We are pleased to offer supported enterprise-class Red Hat Enterprise Linux on demand for our customers,” said Terry Wise, director of Business Development for Amazon Web Services. “Our customers have been vocal about their need to provision supported Red Hat Enterprise Linux in the same way that they provision AWS EC2 and only pay for what they use. This announcement is the result of an extensive collaboration between Red Hat and AWS to satisfy real customer needs.”

Giving developers broad access to Red Hat Enterprise Linux using Amazon EC2 is an important step in our evolution in the cloud,” said Scott Crenshaw, vice president and general manager, Cloud Business at Red Hat. “This is about giving customers and developers choice on how they deploy Red Hat Enterprise Linux and work to build the industry’s next-generation applications.”
