Red Hat Enterprise Linux now globally available on Alibaba Cloud
Alibaba Cloud has announced that Red Hat Enterprise Linux is now available globally in the Alibaba Cloud Marketplace on a pay-as-you-go basis, bringing more choice and flexibility to thier global customers.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux provides a stable foundation for modernizing IT infrastructure, on which enterprises and developers can roll out new applications, virtualize environments and create a hybrid cloud to deploy Red Hat’s certified open source solutions. Users can also customize their versions with add-on functionality from Alibaba, including desktop options and developer tools.
Alibaba Cloud and Red Hat entered into a collaboration to leverage each other’s infrastructure and solutions in October 2017. Since then, Alibaba Cloud has completed the certification process to officially become a Red Hat Certified Cloud and Service Provider. Being certified means that Alibaba Cloud is recognized as a provider that can offer a safer, scalable, supported and consistent environment for enterprise cloud deployments, as well as Red Hat-tested and validated open source solutions.
Customers of Alibaba Cloud and Red Hat, along with independent software vendors (ISVs) and developers across the globe, can benefit from this collaboration in the following ways:
Gaining access to reliable and flexible Red Hat Enterprise Linux at a trusted destination;
Having greater confidence that their IT implementations on cloud begin with a solid foundation;
Using Red Hat Enterprise Linux on-demand, paying only for what they use, when they need it
Yeming Wang, General Manager of Alibaba Cloud Europe said: “Alibaba Cloud is excited to offer Red Hat Enterprise Linux on our marketplace globally, as this is a recognition of Alibaba Cloud’s capability to provide a more secure, scalable, and stable environment to modernize businesses. By working with Red Hat, we can provide our customers with a powerful and reliable platform capable of deploying cloud architectures to support the current and future business demands of digital transformation for enterprises.”

At the heart of our business is the desire and commitment to provide a greater choice of solutions in the cloud.
