Red Hat announces the OpenShift Dedicated container management service is now available on Google Cloud Platform (GCP)-- providing means for enterprises to build, launch and manage applications using Red Hat technology on the Google cloud.
A deal between the two companies sees Red Hat act as service provider, support customers managing OpenShift Dedicated on GCP. Meanwhile Google helps enterprises augment and build on OpenShift applications with a "broad and growing" cloud service portfolio. Customers get support for VPN and Google Virtual Private Cloud to access container applications on the cloud, as well as access to a container-optimised version of the JBoss Middleware.
"Customers consistently tell us that they are looking for open solutions that will enable them to use both public and private infrastructure-- they want choice. Red Hat has been an essential partner in making Kubernetes available to enterprises looking for the support and flexibility to manage a hybrid cloud," Google says. "We are deeply committed to working with partners like Red Hat to help our customers operate in a digital world.”
