Red Hat Releases OpenShift Enterprise

Nov 29, 2012

Enterprise-ready PaaS tool brings cloud-based development to private or hybrid cloud environments.

Red Hat announces the general availability of OpenShift Enterprise, an “enterprise-ready PaaS product from Red Hat that is designed to be installed on-premise within customer datacenters or private, public, or hybrid clouds.”

The announcement states that OpenShift Enterprise product lets customers streamline and standardize developer workflows, thereby facilitating faster IT service delivery. The product is built on open source-based Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux, JBoss Enterprise Application Platform, and OpenShift Origin, which is also the basis for Red Hat’s online OpenShift PaaS service that has been available in a free beta since May 2011.

According to the company – with inclusion of JBoss Enterprise Application Platform 6 – OpenShift Enterprise is the only Java EE 6-certified on-premise PaaS available today. OpenShift Enterprise supports Java, Ruby, Python, PHP, and Perl, and it includes a cartridge-based architecture to allow customers to include their own middleware services.

OpenShift Enterprise is available immediately; however, the product is initially being offered only in North America, the United Kingdom, and Continental Europe, with plans for global availability in the future. The OpenShift PaaS online service is available in developer preview from https://openshift.redhat.com.
