HomeWhy JBoss? › Open choice


Choice and flexibility mean not being locked into one environment, one standard, one approach. And letting you choose the best development frameworks, integration strategies, and deployment environments for your needs.

Tired of one size fits all? We are. Red Hat® believes that you should have the flexibility to choose the right infrastructure for your specific application needs. The JBoss® Open Choice strategy gives you the right products, technologies, and platforms to match your requirements. Provided under an affordable subscription that guarantees enterprise class and quality, the JBoss Enterprise Middleware portfolio carves out costs while maintaining maximum architectural flexibility.


Cloud Ready Architecture

Cloud-ready architectures help developers build applications that are relevant now and will remain relevant in the future.

Deploy to the cloud on your timetable, with minimal changes to your code. Don't get locked in with expensive proprietary application servers that require you to develop for a specific delivery model. Unlike IBM WebSphere application server static profile versus liberty dynamic profile and Oracle WebLogic on-premise versus oracle.cloud.com jva service, which provide you with different runtimes for each deployment model, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is designed and architected for deployment everywhere (on premise, public and private clouds). Based on a new modern architecture that uses the same runtime, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform allows multiple deployment options from the same code base.

Red Hat's OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) lets developers focus on users and code instead of servers and the stack, The combination of Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and Red Hat Open Shift offers customers an open source Java PaaS solution that enables hybrid cloud scenarios and helps to usher in the era of cloud-enabled application servers for HTML5, mobile and enterprise.

Together, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and OpenShift support openness and hybrid cloud computing. The hybrid cloud is one of the fastest-emerging and most important trends provides you with:

  • Flexibility - offering choice in deployment models, whether it's on-premise, virtualized or in a public or private cloud infrastructure.
  • Cloud portability without lock-in - empowering you to migrate deployments to the cloud location and type of your choosing, offering choice and avoiding lock-in from proprietary offerings.
  • Spanning & connecting clouds - many organizations are now running multiple cloud environments concurrently, dictating the need for flexible deployment and portability. Just as important is the need to connect and synchronize data across systems separated by differing cloud infrastructures, network boundaries and physical location.
