Red Hat Extends JBoss Middleware to OpenShift
Excerpts from Red Hat announcement: Red Hat Doubles Down on Enterprise PaaS: Reveals Plans for First Full Complement of Enterprise Middleware Services within OpenShift
Red Hat recently announced JBoss xPaaS services for OpenShift which provides a rich set of enterprise application, integration and business process automation capabilities and services in an extensible open PaaS platform, and is uniquely positioned to enable accelerated development and deployment of next-generation enterprise applications and business processes in the cloud. Per the announcement, Gartner uses the term xPaaS to describe the whole spectrum of specialized middleware services that can be offered as PaaS. See Mark Little’s blog on xPaaS.
The initial phase of Red Hat’s PaaS strategy was marked by the introduction of OpenShift Enterprise, which combined the core enterprise technologies that power OpenShift, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux and Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, into an integrated open hybrid cloud application platform, followed by the commercial availability of OpenShift Online, Red Hat’s public PaaS offering.
This next phase puts Red Hat JBoss Middleware technologies in the cloud as services powered by OpenShift, including integration capabilities, business process management (BPM), and mobile push notifications. The mobile push notification service is available today in developer preview and will be followed by developer preview versions of integration PaaS (iPaaS) and BPM PaaS (bpmPaaS) technologies in the coming months. This iPaaS technology will expand on pre-cloud messaging-based integration to include cloud-based configuration, cloud-based brokers, and cloud-based services, and the bpmPaaS capabilities are slated to include process modeling, business activity monitoring (BAM), process simulation, and the ability to dynamically configure automation and data without changing code.
Development for xPaaS can be initiated today with Red Hat JBoss Middleware products, including Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss BRMS, which have been built with the cloud as a target development and deployment platform. As new xPaaS services are delivered, users will be able to easily move new applications, integrations and process components into the PaaS environment. Over time, Red Hat plans to add services and capabilities from the rest of its Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio along with other Red Hat technologies incorporated as xPaaS services.
