Red Hat’s build of Quarkus, which is part of Red Hat Runtimes, offers tight integration with Red Hat OpenShift® and access to production-ready capabilities that make it an ideal platform for cloud-native applications.
Developers can choose the Java frameworks they want for their applications, which run in Java virtual machine (JVM) mode.
Quarkus was built with a container-first philosophy, meaning it’s optimized for lower memory usage and faster startup times.
Quarkus’ low memory consumption and fast startup time translate into more efficient resource utilization and better user experience. .
Quarkus supports popular Java standards and libraries as well as live coding and unified configurations for fast, iterative development.
Ideal for serverless
With its fast startup time, low memory consumption, and small application size, Quarkus is perfect for serverless applications.
Quarkus is built on the backbone of the proven and trusted enterprise Java ecosystem with an active user community with contributions from over 180 developers.
Quarkus is pre-integrated with OpenShift to provide an ideal application environment for scalable, fast, and lightweight applications.
Quarkus has 90+ extensions that configure, boot, and integrate a framework or technology into your Quarkus application so developers can focus on their own code.
Quarkus is ideal for reactive applications. It utilizes a non-blocking, reactive event loop for both imperative and reactive code so developers can choose the right option for their use case.
A unified application environment supports the rapid development and delivery of business solutions—keeping you ahead of your competition.
By using Red Hat OpenShift and a cloud-native development toolchain including Quarkus, developers can significantly increase their productivity. Red Hat provides pre-built, Kubernetes-native developer environments and tools that eliminate configuration and preparation time to enable developers to start developing quicker.
