Red Hat Unveils New Managed Cloud Services
April 27, 2021

Red Hat announced the expansion of its open hybrid cloud technology portfolio with new managed cloud services.

Red Hat OpenShift API Management, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka and Red Hat OpenShift Data Science are designed to deliver a fully-managed and streamlined user experience as organizations build, deploy, manage and scale cloud-native applications across hybrid environments. These services are tightly integrated with Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated and help mitigate the operational complexities of highly-complex modern IT environments without sacrificing developer productivity, providing a common set of capabilities across the full breadth of the open hybrid cloud and on multiple clouds.

The new services include:

- Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka, designed to make it easier to create, discover and connect to real-time data streams regardless of where they exist.

- Red Hat OpenShift Data Science to offer organizations a way to more rapidly develop, train and test machine learning (ML) models and export in a container-ready format.

- Red Hat OpenShift API Management which accelerates time to value and reduces the operational cost of delivering API-first, microservices-based applications.

Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka

Based on the open source Apache Kafka project, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka enables development teams to more easily incorporate streaming data into their applications. When designing hybrid cloud applications, data streams provide the backbone for capturing, communicating and processing events for modern, distributed application architectures. Real-time data is a critical component of functional hybrid cloud applications, providing more immediate digital experiences to wherever a service is delivered. As a fully-managed and hosted Kafka service, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka enables developers to focus on building better applications more quickly, without having to worry about the underlying requirements of data collection and processing.

Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka is available as a developer preview, with general availability expected later this year.

Red Hat OpenShift Data Science

Red Hat OpenShift Data Science builds on the open source Open Data Hub project and provides for the faster development, training and testing of machine learning models without the associated infrastructure demands. Red Hat OpenShift Data Science implements common data science tools as the foundation of an AI-as-a-Service platform integrated with select partner cloud services, including ISV solutions from Red Hat Marketplace.

Red Hat OpenShift Data Science is available in beta as an add-on to OpenShift Dedicated and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, with general availability expected later this year..

Red Hat OpenShift API Management

Red Hat OpenShift API Management offers full application programming interface (API) lifecycle management to Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS. Combining managed operations with native OpenShift integration enables organizations to focus on innovation and development in building, managing and scaling API-first, microservices-based applications instead of infrastructure. Red Hat OpenShift API Management also enables customers to build their own API management program, with the capabilities to control access, monitor usage, share common APIs and evolve their overall application landscape through a single DevOps pipeline.

Red Hat OpenShift API Management is fully available today as an add-on to Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, and on Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS.

These new managed cloud services build on Red Hat’s existing portfolio of Red Hat OpenShift offerings, which provide self- and fully-managed Kubernetes across leading public clouds. This enables Red Hat customers and partners to build an open hybrid cloud strategy based on the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, regardless of on-premises infrastructure assets or operational staffing. Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, a fully managed application development platform by Red Hat and hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud, includes the management and integration of technology components from the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform, Red Hat Enterprise Linux, and services such as networking, monitoring and more to reduce operational complexity and enable developers to build, deploy and run cloud-native applications faster. By connecting OpenShift Dedicated to the datacenter, customers can implement a more secure and flexible hybrid cloud strategy with minimal infrastructure and operating expenses. Backed by a global site reliability engineering (SRE) team, OpenShift Dedicated provides an opinionated application development platform with the ability to integrate and manage services throughout the stack, allowing customers to focus on differentiation and innovation rather than managing their application platform. Learn more about OpenShift Dedicated and try it today.

In addition to OpenShift Dedicated, Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud, Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS and Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift are all available as jointly-managed and supported OpenShift services, accessed as native cloud console offerings from the respective cloud providers. These services are designed to reduce operational overhead and enable customers to quickly deliver applications that provide more value to the business while supporting regulatory compliance.
