At Red Hat, new hardware is exciting! It enables us to present compelling, new choices to our customers. In 2018, we introduced Red Hat Enterprise Linux for ARM on Amazon EC2 A1 instances. This was special because it allowed us to unlock the benefits of cost-efficient ARM processors in hybrid cloud-based workloads.
The next step in that vision came when the AWS EC2 6th generation Graviton instances were announced with support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. We are now excited to continue down this path, by taking our multiple architecture approach even further with AWS.
To this end, we are making available a developer preview offering of OpenShift on ARM. For the first time, you’ll be able to try out your Kubernetes workflows with the same great experience you’ve come to expect from Red Hat OpenShift in AWS, backed by the latest cost-effective ARM instances. You can experience how easy it is to get started by checking out the instructions below.
Within minutes, you will be able to stand up your very own OpenShift on ARM cluster! With your help, we can help shape the future OpenShift on ARM to ensure the best possible end-user experience.
