Why Red Hat Middleware?

The Red Hat portfolio of middleware products gives developers, architects, and IT leaders the ability to create, integrate, and automate applications. The portfolio has been engineered together to help develop, implement and run business applications cost-effectively at scale. Red Hat Middleware can run on-site, in the cloud, or within a container platform, like Red Hat OpenShift.

The Red Hat Middleware portfolio consists of 3 product sets that help you create a connected and flexible application environment.
