Red Hat has begun shipping 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, the vendor says expanding its integration capabilities natively to Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform, an enterprise Kubernetes platform. Fuse gives customers a unified solution for creating, extending and deploying containerized integration services across hybrid cloud environments.
“It’s about simplifying integration across the extended enterprise and helping organizations compete and differentiate themselves,” said Mike Piech, vice president and general manager of middleware for Red Hat.
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.
The latest release includes more than 200 predefined connectors and components, 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.
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 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.
