Getting Started with Datasets on Red Hat Marketplace

In September 2020, Red Hat and IBM announced the launch of Red Hat Marketplace, a one-stop-shop to find, try, buy, deploy, and manage enterprise tools, applications and services across an organization’s hybrid IT infrastructure, including on-premises and multicloud environments. Our aim is to provide resources to help enterprise developers using Red Hat OpenShift who are being asked to rapidly develop strong, more secure and compliant apps in hybrid cloud environments. Today, I’m excited to share the latest addition to Red Hat Marketplace that will help developers use data to solve problems, innovate, and drive new application development: public datasets.

Together, we’ve curated an initial selection of datasets with input from our
enterprise clients and with a focus on topics at the heart of our end customers’
needs or current situations. These include high-demand datasets related to
COVID-19, the U.S. Census, employment figures, demographics, weather, city data,
and more. Our goal is to enable you to find and use raw data, as well as
Kubeflow Pipelines, and most importantly, to send your chosen dataset to the
application of your choice running on the Red Hat OpenShift cluster of your
choice. Let’s dive into some of the key questions about the datasets available
on Red Hat Marketplace.
Developers now have a single location where they can access enterprise
applications and public datasets to build their applications. This provides a
more streamlined experience, resulting in less searching and faster development
Our plan is to add more datasets throughout 2021 from existing and new sources
to ensure we have a robust dataset category in Red Hat Marketplace that stays
relevant to the types of apps developers are creating. We are also planning to
offer access to models and application programming interfaces (APIs).
We recommend reviewing the documentation on Red Hat Marketplace specifically created for datasets. While exploring the dataset category you can find a chat icon at the bottom right to request additional information. There is also a “Feedback” tab on the right side of the screen which you can use to suggest additional datasets for Red Hat Marketplace.
