- ROSA streamlines moving on-premises Red Hat OpenShift workloads to AWS and offers a tighter integration with other AWS services
- With ROSA, customers can quickly and easily create Kubernetes clusters using familiar Red Hat OpenShift application programming interfaces (APIs)
Amazon Web Services, Inc (AWS) and Red Hat have announced the general availability of Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS (ROSA), a new managed service available via the AWS Console that makes it easier for Red Hat OpenShift customers to build, scale, and manage containerized applications on AWS. It said that with ROSA, customers can enjoy more simplified Kubernetes cluster creation using the familiar Red Hat OpenShift console, features and tooling without the burden of manually scaling and managing the underlying infrastructure.
They said that ROSA streamlines moving on-premises Red Hat OpenShift workloads to AWS and offers a tighter integration with other AWS services. ROSA also enables customers to access Red Hat OpenShift with billing and support directly through AWS, delivering the simplicity of a single-vendor experience to customers running Red Hat OpenShift on AWS.
They added, “Containers have proven popular with AWS and Red Hat customers because they increase developer velocity and improve application portability. Currently, AWS offers the broadest range of containers technology in the cloud, including Amazon Elastic Containers Service (ECS) for customers that want the deepest integration with AWS services and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) for customers that prioritize running Kubernetes. AWS customers that value a fully serverless containers’ experience can also use AWS Fargate to run containers without having to manage the underlying servers or clusters.”
With ROSA, customers can quickly and easily create Kubernetes clusters using familiar Red Hat OpenShift application programming interfaces (APIs) and tooling and seamlessly access the full breadth and depth of AWS services. All from can be done within the AWS console.
Bob Wise, GM Kubernetes, AWS said, “Increasingly, customers are turning to containers to improve application velocity and portability, and they’re growing to rely on technologies like Red Hat OpenShift and AWS that make it easier to deploy containerized applications. ROSA gives these customers the ability to seamlessly run containers on AWS using familiar Red Hat OpenShift APIs and tooling, and integrates the full breadth and depth of AWS services to build, scale, and manage their workloads.”
Eliminates the need for complex, multi-year contracts
ROSA brings elasticity and pay-as-you-go pricing to Red Hat OpenShift via a new Red Hat subscription that eliminates the need for complex, multi-year contracts and allows customers to align their Red Hat OpenShift consumption in AWS with their business needs. Customers can now access a Red Hat OpenShift subscription with billing and support directly through AWS, delivering the simplicity of a single provider experience and freeing customers from the procurement and operational complexities of managing two separate provider relationships. ROSA maintains key compliance validations, including SOC-2, ISO-27001 and PCI.
Sathish Balakrishnan, vice president, Hosted Platforms, Red Hat said, “Red Hat OpenShift provides a common, open and enterprise-grade Kubernetes platform to span hybrid infrastructure, from a customer’s physical datacenter to their operations in AWS. ROSA provides a streamlined process for organisations that want to extend the power of Red Hat OpenShift in AWS without having to manage separate technology streams, enabling IT teams to focus on delivering value and not managing underlying infrastructure.”
