Red Hat on Azure: Resources and Updates

Ever since the partnership announcement between Red Hat and Microsoft came about, we’ve been creating and collating various resources for users. This page will be used as a repository for such resources and other relevant information.
By using Red Hat on Azure, you can get the best of both worlds. You can add the power and scale of Azure to your Red Hat applications, and rely on Azure—the flexible, reliable, and open cloud platform—to quickly deploy them. You can also make the most of your Red Hat investments with a hybrid deployment model that lets you choose where to run your applications: on premises or in the cloud.

“Microsoft Azure’s partnership with Red Hat was exciting news. We’ve got a good relationship with Red Hat and have been using its services for many years, and obviously we want to continue that relationship going forward.
With this in mind, the decision to choose Microsoft Azure as our cloud platform became even more obvious. We have moved our web servers to Microsoft Azure and we are able to deliver so much more to our patrons via the web.”
– Andrew Wroniak, Manager of the Centre’s Business Services, Adelaide Festival Centre

If you have an Azure subscription that is eligible for free monthly credits – please note that it can be used only for Azure services and not for any third party services like RedHat, Oracle, Linux VM’s. When you use a third party service, it will end up disabling your free subscription. The subscription disablement is to keep you aware that deploying a 3rd party service disabled your account, but you can reactivate it by removing the Spending Limit. By removing the Spending Limit, you authorize for any charges incurred on the 3rd party services deployed or any additional charges incurred on your Azure services more than the $200 free credits.
