Learn how the OpenShift Startup Program has helped privately-held software startups
As developers, we were tired of wasting time learning to configure and manage servers. Moving to OpenShift made hosting RocketBolt as easy as doing a Git push. Everything 'just worked' the first time we pushed our codebase live.
Now we spend little time managing or maintaining IT operations, usually just minutes a week. OpenShift is very simple to use. It just works.
OpenShift has provided the perfect accelerator for our business in its Startup Program.
You will be notified within 2 weeks if you have been accepted into the Startup Program at which point you will be asked to confirm enrollment. Only accepted applicants will be notified, although we may contact you if we need additional information.
The Red Hat OpenShift Online Startup Program provides $750 in credits for 6 months. This can be applied toward the $50 platform fee for the OpenShift Online Pro plan, which includes 2GiB memory and 2GiB persistent storage, Red Hat professional support, custom domains, and prevents your applications from automatically idling.
Due to high demand, please allow up to 2 weeks for us to review your application. Only startups that have been accepted into the program will be notified.
The account credits are initially applied for 6 months, but extensions, discounts, and custom options can be negotiated based on your participation and need.
