World's leading provider of open source solutions Red Hat has announced the general availability of OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform.
The new offering brings Red Hat's award-winning container platform as a managed service offering to enterprise customers who want to build, launch, and manage applications on OpenShift Dedicated with Google Cloud Platform as their underlying cloud infrastructure.
With the availability of OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform, users can speed adoption of containers, Kubernetes, and cloud-native application patterns, benefiting from Red Hat's deep enterprise experience.
Users also benefit from Google's global, container-optimized infrastructure and can more easily augment their applications with Google's ecosystem of data analytics, machine learning, compute, network, and storage services.
Red Hat introduced OpenShift Dedicated in December 2015 to help customers who wanted to accelerate their adoption of containers and cloud-native application patterns, but wanted to shift the bulk of their focus to application development and deployment rather than administrative and operational management tasks.
With OpenShift dedicated, Red Hat acts as the service provider, managing OpenShift Dedicated and offering industry-leading support, helping to shorten time to value and free up valuable time and resources for customers.
OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform includes single-tenant isolation and a resource pool of 100GB SSD-based persistent storage, 48TB network iops, and nine nodes to deploy container-based applications, administrative and security controls, enabling customers to customize and more securely access their cloud environments using VPN and Google Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) functions, access to Red Hat JBoss Middleware container-optimized services, integration and business process capabilities from applications developed and deployed on OpenShift and others.
In addition to these capabilities, Red Hat also offers professional services to help customers migrate container workloads, adopt continuous delivery and DevOps processes, and build micro-services based apps with OpenShift Dedicated on Google Cloud Platform. And, via Red Hat Open Innovation Labs and Red Hat Consulting workshops, Red Hat can help customers build a blueprint for their digital transformation initiatives, alongside a specialized team of Red Hat technical consultants....
