Red Hat announces business model and pricing for supported OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) via tiered offerings
RALEIGH, NC, and BOSTON, June 26 — RED HAT SUMMIT AND JBOSS WORLD 2012 — Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the business model and pricing plans for its OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering to provide support to companies in application development and deployment. Available as a free service since May 2011, OpenShift PaaS delivers to developers a cloud application platform with a choice of programming languages, frameworks and application lifecycle tools to build their applications.
The OpenShift platform has made its mark on the PaaS industry over the past year, becoming the first PaaS to support Java EE 6 and to offer comprehensive lifecycle support for Java in the cloud. The code that powers Red Hat's OpenShift platform was made available to the open source community through the OpenShift Origin project in April 2012. The following month, Red Hat announced plans to extend OpenShift PaaS to allow enterprises to use both leading-edge DevOps operational models, as well as traditional application management methodologies.
Building on this, Red Hat today announced plans for its supported, OpenShift PaaS hosted offering.
OpenShift PaaS will initially be offered with two tiers. OpenShift PaaS is available now in Developer Preview. FreeShift and MegaShift are expected to be available later this year.
The new OpenShift PaaS pricing structure is expected to be available later this year.
Brian Stevens, CTO and vice president, Worldwide Engineering, Red Hat
"Over the past year since we debuted OpenShift, we've seen the power of an open, flexible PaaS for developers. We've made major progress over this year with the addition of new programming languages, the release of the open source project OpenShift Origin and plans for our enterprise PaaS offering. Building on this strong momentum, introducing our model and plans for OpenShift with enterprise-grade support from Red Hat today is a huge step forward for Red Hat and developers who are looking to take an open hybrid approach to the cloud."
Martin Schneider, research manager, 451 Research
"Platform-as-a-service is becoming an increasingly efficient and powerful tool for building both new applications; but also for modernizing legacy and traditional ISV applications in the age of mobile, social and the cloud. The beauty of open, flexible platforms like OpenShift is that they provide developers with the required toolkits to create cloud applications, or enhance existing environments without exorbitant 'per-user' costs or fear of platform or vendor lock-in."
