The following is the third installment in a series of blogs about how deploying Red Hat OpenShift on Amazon Web Services cloud platform can transform your business. If you missed the second blog, find it here. In this blog, we’re going to dive into our OpenShift on AWS Kick Start solution offering.
Your digital transformation journey requires flexibility and efficiency while ensuring confidence in the security, governance, and support structures of your public cloud strategy. Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Red Hat partner to provide hybrid cloud options. Whether you are migrating legacy applications, modernizing applications via cloud-native development, or embracing container orchestration, AWS and Red Hat provide the platforms, services, and support required for trusted transformation.
Our OpenShift on AWS Kick Start lays the foundation for flexible cloud migration and app modernization by assessing your environment and presenting a forward-looking approach. Our AWS and Red Hat experts will guide you through a process to assess and create a custom roadmap for your open-source on AWS strategy.
The OpenShift on AWS Kick Start allows you to experience the value of containerizing existing application workloads and migrating them to the public cloud. This is achieved through the careful selection of an existing application in your current environment, and then migrating it to an OpenShift on AWS environment. This will give your team a first-hand view of the benefits of running applications in a containerized environment via OpenShift, while also leveraging the elasticity and available add-on services provided by AWS.
We will work with you to understand your current environmental design and constraints, as well as your company’s unique culture, ecosystem, and cloud vision.
