Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Red Hat Service Interconnect, simplifying application connectivity and security across platforms, clusters and clouds. Based on the open source project, Skupper.io, Red Hat Service Interconnect empowers developers to more seamlessly create trusted connections between services, applications and workloads across environments without requiring complex network reconfigurations or elevated security privileges.
Red Hat Service Interconnect simplifies application connectivity across any infrastructure and application environment, empowering developers to focus on innovation that matters to their business.
According to industry analyst firm, IDC, “By 2025, 75% of organizations will favor technology partners that can provide a consistent application deployment experience across cloud, edge, and dedicated environments.”1 Application architectures are evolving to take advantage of the open hybrid cloud, increasing the need for agile, compliant connectivity at the application layer. Distributed workloads, such as AI/ML applications, can span across on-premises, edge and cloud environments, while line-of-business applications increasingly need to connect to services and data across multiple clouds and infrastructure environments. Developer productivity and innovation velocity are hindered by the coordination required between developers, network administrators and security administrators to implement complex network changes that are needed for trusted connectivity on a per-application basis.
Multi-cluster, multi-cloud, multi-platform
Red Hat Service Interconnect helps solve cross-platform and multi-cloud communication challenges by enabling developers to add trusted, resilient connectivity between applications running on any Kubernetes cluster, virtual machine or bare-metal host. These connections can stretch across any infrastructure environment, from on-premises datacenters to the edge and public cloud. As a result, developer teams can more quickly connect applications without needing elevated privileges or advanced networking skills, resulting in increased application development velocity while maintaining compliance with security requirements.
Customers seeking to modernize existing applications to cloud-native architectures, or migrate their applications across infrastructure platforms or between cloud providers can use Red Hat Service Interconnect as part of their hybrid and multi-cloud strategies. Red Hat Service Interconnect reduces application downtime by allowing application connections to be migrated transparently between source and destination platforms, enabling centralized compliance and risk management while creating operational efficiencies for application and network teams.
Sarwar Raza, vice president and general manager, Cloud Services, Red Hat
“As customers expand their investments across the hybrid cloud, they need solutions that are simple to use, accelerate developer satisfaction and velocity and reduce customer and operational disruption. Red Hat Service Interconnect simplifies application connectivity across any infrastructure and application environment, empowering developers to focus on innovation that matters to their business.”
