Open source solution developer Red Hat has unveiled the Red Hat Marketplace, a one-stop-shop to help organisations find, try, buy, deploy and manage enterprise applications across a hybrid IT infrastructure, including on-premise and multi-cloud environments.
Red Hat is also offering a personalized marketplace experience in the form of Red Hat Marketplace Select. This comes at an additional cost for enterprises that want additional control and governance with curated software for more efficiency and scale, pre-approved for that particular enterprise.
Red Hat Marketplace and Red Hat Marketplace Select, operated by IBM, consist of software from a range of independent software vendors (ISVs) built on Red Hat OpenShift. Red Hat OpenShift allows for the portability of mission-critical workloads across secured hybrid cloud environments with certified enterprise software that can help companies avoid vendor lock-in.
Red Hat claimed its Marketplace is an essential way of unlocking the value of cloud investments, designed to minimize the barriers facing global organisations as they accelerate innovation. The list of products available spans categories including AI/ML, database, monitoring, security, storage, Big Data and developer tools from ISVs such as Anchore, Cockroach Labs, CognitiveScale, Couchbase, Dynatrace, KubeMQ, MemSQL, MongoDB and StorageOS.
