AWS (opens in new tab) customers now have a new option when it comes to deploying containers using the cloud computing (opens in new tab) service as the company has announced that Red Hat Open Shift Service on AWS (ROSA) is now available.
ROSA provides customers with a fully managed OpenShift (opens in new tab) service with joint support from both AWS and Red Hat (opens in new tab). The service also has an AWS integrated experience for cluster creation, a consumption-based billing model and a single invoice for AWS deployments.
AWS built its new service in partnership with Red Hat to ensure that its customers have a fast and straightforward way to move either some or all of their existing deployments over to AWS.

For those who are already familiar with Red Hat OpenShift, they can accelerate their application development process using standard APIs and existing Red Hat OpenShift tools for their AWS deployments. At the same time though, they'll also be able to take advantage of AWS compute, database, analytics, machine learning (opens in new tab), networking, mobile and other services to improve agility and scalability.
Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS
Since 2008, Red Hat and AWS have worked together to make it easy for organizations to run Red Hat Enterprise Linux (opens in new tab) on AWS. Now though, customers will be able to acquire Red Hat OpenShift licensing through AWS and deploy managed OpenShift clusters from their accounts.
By leveraging the OpenShift Service Catalog and AWS Service Broker, developers can easily deploy applications that depend on other AWS services. The AWS Service Broker provides an intermediate layer that allows users to deploy services using native manifests and the OpenShift Console and it also supports a subset of AWS services such as Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS (opens in new tab)), Amazon EMR (opens in new tab), Amazon DynamoDB (opens in new tab), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3 (opens in new tab)), and Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS (opens in new tab)).
ROSA customers can choose from both an hourly, pay-as-you-go model or annual commitments and you can find out more on the service's pricing page (opens in new tab).
Red Hat Open Shift Service on AWS is now available in a number of AWS regions including Asia Pacific (Tokyo), Asia Pacific (Seoul), Asia Pacific (Mumbai), Asia Pacific (Singapore), Asia Pacific (Sydney), Canada (Central), Europe (Frankfurt), Europe (Stockholm), Europe (Ireland), Europe (London), Europe (Paris), South America (São Paulo), US East (N.
