  • Overview of the Red Hat Cloud Access Program

    • Red Hat Cloud Access is a program that allows Red Hat customers to run eligible Red Hat product subscriptions on Certified Public Cloud Providers.

    • Red Hat provides Gold Images for Red Hat Enterprise Linux, RHEL for SAP, Red Hat Atomic Host, Red Hat Gluster Storage, and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for AWS.

    • For Microsoft Azure, only 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux' images are available.

    • For Google Cloud Platform, only 'Red Hat Enterprise Linux' images are available.

    • For products that are not provided as a Gold Image on the Cloud Portal, start with a Red Hat Enterprise Linux image and install the desired Red Hat Product.

    • After processing the request, please allow up to 3 hours to 1 business day for the Gold Images to appear on the AWS portal.

    • The Gold Images for Azure may take up to 3 hours to 5 business hours once the request has been processed.

    • It might take 3-4 business hours for the Google Cloud account to be linked to the Red Hat Customer Portal.

      Note: Once you have successfully completed the form, you will see the Cloud Provider added to your Cloud Access Dashboard. You can view the subscriptions enabled for the Cloud Provider under the Enabled Products tab, and the Cloud Provider accounts you added under the Accounts tab.

And once the status is shown as 'Granted' from the Red Hat Portal, you can login to your respective Cloud portal and locate the RHEL BYOS Gold Images.
