Red Hat Moves JBoss Deeper Into the Cloud

Red Hat, Inc., a provider of enterprise open source solutions, announced Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) 6.4 and expanded benefits for JBoss EAP subscribers deploying their Java applications in hybrid cloud environments.

“We see enterprise IT moving on a clear path toward implementing initiatives such as DevOps methodologies and two-track IT,” said Mike Piech, general manager of middleware for Red Hat. “The inherent flexibility of JBoss EAP allows it to act as a versatile foundation on which organizations can build both sides of their IT organization, prioritizing both agility and stability, and combat inefficiencies as they bring products to market by fostering greater collaboration between the development and operations teams.”

JBoss EAP supports a range of third-party frameworks, operating systems, databases, security, and identity systems to make integration into existing infrastructure easier. In addition, new subscription flexibility expands support for customers deploying JBoss EAP across multiple environments based on their individual needs and business requirements, including on-premises, in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, or in hybrid cloud scenarios.

Additional enhancements introduced in JBoss EAP include support for Java 8 applications, as well as for the Java API WebSockets implementation protocol, JSR 356, enabling developers to build real-time, client and mobile applications. The new release also incorporates an expanded JBoss EAP console and Red Hat Customer Portal integration, giving users direct access to the Red Hat Customer Portal, including the ability to receive support, open and manage tickets, and access the knowledge base.

JBoss EAP deployed on OpenShift provides developers with a certified Java EE 6 container and tools needed to build, run, and manage Java applications. The platform is available for download by members of the JBoss Developer community, while current customers can get the latest updates from the Red Hat Customer Portal.
