Red Hat brings OpenShift Online Platform-as-a-Service to 14 new countries and expands gear size offerings for developers

11 Nov 2013 Las Vegas - Red Hat Inc., a global provider of open source solutions, has taken the next step in the continued expansion of its award-winning commercial public Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, OpenShift Online. In the last year, OpenShift Online has experienced significant momentum, growing its user base by 259 percent and its application count by 322 percent year-over-year. Red Hat is now expanding OpenShift Online's global availability, and introducing new pricing and memory options.

OpenShift Online enables developers to quickly build, launch and host innovative applications in the public Cloud. The elastic, multi-language, PaaS architecture of OpenShift Online automates the provisioning, management and scaling of applications so developers can focus on writing the code for these applications for their business, startup, or next big idea.

As a polyglot PaaS, OpenShift's support for multiple languages, including Java, Ruby, PHP, Python, Node.js, and Perl, allows for a low barrier to entry so developers can start their project with ease and start coding faster. OpenShift Online is built from the OpenShift Origin open source project which also serves as the base for OpenShift Enterprise, Red Hat's commercial Private PaaS offering. It leverages Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the SELinux subsystem for a secure, multi-tenant architecture. Users and ISV partners can also take advantage of third-party extensions or build their own through OpenShift's extensible, pluggable cartridge framework.

Responding to customer demand for a supported, enterprise-class public PaaS offering, Red Hat introduced OpenShift Online's commercial offering - known as the Silver tier - in June 2013, giving users access to technical support and additional platform resources from the world's top Linux administrators and JBoss developers. Red Hat is expanding Silver tier availability to 14 new Eurozone countries, including Greece, Poland, Bulgaria, Romania, Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia, Croatia, Slovenia, Lithuania, Estonia, Latvia, Cyprus and Malta. With this expansion, Red Hat's world-class technical support and additional platform resources is available for developers and application providers in more than 30 countries.

Additionally, Red Hat is lowering OpenShift Online's gear/hour pricing by 50 percent and providing additional gear sizes to host larger applications. With this change, gear/hour prices now range from just $0.02 cents to $0.10. In addition to Small (512 MB) and Medium (1GB) gears, developers can now choose Large (2GB) gears, offering them a larger memory option to run their most demanding applications. Developers can now build and host applications more efficiently than ever, without sacrificing development time to tune application efficiency or scalability.

Red Hat also continues driving new features and functionality in OpenShift Online every month. Most recently, Red Hat added support for group membership and user management to enhance multi-developer collaboration. Other recent updates include enhanced support for environment variables and updates to multiple OpenShift cartridges including Python, Node.js and Postgresql.

New gear/hour pricing for OpenShift Online is effective immediately. Additional memory options and expanded global access to OpenShift Online will be available in December 2013.
