Microsoft and Red Hat expanded their alliance to empower enterprise developers to run container-based applications across Microsoft Azure and on-premises. With this collaboration, the companies will introduce the first jointly managed OpenShift offering in the public cloud, combining Red Hat OpenShift and Azure, Microsoft’s public cloud.

Gartner predicts that, by 2020, more than 50% of global organizations will be running containerized applications in production, up from less than 20% today. Red Hat OpenShift on Azure will be jointly engineered and designed to reduce the complexity of container management for customers. As the companies’ preferred offering for hybrid container workflows for our joint customers, Red Hat and Microsoft will jointly manage the solution for customers, with support from both companies.

Customers will receive a managed service backed by operations and support services from both companies. Support extends across their containerized applications, operating systems, infrastructure and the orchestrator. Further, Red Hat’s and Microsoft’s sales organizations will work together to bring the companies’ extensive technology platforms to customers, equipping them to build more cloud-native applications and modernize existing applications. Customers will be able to move their applications between on-premises environments and Microsoft Azure more easily because they will be leveraging a consistent container platform in OpenShift across both footprints of the hybrid cloud.
