Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT) has announced 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 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.
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. Pricing and technical details are available via the OpenShift website.
