The marketplace will be launching in all availability regions of the OpenShift Online public PaaS service in the coming weeks.
With the advent of the marketplace, Red Hat aims to reduce the search time and cost of finding the solution for customers seeking value-added OpenShift partner add-ons. Customers will be able to easily find the information, tools, and community they need to discover and procure the right solution. They will be able to securely access and manage leading OpenShift application technologies from a single location.
Customers and developers will be able to find third-party OpenShift solutions and add-on productivity offerings, including database, email delivery services, messaging queues, application performance monitoring and more, all managed from a central location. Several OpenShift partners have already signed on to add their solutions to the marketplace, including BlazeMeter, ClearDB, Iron.io, MongoLab, New Relic, Redis Labs, SendGrid, and Shippable.
“The OpenShift Marketplace is our next step towards our goal of providing customers the widest variety of choice when it comes to technologies that complement their OpenShift experience. As the OpenShift partner ecosystem continues to expand, we expect the Marketplace to provide developers and customers a more streamlined, secure experience to choose the best third-party solutions for their productivity and business enablement needs,” said Julio Tapia, director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat.
