Red Hat delivers the Platform-as-a-Service Cloud for open source developers

4 May 2011 Raleigh - Red Hat has introduced OpenShift, a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) for developers who build on open source. Red Hat OpenShift redefines the PaaS market by providing a new level of choice in languages, frameworks and Clouds for developers to build, test, run and manage their applications. Building on Red Hat's extensive JBoss expertise, OpenShift leads the PaaS market with innovative features, including CDI, and plans support for Java EE 6, extending the capabilities of PaaS to richer and more demanding applications. Building on Red Hat's open source leadership, OpenShift is designed to end the lock-in of PaaS, allowing users to choose the Cloud provider upon which their application will run. OpenShift will be delivered as an on-line service.

"Cloud computing is starting to change the way open source developers are writing and delivering applications", stated Judith Hurwitz, president and CEO at Hurwitz and Associates. "Therefore the market for platform-as-a-service is beginning to expand at a rapid pace. Red Hat's OpenShift helps developers by providing access to a variety of development and deployment options."

Red Hat OpenShift delivers greater flexibility than any other PaaS, by supporting more development frameworks for Java, Python, PHP and Ruby, including Spring, Seam, Weld, CDI, Rails, Rack, Symfony, Zend Framework, Twisted, Django and Java EE. It includes both SQL and NoSQL data stores and a distributed file system. By building on the Deltacloud Cloud interoperability standard, OpenShift is designed to allow developers to run their applications on any supported Red Hat Certified Public Cloud Provider, eliminating the lock-in associated with first-generation PaaS vendors.

"Developers turn to open source for innovation and choice. With OpenShift, we deliver the first Platform-as-a-Service that meets those needs", stated Brian Stevens, vice president, Engineering and CTO at Red Hat. "By providing the broadest platform and choice of languages, frameworks and supported cloud providers, OpenShift gives developers the cloud destination they've been dreaming of."

A unique strength of OpenShift is that it brings to PaaS the industry-leading Red Hat and JBoss ecosystems, giving developers access to the industry’s broadest selection of middleware services. For example, OpenShift launches with support for MongoDB and other services certified to Red Hat Enterprise Linux. With its broad set of frameworks and languages, including Java, PHP, Python and Ruby, Red Hat OpenShift delivers the broadest set of functionality for developers in the cloud.

In addition to services designed for the needs of new cloud developers, OpenShift is the first public PaaS with Red Hat's enterprise-class JBoss services, such as transactions, business rules, transactions and messaging, providing the an easy on-ramp to the Cloud for enterprise developers. By building on Red Hat's experience and ecosystem in operating systems, virtualization and JBoss Enterprise Middleware, OpenShift uniquely meets the needs of both new Cloud developers and enterprises.
