app development partners
Gain efficiencies with certified partner solutions
Creating innovative digital experiences for customers, partners, and employees at the pace they demand requires shifting to a culture of organizational agility, with faster and more flexible app development and delivery models. Red Hat works closely with our ecosystem partners to test, certify, integrate, and optimize the technologies you need to quickly build, deploy, scale, and efficiently manage applications.
Why an app development ecosystem is important
User demand for new functions grows faster than your development processes can meet. You need a platform, methods, application services, and tools that can keep up without leaving behind the existing apps that your customers depend on. Adopting containers and a cloud-native approach to applications can help you.
With cloud-native applications, development languages or frameworks can be tailored to the specific business application need. To manage the resulting increase in complexity and application diversity, you need a container-based application platform that supports the right mix of frameworks, languages, and architectures to support cloud-native development.
Kubernetes is the leading container orchestration platform, but can be extremely time consuming to manage. While Kubernetes does a lot, users still need to integrate other components like networking, ingress and load balancing, storage, monitoring, logging, developer tools, and more.
Red Hat offers platforms that include functionality to let most organizations begin working with containerized applications as soon as their cluster is up and running. However, no one company can provide industry-leading solutions for every aspect of running in production. Red Hat relies on its partner ecosystem to provide creative solutions to fill these gaps.
Red Hat provides a portfolio of solutions that significantly simplify container adoption and help you achieve a modern, cloud-native approach to application development.
Red Hat OpenShift
Red Hat® OpenShift® is a leading enterprise-ready Kubernetes container platform that helps organizations build, deploy, run, manage, and secure innovative application experiences across hybrid clouds. Full-stack automated operations and a consistent experience across environments readies operations and development teams to work together more efficiently to move ideas from development to production.
Red Hat Application Services
Red Hat Application Services helps you create a unified environment for application development, delivery, integration, and automation. Whether your infrastructure is onsite or in the cloud (container-based, cloud-native, hybrid cloud, or multicloud), this unified environment gives you the ability to create, integrate, and automate flexible, portable, and cost-effective applications.
Red Hat Ansible® Automation Platform provides an enterprise framework for building and operating IT automation at scale, from hybrid cloud to the edge. The platform lets you automate your application deployments and make your installations, upgrades, and day-to-day management repeatable and reliable.
To help navigate the complexity of development for cloud-native and hybrid environments, Red Hat Consulting offers strategic advice as well as in-depth technical expertise to help you develop an app development strategy that works for your business. From Red Hat Open Innovation Labs to discovery sessions and project implementation plans, our consultants can help you with every step of your cloud-native journey.
Red Hat is building an open ecosystem and supporting choice so you can run your business using your preferred tools, along with underlying Red Hat technologies.
Dynatrace is an intelligent, fully automated monitoring and analytics platform for cloud-native applications and architectures. Using artificial intelligence (AI), Dynatrace automatically tracks and analyzes everything from the browser to the application code, including the network. Dynatrace provides the answers DevOps teams need to quickly identify performance issues, and works with automation tools like Ansible to fix them.
GitLab is an end-to-end source code management and CI solution for scaling modern applications. Deploying GitLab and Red Hat OpenShift supports your journey to DevOps and cloud-native application development with a powerful CI/CD platform. GitLab provides a runner operator that can be used as a reconcile loop. When the infrastructure state is out of sync, the runner updates configurations to match the definition in the repository.
JFrog Artifactory is an industry-leading universal artifact repository manager. For developers and DevOps engineers, it automates the orderly storage and management of binaries and other artifacts produced and used throughout the software development life cycle. Artifactory captures the necessary intelligence about binaries to allow full automation of the software delivery pipeline to produce reliable, deterministic builds.
Monitoring and logging
Application performance monitoring and logging technologies help teams understand the health, security, performance, and resource utilization of systems and applications to make product improvements.
Development tools, technologies, and environments help teams use parameters, specifications, and requirements to create code or services that can be tested.
Testing allows teams to make sure they are building applications that conform to business requirements with regard to functionality, security, reliability, maintainability, interoperability, and performance.
Continuous integration (CI) systems are build systems that watch source control repositories for changes, run applicable tests, and automatically apply the changes to the latest version of the application.
Continuous delivery and deployment
Continuous delivery (CD) and deployment tools and technologies reduce the risk of software releases and build an environment for experimentation. They facilitate continuous delivery with zero downtime.
Code or Git repositories are web applications that host and archive code, as well as provide version control systems application life cycle management.
Application infrastructures are software platforms for the delivery of enterprise applications. They consist of the computational and operational components necessary to deliver enterprise applications, including development and runtime enablers.
