Open source solution provider Red Hat announced Monday that it will collaborate with Google to enable Red Hat customers to move eligible Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions to Google Compute Engine using Red Hat Cloud Access. 

Google joined the Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider program last November and a month later made available the Google Compute Engine Platform, which put the company in direct competition with Amazon Web Services and marked the Internet giant's step into the Infrastructure-as-a-Service space. RHEL is already available on AWS through its EC2 platform.

With today's announcement, Google becomes the second Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider to earn designation as a Red Hat Cloud Access-enabled partner. Launched in 2009, the Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider Program designates Red Hat partners as having met scrupulous validation standards.

Chris Rimer, global head of partner business for Google Cloud Platform, said in a statement: 

Today's enterprise users demand performance, scale, flexibility, and security in order to run their applications. Now with Cloud Access, customers have the flexibility of bringing their existing Red Hat Enterprise Linux subscriptions to Google's infrastructure. By working with Red Hat, we are able to offer customers a powerful and consistent open source experience with Google Cloud Platform and Compute Engine.
