What is Red Hat OpenShift Primed?

Red Hat® OpenShift® Primed is a technical readiness designation that acknowledges the first steps of an ISV's technology working with OpenShift by providing the ISV a designated logo and awareness through OpenShift online properties, including Hub and Commons. To earn this designation, ISVs must demonstrate an initial commitment to our technology.

Using any variant of OpenShift, including upstream, ISVs submit to Red Hat the technical evidence of how their solutions work with OpenShift. This can include source code, how-to guides, and even video demonstrations to be reviewed by Red Hat for OpenShift Primed approval. Once approved, ISVs gain access to an OpenShift Primed logo and the ability to post a marketing profile on Hub along with potential inclusion in other awareness activities.

For ISVs that desire a deeper relationship with OpenShift and Red Hat, OpenShift Primed is just a first step of the journey to Red Hat corporate level certification and business programs where ISVs can gain access to support and greater go-to-market benefits.
