AWS and Red Hat announce new managed service ROSA

Mumbai: AWS (Amazon Web Services) and Red Hat announced the general availability of Red Hat OpenShift on AWS (ROSA).

ROSA is a new managed service available via the AWS Console, making it easier for Red Hat OpenShift customers to build, scale and manage containerized applications on AWS.

It allows customers more simplified Kubernetes cluster creation using the familiar Red Hat OpenShift console, features and tooling without manually scaling and managing the underlying infrastructure.

The IBM owned company said that ROSA streamlines moving on-premises OpenShift workloads to AWS and offers tighter integration with other AWS services. It enables customers to access Red Hat OpenShift with billing and support directly through AWS.

For customers, the new managed service offers a simple single-vendor experience and there are no up-front investments required to use ROSA and customers pay only for the container clusters and nodes used.

Containers have proven popular with both companies’ customers because they increase developer velocity and improve application portability.

Currently, Amazon offers the broadest range of containers technology in the cloud, including Amazon Elastic Containers Service (ECS) for customers that want the deepest integration with AWS and Elastic Kubernetes Service (EKS) for customers that prioritize running Kubernetes.

Amazon web customers that value fully serverless containers’ experience can also use AWS Fargate to run containers without having to manage the underlying servers or clusters.

With ROSA, customers can quickly and easily create Kubernetes clusters using familiar Red Hat OpenShift application programming interfaces (APIs) and tooling and seamlessly access the full breadth and depth of AWS services — all from within the Amazon web console.

ROSA offers pay-as-you-go pricing via a new Red Hat subscription that eliminates the need for complex, multi-year contracts and allows customers to align their OpenShift consumption in Amazon with their business needs. Additionally, ROSA maintains key compliance validations, including SOC-2, ISO-27001 and PCI.

“Increasingly, customers are turning to containers to improve application velocity and portability, and they’re growing to rely on technologies like Red Hat OpenShift and AWS that make it easier to deploy containerized applications,” said Bob Wise, GM Kubernetes, AWS.

“ROSA gives these customers the ability to seamlessly run containers on AWS using familiar Red Hat OpenShift APIs and tooling, and integrates the full breadth and depth of AWS services to build, scale and manage their workloads,” added Wise.

“Red Hat OpenShift provides a common, open and enterprise-grade Kubernetes platform to span hybrid infrastructure, from a customer’s physical datacentre to their operations in AWS,” said Sathish Balakrishnan, VP – Hosted Platforms, Red Hat.

“ROSA provides a streamlined process for organisations that want to extend the power of Red Hat OpenShift in AWS without having to manage separate technology streams, enabling IT teams to focus on delivering value and not managing underlying infrastructure,” added Balakrishnan.

“The launch of ROSA as a fully managed service is the next step in the evolution of OpenShift. It means that Accenture can focus on delivering the benefits of modern applications for our clients, leveraging the cloud managed services provided by both companies,” said Andy Tay, Global Lead – Accenture AWS Business Group, Accenture.

“ROSA speeds deployments and frees up teams to more easily manage deployments directly from the AWS Console,” said Jiani Zhang, President, Alliance and Industrial Solutions Unit – Persistent Systems.
