Red Hat Adds Microsoft .NET to Its OpenShift PaaS

Red Hat announced today that Microsoft .NET applications can now run on its open-source OpenShift platform-as-a-service (PaaS) technology. Since its inception in 2011, Red Hat’s OpenShift has enabled open-source programming languages including Python, PHP and Ruby to run, but until today .NET was not a real option for users.

The OpenShift support for .NET, however, is currently very limited and isn’t even directly integrated from Red Hat either. NET support in OpenShift is currently available only via a community download from software vendor Uhuru, Chris Morgan, technical director of the OpenShift Partner Ecosystem at Red Hat, told eWEEK.
