(The Hosting News) – Red Hat has announced a collaboration with Google that will enable Red Hat customers to have access to Google’s Compute Engine.
Google is now the second cloud provider to have support from Red Hat under its Cloud Access program, the first being Amazon Web Services, states a press release from Red Hat.
The company refers to the program as a “bring your own subscription” plan, enabling 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 with the confidence that the consistency and quality of on-premise Red Hat technologies are the same on a public cloud,” says Red Hat.
“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 award-winning Global Support Services organization – on Google Compute Engine, enabling customers to maintain a consistent level of service and support across all certified deployment infrastructures with consistent and predictable pricing.”
Google joined Red Hat’s Certified Cloud Provider program in November 2013, just a month before the tech giant announced general availability for Google Compute Engine.
