Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the next step in the delivery of its Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) strategy with the general availability of OpenShift Enterprise, an enterprise-ready PaaS product from Red Hat that is designed to be installed on-premise within customer datacenters or private, public or hybrid clouds. The product enables customers to streamline and standardize developer workflows, facilitating increased IT service delivery velocity that can better support business demands. This news fulfills Red Hat’s plans for an on-premise PaaS offering, first announced in May 2012, and establishes the industry’s first comprehensive, open on-premise PaaS for enterprises.
OpenShift Enterprise provides enterprise users with access to a cloud-based application platform, enhancing an enterprise’s ability to build the applications it needs and have them run in a cloud architecture. It automates much of the provisioning and systems management of the application platform stack in a way that enables the IT operations team to more easily meet growing business demands for new application services. OpenShift Enterprise also provides an on-demand, elastic, scalable and fully configured application development, testing and hosting environment for application developers so that they can focus on coding these new application services. With its unique Security-Enhanced Linux (SELinux) approach, OpenShift Enterprise also offers reliable security and multi-tenancy with the ability to subdivide the Node instances.
OpenShift Enterprise is built on a trusted stack of open source-based Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and OpenShift Origin, the basis for Red Hat’s existing online OpenShift PaaS service that has been available in a free beta since May 2011. With the inclusion of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6, OpenShift Enterprise becomes the only Java EE 6-certified on-premise PaaS available to enterprises today. OpenShift Enterprise also benefits from the consistent innovation and contributions driven by the open source Origin project community focused on OpenShift. As a polyglot, or multi-language, PaaS, OpenShift Enterprise supports Java, Ruby, Python, PHP and Perl and it includes a cartridge-based architecture to enable customers to include their own middleware services.
OpenShift Enterprise is available today with support from Red Hat. The product is initially offered in North America, the United Kingdom and Continental Europe, with plans for global availability in the future. The OpenShift PaaS online service remains available in developer preview via https://openshift.redhat.com.
Ashesh Badani, general manager, Cloud Business Unit and OpenShift, Red Hat
“We’re excited to offer our enterprise customers the only comprehensive, open on-premise PaaS offering ready for enterprise deployment today with OpenShift Enterprise. This product offers our customers further freedom and choice in the cloud with the backing of Red Hat’s full stack and open source leadership. Developers are now able to choose among leading application development languages and tools for the job, and IT operations leaders can choose to deliver these application stacks to their enterprise on their choice of clouds in compliance with their security, governance and compliance requirements. This offering stands to revolutionize how enterprises use PaaS platforms.”
Stephen D. Hendrick, group vice president of application development and deployment research, IDC
“The worldwide public PaaS market grew over 40% in 20111 as organizations continued to leverage the benefits of platform services to develop, deploy and manage applications of all types. Advanced PaaS products support multiple development patterns, high availability, high performance, automated provisioning, dynamic scalability and shared services delivered as public, private or hybrid clouds. OpenShift Enterprise brings Red Hat's advanced PaaS capabilities into the private datacenter where they are most needed and enables hybrid cloud computing with enhanced security, flexibility and consistency.”

In this strange new world where more and more power is drawn from business technology, companies are effectively straddling two paths on the road to innovation and transformation into digital enterprises. The first path is the heritage trail – with “legacy” technology forming the background. Here, extant technologies are transformed by core IT teams to provide more API-driven approaches. Legacy systems can restrict companies that are transitioning into digital enterprises. To truly become a lea...

Digital transformation is too big and important for our future success to not understand the rules that apply to it. The first three rules for winning in this age of hyper-digital transformation are: Advantages in speed, analytics and operational tempos must be captured by implementing an optimized information logistics system (OILS) Real-time operational tempos (IT, people and business processes) must be achieved Businesses that can "analyze data and act and with speed" will dominate those t...

I'm a lonely sensor. I spend all day telling the world how I'm feeling, but none of the other sensors seem to care. I want to be connected. I want to build relationships with other sensors to be more useful for my human. I want my human to understand that when my friends next door are too hot for a while, I'll soon be flaming. And when all my friends go outside without me, I may be left behind. Don't just log my data; use the relationship graph. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Ryan Boyd, Engi...

If you’re responsible for an application that depends on the data or functionality of various IoT endpoints – either sensors or devices – your brand reputation depends on the security, reliability, and compliance of its many integrated parts. If your application fails to deliver the expected business results, your customers and partners won't care if that failure stems from the code you developed or from a component that you integrated. What can you do to ensure that the endpoints work as expect...

Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara.

Over the next few days I had many more meaningful conversations and was not only happy with the results but also learned a few new things. Here is everything I learned in those three days distilled into three short points.

Fifty billion connected devices and still no winning protocols standards. HTTP, WebSockets, MQTT, and CoAP seem to be leading in the IoT protocol race at the moment but many more protocols are getting introduced on a regular basis. Each protocol has its pros and cons depending on the nature of the communications. Does there really need to be only one protocol to rule them all? Of course not.

However, to create real business value, IT must think beyond the ‘what’ of digital transformation to the ‘how’ to harness emerging trends, innovation and disruption. Architecture is the key that underpins and ties all these efforts together. In the digital age, it’s important to invest in architecture, extend the enterprise footprint to the cl...
