Red Hat updates OpenShift Enterprise, adds private iPaaS
Fresh JBoss xPaaS tools designed to integrate SaaS, PaaS, on-premise applications
Open source solutions provider Red Hat today announced OpenShift Enterprise 2.2 and expanded its xPaaS offerings with a private integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) tool to provide cloud-based services for application integration and messaging.
The additional services are JBoss Fuse for xPaaS and JBoss A-MQ for xPaaS. They are designed to offer "unified, enterprise-grade integration to, from, and within the cloud", according to Red Hat. OpenShift Enterprise 2.2, Red Hat also adds integration with Red Hat CloudForms.
"Hybrid IT infrastructures are the new norm for modern enterprises, but integrating applications and workloads across these environments can be complex and challenging," Red hat said in a statement. "Cloud-based integration and messaging tools such as JBoss Fuse for xPaaS and JBoss A-MQ for xPaaS allow for faster integration by removing the traditional infrastructure setup process that can increase application time to market."
JBoss Fuse for xPaaS and JBoss A-MQ for xPaaS are based on Red Hat's traditional on-premise integration and messaging tools, Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ. The latest versions of both products, announced at Red Hat Summit 2014, introduced features such as support for AMQP 1.0, a sizeable library of connectors, enhanced high availability, and the ability to manage processes.
"We believe JBoss xPaaS will be a game changer for how enterprise development will be done in the future," said Craig Muzilla, senior vice president, Application Platforms Business, Red Hat. "Red Hat is unique in its ability to combine JBoss and OpenShift to offer enterprises a unified experience for building, integrating, and running applications in an open hybrid cloud."
