Google Integrating Cloud Platform With Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated
The goal is to enable Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated managed container application platform customers to build and host their apps on Google's Cloud Platform.Enterprises using Red Hat's OpenShift Dedicated managed container application platform technology will soon be able to build and host their applications on Google's Cloud Platform. The two companies last week announced a deepening of their existing relationship under which they will work together to integrate OpenShift Dedicated with Google's Cloud Platform services. The effort will involve tying Google's big data, storage and cloud analytics services with OpenShift Dedicated. The goal is to give Red Hat customers access to the full capabilities of Google's cloud services natively, Martin Buhr, product manager of Google Cloud Platform, wrote in a blog post announcing the expanded relationship between the two companies. Over the short-term, the integration will provide enterprises using OpenShift Dedicated with access to Google's Kubernetes container orchestration technology. Eventually, the integration will yield other benefits as well, Buhr said.
Among them are improved security and lifecycle services so developers and partners can build and implement microservices-based applications in more efficient ways. The integration of the two environments should also enable some of the dynamic scheduling capabilities of containers that enterprises are looking for to manage changing workloads, Buhr noted. In addition, integrating Google Cloud Platform with OpenShift Dedicated will enable hybrid deployments and better application portability across the two environments.
