Red Hat delivers OpenShift Enterprise 3 platform

DUBAI, June 26, 2015

Red Hat, a leading provider of open source solutions, has launched its OpenShift Enterprise 3, the first enterprise-ready web-scale container application platform based on Docker format Linux containers, Kubernetes orchestration and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7, providing full support from the operating system to application runtimes.

OpenShift Enterprise 3, the next-generation of Red Hat's award-winning Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, will help organisations accelerate application development and delivery by enabling development and operations teams to be more agile, responsive and efficient, said a statement.
 
It will deliver a container-based application platform based on Docker and powered by Red Hat Enterprise Linux, providing a secure, efficient and portable way to develop, deploy and run application services.

It will also provide OpenShift users with access to the broadest ecosystem of packaged application components, combined with the security and trust delivered by Red Hat’s Container Certification Program.

To orchestrate enterprise applications that typically span multiple containers and hosts, OpenShift Enterprise 3 will also include Kubernetes, a powerful, web-scale, open source, container orchestration and management engine developed with Google.

As a leading contributor to both the Docker and Kubernetes open source projects, Red Hat is not just adopting these technologies but actively building them upstream in the community.
 
Above this core container infrastructure platform, OpenShift will add a wide selection of tools for developers to create and collaborate on application projects, leveraging OpenShift web, command line, or integrated development environment interfaces.

The developers can push their application code directly from GIT and automate the Docker image build process using OpenShift’s innovative source-to-image build capabilities.

The developers can also manage application deployments and rollbacks and integrate with their existing development and continuous integration tools.

OpenShift Enterprise 3 will also include enterprise middleware services from the Red Hat JBoss Middleware portfolio including application container services with Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, Red Hat JBoss Web Server (Tomcat) and messaging services with Red Hat JBoss A-MQ.
 
In addition to the launch of OpenShift Enterprise 3, Red Hat is announcing the beta of OpenShift Dedicated, a new public cloud service based on the OpenShift 3 platform. This service builds on OpenShift Online, Red Hat’s hugely popular public PaaS offering, hosting more than two and a half million applications since its launch in November 2011.

The new OpenShift Dedicated service enables businesses to quickly build, launch and host innovative applications in the public cloud by offering enterprises a dedicated instance of OpenShift in the public cloud managed completely by the OpenShift operations team.

Meanwhile, the OpenShift team will embark on a global roadshow to showcase the newest features in OpenShift 3 and host hands-on workshops to show users the basics of installing an OpenShift 3 environment, building containers from source code and deploying sample applications on OpenShift 3.

The roadshow will kick off in Raleigh, North Carolina and is slated to visit over twenty cities.

Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager, OpenShift, Red Hat, said: “This release of OpenShift Enterprise 3 employs open source containers and orchestration practices to change the developer experience and move the platform in the direction of what customers are asking for -- a flexible platform for a microservices architecture.

“Our continued upstream work in the Docker and Kubernetes communities enable us to deliver the most updated technology platform for developers and operators, enabling them to remain competitive through quicker innovation.” - TradeArabia News Service
