Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today introduced the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform, which incorporates technology from the October 2014 acquisition of FeedHenry with products from Red Hat's JBoss Middleware and OpenShift PaaS portfolio, and adds new mobile services. The platform offers enterprises a full technology stack to enable mobile-centric workloads to integrate with existing IT infrastructures, reducing the complexity and increasing agility across mobile development and deployment cycles.
Red Hat is one of the only companies that can deliver and support the components needed to run the highly scalable workloads required by today's digital business. The Red Hat Mobile Application Platform delivers vital mobile capabilities and secure, manageable integration with enterprise systems from a single, trusted, and award winning provider of enterprise middleware, cloud, and mobile solutions.
The Red Hat Mobile Application Platform helps simplify and accelerate the development, integration, deployment, and management of mobile solutions by allowing collaboration across development teams, such as front-end application developers, back-end IT integration, and DevOps teams. Red Hat also announced the availability of a developer offering in its public cloud application development and hosting environment, OpenShift Online. Full support for the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform in production environments via OpenShift Enterprise is planned for the coming year.
The Red Hat Mobile Application Platform provides mobile capabilities that include security, reusable connections to back-end systems, and collaborative/agile app development. In extending highly complex and sophisticated applications to mobile devices, Red Hat believes that the defining factors of the next generation of PaaS capabilities will be a rich set of middleware services. In bringing the Mobile Application Platform to OpenShift, Red Hat aims to position itself for this and further advance the Red Hat xPaaS services vision.
Staying true to its commitment to the spirit of open source, Red Hat also announced plans to help establish an open source upstream project that will carry the FeedHenry name and focus on the development of cutting-edge open source mobile technologies, which will include FeedHenry mobile application platform technology, open sourced by Red Hat. The community is expected to launch in the coming year.
