Red Hat, Inc., a provider of enterprise open source solutions, announced a collaboration with Google that will enable Red Hat customers to move eligible Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions to Google Compute Engine using Red Hat Cloud Access.
"By collaborating with Google to offer Red Hat Cloud Access for Google Compute Engine, we're bringing even more choice to the open hybrid cloud,” said Tim Yeaton, senior vice president, Infrastructure Group, Red Hat. “Whether on-premise or in the public cloud with Google Compute Engine, customers can rely on their Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions to meet their needs.”
Google, which joined the Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider program in December 2013, is the second Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider to earn designation as a Red Hat Cloud Access-enabled partner. Red Hat Cloud Access is a “bring-your-own-subscription” benefit available from select Red Hat Certified Cloud Providers that enables customers to move their Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions from on-premise to public clouds.
Through Red Hat Cloud Access, Red Hat customers can take advantage of the benefits of the Google Cloud Platform. Red Hat Cloud Access also enables customers to maintain a direct relationship with Red Hat – including the ability to receive full support from Red Hat's Global Support Services organization – on Google Compute Engine.
Red Hat introduced new subscription options for Red Hat Enterprise Linux last October, enabling customers to deploy the platform anywhere – in physical, virtual,
and cloud environments. With the subscription options for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, Red Hat said its customers can buy a number of subscriptions, deploy an initial mix on physical and on virtual machines, and then re-deploy in different patterns as requirements evolve.
