Red Hat has expanded its JBoss Middleware stack by started supporting OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) cloud. This new development emerged following the release of Red Hat JBoss Data Virtualisation version 6.3.
The list of JBoss technologies with OpenShift support includes the Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, JBoss BPM Suite, JBoss BRMS JBoss Data Virtualisation, JBoss Fuse Integration Services, Single-Sign-On, JBoss Data Grid, JBoss Web Server and JBoss A-MQ. This list confirms that Red Hat has ultimately planned a containerised future of its middleware stack
Red Hat has most recently added an extensive OpenShift compatibility to its latest JBoss Developer Virtualization. Through this update, the virtual data integration platform can now move data from outside to inside the PaaS. Developers can also break their monolithic data sources for a microservices architecture. Further, OpenShift templates are provided to enable testing and bootstrapping on the single technology.
“With the announcement of the availability of JBoss Data Virtualization for OpenShift, we now have 100 percent of our Red Hat JBoss Middleware runtime portfolio containerised and available in Red Hat OpenShift,” Red Hat Principal Product Manager Diógenes Rettori stated in a blog post.
Virtualisation with OpenStack Neutron
In August, Red Hat upgraded its virtualsation solution and added OpenStack Neutron. That update brought a streamlined experience for shared services and reduced operational footfront for organisations by enabling deployments over traditional and cloud-based workloads.
The story has been updated to reflect major changes around Red Hat OpenShift.
