At the Red Hat Summit, in addition to announcing that its OpenShift Enterprise 3 private PaaS is now in wide release, Red Hat took the wraps off of a beta version of OpenShift Dedicated, a totally new public cloud service based on the OpenShift 3 platform.

There’s no announced target date for release, but Red Hat is currently accepting online applications to participate in the tech preview.

The Red Hat team said that Dedicated uses the same code base as OpenShift Enterprise 3. The main difference is that OpenShift Dedicated is hosted on the public cloud and managed by Red Hat. In comparison, OpenShift Enterprise 3 subscriptions entitles businesses to host and manage the software in the infrastructure of their choice.

This service builds on the OpenShift Online public PaaS platform, but adds the ability for businesses to  build, launch, and host applications in the public cloud by offering enterprises a dedicated instance of OpenShift that’s managed by the OpenShift operations team. As the Red Hat folks put it, OpenShift Dedicated “brings the power and flexibility of OpenShift 3 to the managed public cloud.” It’s hosted on AWS.
