Red Hat Insights


Applications on the Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console are Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) products, providing customers with prescriptive analytics and applications to manage Red Hat environments. Because the applications are hosted and managed by Red Hat, there is no infrastructure that a customer needs to deploy, other than the installation of a client. All data shown via a user interface are hosted by Red Hat and a user will always be using the latest software version that is made available.

Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Preview Environment Access

Any user interacting with the applications hosted on Red Hat Hybrid Cloud Console including Red Hat Insights has the optional opportunity to test out in development branches of our SaaS products via the “Preview Environment”. This environment will allow customers to interact with new functionality actively being developed, iterations on existing functionality, or participate in public previews for upcoming applications. Since this is an active development environment, this should be treated as “Preview” pre-release software which may impact the availability, stability, data, or performance of its use and bugs may be encountered.

Red Hat Support for use in this environment is limited to Feedback Only as the purpose of this environment is to make it available for testing only and to solicit feedback from our users. Any cases opened will be treated as Severity 4 and limited to RFEs or general bug awareness; if you are interested in receiving full support, the preview environment should not be used.

You may access this optional preview environment at any time by visiting or if you wish to switch back to the fully supported environment you may do so by visiting
