The first day of the Grand Mass of Red Hat, which is being held at the Moscone Center Francisco year, has enabled the community to communicate about red hats news on integration in the range of software from the publisher. Particular emphasis was placed on innovation in the PaaS (Platform as a Service) Red Hat.
Red Hat, applications design and deploy a new way far cycles we traditionally know. Moreover it is not only developers who are striving to this task, but also users’ jobs. “They should therefore be to help as much as possible by simplifying their work but also by avoiding the usual pitfalls.
A new generation of platform
A new type of platform is needed to achieve this. It must meet several prerequisites to be able to respond to different environments such as cloud, mobility as well as the Internet of Things, the big thing of the moment. In the future, around various open source projects as Fabric8 and wildfly, the platform will be dynamic and adaptable, autonomous functions with automatic remediation.
JBoss at the heart of the platform
PaaS yesterday – xPaaS is his baptismal name – inherits many of the JBoss software family, especially Fuse, service integration. Based on service architecture (SOA return) and micro services, Red Hat PaaS strong demand integration services to link to the existing but also everything that is future in terms of applications and services. Fuse becomes an essential element of this set. Fuse comes in version 6.1 with a new preview for OpenShift for developers. In addition JBoss AMQP, the advanced version of its message-oriented middleware, gets the same level with a 6.1 that supports fully AMQP 1.0, a library of larger connectors, and for improved availability and performance capabilities of Directors integration process.
A homogeneous set
Specifically xPaaS uses Open Stack infrastructure with OpenShift PaaS as (platform development and database) and uses the services integration Fuse and BPM Suite which incorporates the functions of Drools, a rules engine, and an acquisition of Red Hat, polymeta.
OpenShift add sees a kind of add-ons shop the marketplace for partners and developers to share add-ons on OpenShift and xPaaS.
The assembly has a stack end to end, uniform, leaning on each level on Apache projects. If Red Hat can from a large installed base, however, it is yet to see how the platform will make its place in an environment of increasingly crowded between pure players like Engine Yard or environments such as Salesforce1.
