We hear about Microservices a lot nowadays. Its implementation requires us to deal with new challenges. A key question that comes with using microservices is how to handle interactions in an asynchronous way. The answer to that is messaging.
Among other things, messaging features the following:
- Loose coupling since it decouples client from services.
- Improved availability since the message broker buffers messages until the consumer is able to process them.
- Supports a variety of communication patterns including request/reply, notifications, request/async response, publish/subscribe, publish/async response and more.
One of the most famous products in messaging is JBoss A-MQ. Among the questions I receive from customers is whether it’s possible to run Red Hat JBoss A-MQ on Red Hat OpenShift. The answer is yes, Red Hat JBoss A-MQ (A-MQ) is available as a containerized image that is designed for use with OpenShift. It allows developers to quickly deploy an A-MQ message broker in a hybrid cloud environment.
The configuration of the broker can be performed two ways:
Before we proceed with how to deploy A-MQ on OpenShift, let’s take a look at different A-MQ architectures in high availability environment.

A few weeks ago, the newest version of Red Hat JBoss AMQ was released. AMQ 7 is the result of Red Hat’s efforts on creating a unified messaging platform for its middleware offerings. One of the most interesting features of this new version is the new backing strategy for failovering when configured in high availability. This feature allows clients connections to migrate from one server to another in the event of server failure so client applications can continue to operate.
AMQ 6.x already had an option to configure failover using a shared store, usually backed up by a shared filesystem or a JDBC connection to a database. However, that option involved the use of external infrastructure add-on in hardware and software, representing an increase in overall deployment costs.
In AMQ 7, support for network-based replication was added. When using replication, the live and the backup servers do not share the same data directories; all data synchronization is done over the network. Therefore, all (persistent) data received by the live server will be duplicated to the backup.

At the Red Hat Summit in Boston earlier this month, one IoT event stood out from the rest – a CodeStarter hackathon that brought together 80+ IoT enthusiasts to learn, tinker, and build an end-to-end IoT solution. The result was a complete IoT application that seamlessly integrates across IT and OT (Operations Technologies).

For businesses looking to build scalable Internet of Things (IoT) solutions using containers, here is a sample project built on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. This project implements an intelligent IoT gateway on the OpenShift Container platform. The IoT Gateway is critical for enterprise IoT as it brings intelligence, and enables key services, at the edge. In this project, the gateway application is deployed as a set of microservices inside containers on OpenShift.
