JBoss in the Cloud

Last month at the 2011 Red Hat Summit and JBoss World, we introduced CloudForms and OpenShift. OpenShift Java EE applications are powered by Red Hat’s enterprise-class JBoss Enterprise Middleware services, which include transactions, security, persistence and messaging, providing developers an easy and familiar on-ramp to the cloud. JBoss solutions are architected to run on one of the widest selections of both Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) and Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offerings while also providing a more open choice of languages, frameworks and data services available in the market today. As a result, the developer community is increasingly relying on JBoss Enterprise Middleware as they transition to the cloud.

The combination of JBoss Enterprise Middleware with OpenShift is a potent one. For the first time, PaaS defines a standardized software environment and a standardized deployment methodology. This combination is poised to reduce the friction between those who develop applications and those who manage them – the DevOps model meets cloud. OpenShift standardizes such things as clustering, scaling and caching and allows these core enterprise tasks to be abstracted from the core application. JBoss Enterprise Middleware provides a full complement of both legacy and current development platforms, but most importantly, a path to achieving the standardized development platform of Java EE 6. The best part? You can get started now with a free download at openshift.redhat.com!

With a broad range of support for Java EE, Spring, Struts, Seam, Google Web Toolkit, Groovy, POJO plus other languages and frameworks like PHP and Ruby on Rails, Red Hat offers the most flexible application platform for any PaaS offering, providing choice that is absent elsewhere in the industry. JBoss leverages the underlying capabilities of CloudForms, OpenShift and other clouds to provide robust, managed and elastic runtime environments, allowing applications to be deployed to a combination of public, private or hybrid clouds. This flexibility allows developers to begin their development and testing on a public PaaS offering from OpenShift and then deploy the finished application to the most appropriate cloud provider. The choice is yours to make, with no cloud provider lock-in!
