Cloud9 IDE builds on-line development environment with Red Hat OpenShift

30 Jan 2013 Raleigh - Cloud9 IDE has built its on-line development environment with Red Hat's OpenShift Online hosted Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution. By integrating OpenShift Online into its original on-line development environment, Cloud9 IDE is able to deliver more flexibility, security and ease of use to developers.

Cloud9 IDE is an on-line development environment for Javascript and Node.js applications as well as HTML, CSS, PHP, Java, Ruby and 23 other languages. It is designed for developers looking for a modern and secure IDE that strives to work efficiently by having their code accessible on-line from anywhere via Cloud9 IDE workspaces. Launched in March 2011, Cloud9 IDE quickly took steps to expand the functionality it initially offered developers with its on-line environment, hoping to offer a user work flow with the ability to develop and deploy runtime code from the same on-line platform on which it had been developed. Cloud9 IDE hoped to give developers a more robust offering, combining editing tools and the runtime environment into a single platform, all within the Cloud.

Looking to collaborate with another leading vendor to enhance its platform, Cloud9 IDE selected Red Hat for its OpenShift Online offering. One of the many reasons it selected OpenShift Online was for the inherent security provided through the PaaS solution's inclusion of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Today, by leveraging OpenShift Online containers, Cloud9 IDE workspaces provide developers with a single on-line place to store, run and configure their files, all while offering a full terminal and full shell access into the container. While inside a workspace, a user can access Cloud9 IDE and complete the same functions that can be done on a desktop or laptop machine. In addition to security, the switch to OpenShift Online provides a cost-efficiency benefit as it offers a multi-tenant model where multiple workspaces run on the same virtual machine.

The combination of Cloud9 IDE and OpenShift Online also allows users to run executables, including binary models, Node.js support, Ruby, PHP and C++ applications. This flexibility has allowed many to benefit from using Cloud9 IDE in their infrastructure, including start-ups, independent software vendors and freelance developers. Working with a variety of users has allowed Cloud9 IDE to explore the next phase of offerings within a private Cloud.

Ruben Daniels, CEO and founder, Cloud9 IDE, stated: "Once we really understood what OpenShift was capable of from a technical point of view, we realized we could integrate it to support a better work flow for our users to easily build apps. The combination of Red Hat’s leadership in PaaS and our capabilities at Cloud9 IDE offer developers an easy, flexible and efficient way to build and deploy applications. Our platform wouldn't be where it is today without OpenShift Online."

Ashesh Badani, general manager, Cloud Business Unit and OpenShift, Red Hat, stated: "We are excited to collaborate with Cloud9 IDE so more users and developers can experience the full range of programming languages and runtime ecosystems OpenShift has to offer, along with the inherent flexibility and ease of use of the platform. We look forward to continuing to enable more developers to easily utilize PaaS platforms like OpenShift Online for their applications."
