Red Hat is releasing its latest version of Red Hat Integration, introducing several enhancements including advanced streaming processing applications that are designed to take in more streams and more types of data so customers can gain better insights and ultimately make more effective decisions.
Red Hat’s change data capture and service registry components, based on the open source Debezium and Apicurio projects, address important challenges that customers face when building these applications.
For example, identifying changes in an application’s data, and automatically publishing those changes to the event-streaming backbone like Apache Kafka, and governing data movement to prevent runtime data errors.
Kubernetes Operators codify operational knowledge that is required for packaging, deploying and managing a Kubernetes-native application. Once codified, Operators can automate these tasks. Customers have been able to use Operators to deploy core Red Hat Integration products for some time, including Red Hat Fuse, Red Hat 3scale API Management and Red Hat AMQ.
Now, customers can install, upgrade and manage Red Hat Integration components using the new Red Hat Integration Operator for Red Hat OpenShift.
This serves to improve the user experience by providing direct access to all Operators across Red Hat’s integration portfolio, from core products to auxiliary components, according to the vendor.
In addition to streamlining the customer experience with automated installs for change data capture and the service registry, Red Hat tightened the connection between the two components so customers can automatically populate JSON and Apache Avro schema for discovery and enforcement. With this, publishers and consumers can be more disciplined about interpreting the data they follow.
Additionally, the update has expanded the list of target databases with a new connector for IBM Db2. Customers can set their applications to detect changes to Db2 databases—as well as MongoDB, MySQL, PostgreSQL, and Microsoft SQL Server—and capture them for streaming processing.
