Red Hat Expands JBoss Enterprise Application Platform Subscription with Greater Flexibility to Move into the Cloud

JEE App. Go To The Cloud

 

 

 

 

 

 

Enterprises are under pressure to deliver new applications fast; however, many factors, including rigid proprietary stacks, inflexible licensing agreements, and cultural silos in IT can prevent enterprises from achieving the agility they need to stay competitive. Enterprises are increasingly implementing DevOps methodologies, and technologies that complement them, to break down siloed communications between development and operations teams and accelerate application development and delivery. As DevOps adoption increases, so does the demand for technologies that complement DevOps methodologies and enable high productivity of developers and operations teams working closely together.

“Although DevOps emphasizes people (and culture) over tools and processes, implementation utilizes technology. As a result, Gartner, Inc. expects strong growth opportunities for DevOps toolsets, with the total for DevOps tools reaching $2.3 billion in 2015, up 21.1 percent from $1.9 billion in 2014. By 2016, DevOps will evolve from a niche strategy employed by large cloud providers to a mainstream strategy employed by 25 percent of Global 2000 organizations.”1

Red Hat is committed to helping enterprises get more out of their technology by allowing for greater freedom of choice. JBoss EAP supports a broad range of third-party frameworks, operating systems, databases, security, and identity systems to make integration into existing infrastructure easier. In addition, new subscription flexibility expands support for customers deploying JBoss EAP across multiple environments based on their individual needs and business requirements, including on-premise, in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, or in hybrid cloud scenarios.

Additional enhancements introduced in JBoss EAP 6.4 include:

  • Support for Java 8 applications, as well as for the Java API WebSockets implementation protocol, JSR 356, enabling developers to build real-time, rich client and mobile applications with reduced overhead and complexity.
  • Expanded JBoss EAP console and Red Hat Customer Portal integration, giving users direct access to the Red Hat Customer Portal, including the ability to receive support, open and manage tickets, and access the knowledge base.
  • New console functionality with an updated user interface enabling users to view log files more easily and manage security configuration for applications.
  • Kerberos authorization for greater application security.

As one of the only open source application platforms that commercially supports Java EE applications deployed in PaaS environments, JBoss EAP deployed on OpenShift provides developers with a fully certified Java EE 6 container and all the tools needed to build, run, and manage a wide range of Java applications. The combination of JBoss EAP and OpenShift Enterprise helps enterprises to optimize both development and operations by offering the ability to build enterprise-grade Java applications in a streamlined PaaS environment more quickly.
