    [EN] Red Hat's New Products Centered Around Containers

    Dan Kusnetzky

    Red Hat has made a number of announcements at its user group conference, Red Hat Summit. The announcements ranged from the announcement of to facilitate the creation of software as a service applications, pre-built application runtimes to facilitate creation of OpenShift-based workloads, an index to help enterprises build more reliable container-based computing environments, an update to the Red Hat Gluster storage virtualization platform allowing it to be used in an AWS computing environment, and, of course, an announcement of a Red Hat/Amazon Web Services partnership.

    Red Hat summarized the announcements as follows:

    • A free, end-to-end, SaaS development environment for cloud-native apps built with popular open source code, built for modern dev teams using the latest technology. Built from technologies including Eclipse Che, includes collaboration tools for remote teams to analyze and assign work. Code is automatically containerized and easily deployed to OpenShift.
    • Red Hat OpenShift Application Runtimes. A pre-built, containerized runtimes for multi-language microservices (Spring Boot, Java EE, Eclipse MicroProfile, Eclipse Vert.x, and Node.js) natively integrated with OpenShift. Working with Red Hat OpenShift Application Services (containerized middleware services running on OpenShift).
    • Container Health Index. The index inspects and grades all of Red Hat's container products as well as those from certified ISV partners, giving customers confidence of deploying containers that are secure, stable and supported. Red Hat will be certifying 20 ISV partner products within the next 90 days.
    • Red Hat Gluster Storage with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform on AWS. A new solution to help customers achieve more consistent, software-defined storage for stateful applications.
    • Partnership with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to integrate AWS services into Red Hat OpenShift.

    The announcements targeted a number of industry hot buttons, including containers, rapid application development, storage virtualization and cloud computing. As with other announcements in the recent past, the company is integrating multiple open source projects and creating commercial-grade software products designed to provide an easy-to-use, reliable and maintainable enterprise computing environment.

    Dan's Take: Easing Cloud Deployments

    Red Hat is hoping to capitalize on industry trends towards more highly virtualized development and deployment environments as well as the use of on-premises, off-premises and hybrid computing models. Although the integration with AWS isn't complete, it's clear that Red Hat and Amazon want to make deploying workloads in the cloud as easy as deploying them locally.

    In previous announcements, Red Hat has pointed out that it has certified Red Hat software executing in both Microsoft Hyper-V and Azure cloud computing environments. So, the company can claim to support a broad portfolio of enterprise computing environments.

    These announcements will be of the most interest to large enterprises since they are the ones most likely to adopt these products. These tools might be used by independent software vendors (ISVs) to create IT solutions for smaller firms as well, leading to potential impact on some small to medium size business.

    Why the Red Hat-Amazon OpenShift partnership is a big deal

    Build an app on premises and port it into AWS's cloud

    Brandon Butler

    It’s a hybrid and multi-cloud world, at least according to Red Hat.

    So this week at its Summit in Boston the company that is known for commercializing open source projects for enterprises has taken steps to further facilitate how users of its application development tools can manage workloads across public clouds and on-premises systems.

    Here are the key details: Red Hat announced native access to Amazon Web Services products in its Red Hat OpenShift product. OpenShift is the company’s platform as a service (PaaS) application development software, and it’s also the company’s main tool for helping enterprises deploy application containers, including those from Docker.

    Deeper integration between OpenShift and AWS means that OpenShift users can access services such as Amazon Aurora, the company’s cloud-based database, the Amazon RedShift data warehouse product and other cloud-based AWS services directly through OpenShift.

    This is significant news for multiple reasons. Firstly, as some have pointed out, the partnership between AWS and Red Hat OpenShift further solidifies OpenShift’s standing in the market because it now has stronger ties with the leading public IaaS cloud. Secondly, it supports OpenShift as a hybrid cloud platform that allows customers to extend workloads managed in OpenShift between their on-premises infrastructure and the public IaaS cloud.

    Meanwhile, OpenShift is building integrations across the cloud. Last year Red Hat and Google Cloud Platform announced a partnership between their platforms too. The idea here is that customers can deploy apps from OpenShift to AWS and Google’s clouds. One thing to watch in the future will be whether OpenShift makes it easy to transport apps between public clouds.

    For AWS, the partnership makes sense too. Like many of their pacts with independent service providers, this basically amounts to an on-ramp for moving applications to the AWS cloud.

    From a macro perspective, Red Hat is a healthy company: Revenues and profits have been increasing in recent years. But a key to the company’s future is continuing to develop money-making software. The company’s main cash-cow of a product from the past decade is named Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). A question from financial analysts is what will be the next big software product from Red Hat beyond RHEL. OpenShift could be that answer. With partnerships like the ones from AWS and Google, Red Hat is clearly investing heavily in it.
