Amazon Red Hat OpenShift will offer customers the ability to launch Red Hat OpenShift clusters and provide the benefit of an AWS integrated experience for cluster creation and management, AWS Console listing, on-demand (hourly) billing model, single invoice for AWS deployments and the ability to contact AWS for support.

With Amazon Red Hat OpenShift, customers gain:
 The world’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform, already used by more than 2,000 customers globally. The choice of Kubernetes services for AWS customers further expands with the backing of two leaders in cloud computing and Kubernetes.

 Extensive, native integration with AWS services. AWS’ robust portfolio of cloud services, from compute, storage, networking, database, analytics and machine learning are directly accessible via Amazon Red Hat OpenShift, making it easier to build, operate and scale globally on-demand through a familiar management interface.

 A clear path to hybrid cloud deployments through Red Hat OpenShift. Amazon Red Hat OpenShift delivers the production-ready Kubernetes that many enterprises already use on-premises today, simplifying the ability to shift workloads to the AWS public cloud as business needs dictate.

Amazon Red Hat OpenShift is currently preparing for an early access program.
