Understanding Red Hat AMQ Streams components for OpenShift and Kubernetes: Part 3

Understanding Red Hat AMQ Streams components for OpenShift and Kubernetes: Part 3

In the previous articles in this series, we first covered the basics of Red Hat AMQ Streams on OpenShift and then showed how to set up Kafka Connect, a Kafka Bridge, and Kafka Mirror Maker. Here are a few key points to keep in mind before we proceed:

  • AMQ Streams is based on Apache Kafka.
  • AMQ Streams for the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is based on the Strimzi project.
  • AMQ Streams on containers has multiple components, such as the Cluster Operator, Entity Operator, Mirror Maker, Kafka connect, and Kafka Bridge.

Now that we have everything set up (or so we think), let’s look at monitoring and alerting for our new environment.

Introduction to the Red Hat OpenShift deployment extension for Microsoft Azure DevOps

Introduction to the Red Hat OpenShift deployment extension for Microsoft Azure DevOps

We are extremely pleased to present the new version of the Red Hat OpenShift deployment extension (OpenShift VSTS) 1.4.0 for Microsoft Azure DevOps. This extension enables users to deploy their applications to any OpenShift cluster directly from their Microsoft Azure DevOps account. In this article, we will look at how to install and use this extension as part of a YAML-defined pipeline with both Microsoft-hosted and self-hosted agents.

Note: The OpenShift VSTS extension can be downloaded directly from the marketplace at this link.

This article offers a demonstration where we explain how easy it is to set up everything and start working with the extension. Look at the README file for further installation and usage information.

Understanding Red Hat AMQ Streams components for OpenShift and Kubernetes: Part 1

Understanding Red Hat AMQ Streams components for OpenShift and Kubernetes: Part 1

Red Hat AMQ Streams is an enterprise-grade Apache Kafka (event streaming) solution, which enables systems to exchange data at high throughput and low latency. AMQ Streams is available as part of the Red Hat AMQ offering in two different flavors: one on the Red Hat Enterprise Linux platform and another on the OpenShift Container Platform. In this three-part article series, we will cover AMQ Streams on the OpenShift Container Platform.

To get the most out of these articles, it will help to be familiar with messaging concepts, Red Hat OpenShift, and Kubernetes.

Set up Red Hat AMQ 7 custom certificates on OpenShift

Set up Red Hat AMQ 7 custom certificates on OpenShift

Secure communication over a computer network is one of the most important requirements for a system, and yet it can be difficult to set up correctly. This example shows how to set up Red Hat AMQ 7 end-to-end TLS encryption using a custom X.509 certificate on the Red Hat OpenShift platform.

Prerequisites

You need to have the following in place before you can proceed with this example:

  • An OpenShift cluster up and running.
  • A custom X.509 certificate in PEM format (along with its chain).
  • An active Red Hat Customer Portal account.

Cloud-native integration with Kubernetes and Camel K

Cloud-native integration with Kubernetes and Camel K

Our first DevNation Live regional event was held in Bengaluru, India in July. This free technology event focused on open source innovations, with sessions presented by elite Red Hat technologists.

In this session, Kamesh Sampath shows how to apply common Enterprise Integration Patterns (EIP) with Apache Camel, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift. You will see how the new Camel K framework helps in deploying Camel DSL code as “integrations” in Kubernetes/OpenShift.
