Redis Labs, the leading provider of fully managed Redis and Memcached for cloud users, today announced the availability of its Redis Cloud service in Red Hat’s OpenShift Marketplace, a one-stop shop that lets customers of all sizes learn, try, and buy application development solutions for DevOps.

Redis Cloud is a fully managed service for developers that delivers their apps with infinite scalability, true high availability, and stable top performance. Developers have created more than 45,000 Redis Cloud instances that capture and enhance well-known open source NoSQL Redis use cases, such as job management, real time analytics, and social capabilities. Redis Cloud powers 1,800 paying customers from both high growth startups and Fortune 500 companies alike.

OpenShift is Red Hat's award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) that enables developers to quickly develop, host, and scale applications in both public cloud (OpenShift Online) and on-premise private cloud (OpenShift Enterprise) environments. OpenShift’s elastic, multi-language, PaaS architecture 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. OpenShift Online and OpenShift Enterprise are built from the OpenShift Origin open source project. It leverages Red Hat Enterprise Linux and the SELinux subsystem for a secure, multi-tenant architecture.

The OpenShift Marketplace reduces the search time and cost of finding the perfect solution for customers seeking value added OpenShift solutions. Customers can easily find the information, tools, and community they need to discover and buy the right solution.

Showcasing solutions, marketing material, and transactions can be achieved with a few easy steps. Integrating, managing, and marketing their offerings in one easy location to reach an ever increasing customer base will be a tremendous benefit for OpenShift partners anxious to grow their business.
