Red Hat further expands portfolio for hybrid cloud-based architectures

Red Hat has further expanded its product portfolio for connecting applications, data and various integration applications with a number of new features and support programs.

The now added integration applications are included in the latest version of the Red Hat Integration solution. These include the solutions Red Hat AMQ Online, Red Hat AMQ Streams, new connectors for Red Hat Fuse Online and end-to-end application programming interface (API) lifecycle support.

Specifically, Red Hat Integration includes agile and flexible integration and messaging technologies that enable API connectivity, data transformation, service composition and orchestration, real-time messaging, cross-data center message streaming and API management to connect apps across hybrid cloud environments, enabling API-centric business services.

Based on OpenShift

The technologies presented here are built on the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform for Kubernetes. The solutions provide vendors with key integration and messaging capabilities with a cloud native toolchain to deliver a unified total experience, from design to development, deployment and management.

Cloud-based self-service messaging

The now available Red Hat AMQ Online includes messaging capabilities that allow applications to exchange data with each other while shielding the system from possible interruptions or implementation changes.

The tool is designed to provide the same powerful connectivity capabilities of Red Hat AMQ with the speed and flexibility of a cloud-based service. The solution should provide developers with browser-based on-demand self-service messaging capabilities that allow them to offer application messaging and scale it when needed.

The newly added AMQ Streams tool is a powerful datastream functionality that provides speed and scalability for event-driven microservices. The functionality is based on the open source project Apache Kafka, and optimized for use on the OpenShift Container Platform. This allows it to use OpenShift Operators to automate the implementation, management, upgrades and configuration of a Kafka ecosystem installation.

More integration with less code

The low code iPaaS platform Fuse Online now also includes predefined connectors for enterprise data sources, including Google Calendar and Slack. This allows the platform to send and receive related events and messages.

It also has Apache Kafka to connect to data streams. The platform now also offers access to care data based on the Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR), which is only available as a technology preview.

With the pre-defined connector, as well as the more than 200 connectors already available through Red Hat Fuse, users can quickly integrate enterprise data sources into their application environment.

End-to-end API lifecycle support

Finally, the latest solutions through Red Hat Integration support the API lifecycle. Now added components include design capabilities using a web-based API designer that implements the OpenAPI 2.0 specification, development capabilities that allow users to accelerate their API development by generating an implementation based on new or already existing API definitions.

In addition, capabilities have been added for deploying cloud native services within the OpenShift, extending connectivity to hybrid and multi-client environments and APIs applications used in OpenShift. In addition, Red Hat Integration now has a command-line interface that allows end users to use orchestration/provisioning tools such as Red Hat Ansible Automation to configure their Red Hat 3scale API Management deployments.

Red Hat Integration is now available. Existing end users can receive updates via the Red Hat Customer Portal.
