Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced the availability of Red Hat Fuse 7, the next major release of its distributed, cloud-native integration solution, and introduced a new fully hosted low-code integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) offering, Fuse Online. With Fuse 7, Red Hat is expanding its innovative integration capabilities natively to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, the industry's most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. Fuse gives customers a unified solution for creating, extending and deploying containerized integration services across hybrid cloud environments.
Red Hat simplifies what could otherwise be a cumbersome task—integrating disparate applications, services, devices and APIs across the extended enterprise—and enables its customers to achieve agile integration to their advantage instead.
The ability to quickly and efficiently integrate custom and packaged applications across the hybrid cloud can be a competitive differentiator for organizations today. Now with an iPaaS offering, Fuse enables diverse users such as integration experts, application developers, and non-technical citizen integrators to independently participate in the integration process using a single platform, while maintaining compliance with corporate governance and processes.
The latest release introduces a browser-based graphical interface with low-code drag-and-drop capabilities that enable business users and developers alike to more rapidly integrate applications and services using more than 200 predefined connectors and components. These components are based on Apache Camel and include more than 50 new connectors for big data, cloud services, and SaaS endpoints, which organizations can adapt and scale for legacy systems, APIs, IoT devices, and cloud-native applications. Customers can also extend services and integrations for use by third-party providers and partners.
By taking advantage of capabilities in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Fuse offers greater productivity and manageability in private, public or hybrid clouds. This native OpenShift-based experience provides portability for services and integrations across runtime environments and enables diverse users to work more collaboratively.
Fuse can be deployed alongside Red Hat 3scale API Management, Red Hat’s award-winning API management offering, to add capabilities for security, monetization, rate limiting, and community features around services composed from Fuse or elsewhere. Combined with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, Fuse and 3scale API Management form the foundation of Red Hat’s agile integration architecture. 3scale API Management 2.2, released May 2018, introduced new tools for graphical configuration of policies, policy extensibility and shareability, and expanded TLS support—all to make it easier for business users to implement their organizations API program.
Leading organizations from around the world, such as Dirección Nacional de Migraciones and Lufthansa Technik have deployed Red Hat’s integration technologies, such as Fuse and 3scale API Management, to more quickly, easily and reliably integrate systems across their hybrid cloud environments.
Red Hat Fuse 7 is available for download by members of the Red Hat Developer community. Customers can get the latest updates from the Red Hat Customer Portal. Sign up today to get started with Fuse Online.

Mike Piech, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat
"From the very beginning, Red Hat Fuse has been about simplifying integration across the extended enterprise and helping organizations compete and differentiate themselves. With Fuse 7, which includes Fuse Online, we are continuing to enhance and evolve the platform to meet the changing needs of today's businesses, building off of our strength in hybrid cloud and better serving both the technical and non-technical professionals involved in integration today."
Osmar Alza, coordinator of migration control, Dirección Nacional de Migraciones de la República Argentina
"Data integration is critical to the National Migration Department's mission of effective threat prediction, and Red Hat Fuse plays a crucial role in this process. The Red Hat Fuse platform provides unified access to a complete view of a person for smarter, more efficient analysis, and supports flexible integration with internal and third-party data sources and APIs. We look forward to deploying Red Hat Fuse 7 and taking advantage of the new cloud-native integration and iPaaS capabilities, and we expect these capabilities will help us expand on our existing investments in Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and help us more effectively support our mission and priorities."
Saurabh Sharma, principal analyst and consultant, Ovum
"Red Hat simplifies what could otherwise be a cumbersome task—integrating disparate applications, services, devices and APIs across the extended enterprise—and enables its customers to achieve agile integration to their advantage instead. Red Hat’s new iPaaS solution fosters developer productivity and supports a wider range of user personas to ease the complexity of hybrid integration."
