivity and accelerates application delivery. With OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat on Cloud Access, you can easily deploy your own OpenShift PaaS to public clouds, allowing you to maintain control of the PaaS while leveraging the benefits of public cloud computing.

To be eligible to use OpenShift by Red Hat with Cloud Access, a customer must :

  • Have at least one unused, active 2-core Premium OpenShift subscription in a single Red Hat account. Customers should contact Red Hat sales to purchase additional eligible subscriptions or to upgrade current subscriptions to Premium support if this requirement is not met.
  • Move only unused subscriptions to the cloud. Any number of subscriptions may be moved, as long as the minimum subscription requirement is achieved.
  • Agree to Red Hat Cloud Access subscription terms and conditions of use.
  • Agree to OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat subscription terms.
  • Stacking of cores is permitted. For example, if the cloud instance has 4 cores, then 2 available 2-core subscriptions can be consumed.

NOTE: Customers with OpenShift Enterprise by Red Hat offerings supported by third parties or hardware OEM offerings are not eligible for use in the cloud.
