Oracle’s partnership with Red Hat gives you options for running your enterprise workloads. As part of a multistage alliance, Oracle and Red Hat are jointly enabling and supporting a growing selection of Red Hat products on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure (OCI). The goal is to give customers choice and improve the experience when migrating applications to the cloud.
90 percent of the Fortune 500 rely on Red Hat or Oracle solutions. Many of these companies use Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) as their operating system’s foundation. OCI offers them high performing, mission-critical cloud services to power digital-forward operations.
Organizations can standardize their cloud operations with RHEL on OCI, giving them a common platform that extends from on premises to OCI’s distributed cloud.
Certified configurations of OCI flexible virtual machines can run RHEL. Customers can also migrate existing workloads already running on RHEL to RHEL on OCI.
For organizations that need dedicated performance, a low-latency interconnect, and access to GPUs, OCI bare metal instances provide isolation and control with dedicated physical servers. They support applications that require high core counts, large amounts of memory, and high bandwidth connectivity. Red Hat Enterprise Linux is now certified to run on the current generation of bare metal instances.
Customers have the option to move on-premises enterprise workloads running on high performance servers with RHEL to OCI on bare metal instances.
The strategic partnership between Oracle and Red Hat includes a joint support agreement with transparent collaboration. Customers can contact both Red Hat and Oracle support to help resolve potential issues.
Customers with current RHEL support contracts can migrate their licenses to OCI and continue to receive support from Red Hat.
Organizations have corporate standards with required software, configurations, and security policies. Customers leverage the Red Hat Enterprise Linux image builder to customize RHEL gold images to meet their needs.
Customers can now use the RHEL image builder (which is command line–based and locally hosted) to customize and deploy RHEL images to OCI. Red Hat Insights image builder support for OCI is planned, which will provide a hosted build and launch experience with no additional build environment required.
Scheduled for release in early 2024
Customers will be able to install and deploy Red Hat OpenShift on certified OCI Compute virtual machine and bare metal shapes. Red Hat OpenShift is an application platform that enables a consistent experience across cloud and on premises environments. Customers will be collaboratively supported by both Oracle and Red Hat.
Oracle will provide Container Storage Interface (CSI) and Container Storage Module (CSM) operators to enable Red Hat OpenShift to add OCI Compute and storage resources dynamically.
Oracle offers a Free Tier with no time limits on more than 20 services such as Autonomous Database, Arm Compute, and Storage, as well as US$300 in free credits to try additional cloud services. Get the details and sign up for your free account today.
Experience a wide range of OCI services through tutorials and hands-on labs. Whether you're a developer, admin, or analyst, we can help you see how OCI works. Many labs run on the Oracle Cloud Free Tier or an Oracle-provided free lab environment.
