Ivan Cardona, owner, Opticca
We’ve been been deploying middleware, SOA, and BPM platforms from the major providers for the past eight years. We’ve recently made a large investment In Red Hat’s JBoss solutions because our customers’ feedback led us to conclude open source is now a real option. Our customers experienced tremendous success deploying services and business processes leveraging these platforms. The challenge they face is the solutions are too expensive to scale further and/or many find the platform overhead is too heavy. Red Hat’s Jboss solutions directly address those two concerns. For this reason we are very bullish on Red Hat’s ability to gain a substantial portion of the middleware, BPM, container, and micro services market.

Having all the key Java specifications certified to work together allows developers to be more efficient by focusing their time on delivering business value versus fiddling with tech stacks. Whether it is deployed on-premise, in the cloud or via containers, EAP7’s deployment flexibility ensures DevOps teams will not have to navigate tricky hurdles to get their environments up and running quickly. Enterprise grade features with flexible support options make JBoss EAP7 an easy decision.
