You need to rapidly deliver new products and services to your customers and partners to stay competitive. But with limited resources and assets across hybrid cloud environments, you struggle to both meet new requirements and efficiently maintain existing systems.
Red Hat® JBoss® Enterprise Application Platform (EAP), a market-leading*, fully certified Java™ EE platform, gives you a single platform to quickly develop and deploy applications.

On-premise, virtual, or cloud?
It's your choice.
With Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, you decide when it's time to move your applications from on-premise to cloud environments, such as OpenShift by Red Hat.
Use traditional Red Hat JBoss EAP to gain business agility with your existing applications and reduce the costs of proprietary platforms.
The Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) instance of our Java EE application platform, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform for xPaaS, provides the same Java EE 6 support for your OpenShift cloud applications, with the enterprise performance, reliability, and security you rely on from our traditional application platform.
Don't start from scratch or compromise with limited web profiles when moving to the cloud. Get the best out of both development and operations and quickly build enterprise-grade Java applications in a streamlined PaaS environment.

JBoss EAP 6 was created with cloud in mind from the very beginning. In fact, it is the first Java EE server offered in Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) architectures (including OpenShift by Red Hat). JBoss EAP's modular architecture is based on a services-driven set of components that greatly simplifies how applications can be deployed in different environments.
JBoss EAP has been optimized for simplified deployment and high performance in any environment—multicore, virtual, or cloud. The platform occupies an extremely low memory footprint and offers blazing fast start-up times, efficient resource utilization, and port management. Enterprise features such as failover, caching, intelligent load balancing, and distributed deployment means JBoss EAP can handle even the most demanding enterprise deployments.
JBoss EAP allows developers to be more productive and responsive to line-of-business demands with support for Java EE and a wide range of Java virtual machine frameworks, such as Spring, Struts, and Google Web Toolkit (GWT). And with JBoss EAP for xPaaS, developers can take advantage of self-service application provisioning, simplified stack management, and application auto-scaling to innovate quickly and launch without worrying about getting the right environments up and running.
What good is a cloud-ready application server if it requires a costly licensing migration to reap its value? The Red Hat subscription model not only takes upfront licensing out of the equation, it also gives you more flexibility as your architecture changes.
Want to deploy in a public cloud like Amazon Web Services? No problem. Want to implement virtualization or run on a portion of your hardware architecture? We can do that. It's all part of the Red Hat subscription model.
