Red Hat Delivers Unified Integration Platform for Cloud-Native Application Development

Adds end-to-end API lifecycle support and new capabilities for agile
integration across hybrid architectures

RALEIGH, N.C.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/3scale?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#3scalelt;/agt;–Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced an expansion of its integration product
portfolio with new components and capabilities for connecting
applications, data and devices across hybrid
architectures
. The additions are featured in the latest release of
Red Hat Integration, and include 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.

Building on Red
Hat OpenShift Container Platform
, the industry’s most comprehensive
enterprise Kubernetes platform, these technologies are designed to weave
together critical integration
and messaging capabilities
with a cloud-native
toolchain to provide a unified end-to-end experience, from design to
development, deployment and management.

Self-service messaging on a cloud platform

Messaging enables applications to exchange data with each other while at
the same time insulating the system from potential service interruptions
or implementation changes. AMQ Online, now available, is designed to
deliver the same powerful connectivity capabilities of Red
Hat AMQ
with the speed and flexibility of a cloud-based service.
This is designed to provide developers with on-demand self-service
messaging capabilities through a browser, enabling them to provision
and scale application messaging
when and where they need it.

Event streaming for cloud-native applications

Red Hat Integration now includes AMQ
Streams
, a high-performance data streaming capability in Red Hat AMQ
that is designed to bring speed and scale to event-driven microservices
environments. Based on the Apache Kafka open source project, AMQ Streams
has been optimized for running on OpenShift Container Platform where it
can take advantage of OpenShift Operators to automate the deployment,
management, upgrades and configuration of a Kafka ecosystem installation.

Integrate more with less code

Red Hat’s low-code integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS) offering,
Fuse Online, now includes predefined connectors for enterprise data
sources, including Google Calendar and Slack, enabling the platform to
send and receive related events and messages; Apache Kafka, to help
connect to data streams; and, available as a technology preview, access
to Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resource (FHIR)-based healthcare
data.

Predefined connectors like these, as well as the more than 200
connectors already available through Red
Hat Fuse
, enable users to more quickly integrate enterprise data
sources into their application environment.

End-to-end API lifecycle support

As building blocks underpinning today’s hyperconnected economy, APIs can
shift the way organizations conduct business in the digital era. The
ability to more quickly deliver API-centric services and solutions can
help businesses accelerate innovation and time-to-market.

To better enable organizations to meet this need, Red Hat Integration
adds support for the API
lifecycle
, including:

  • Design, using a web-based API designer that implements the
    OpenAPI 2.0 specification;
  • Development, augmented by the ability for users to kickstart
    their API development by generating an implementation from either new
    or preexisting API definitions;
  • Deployment as cloud-native services within OpenShift Container
    Platform, extending connectivity across hybrid and multicloud
    environments;
  • Management — APIs deployed in OpenShift Container Platform can
    be discovered and managed

In addition, Red Hat Integration now includes a command line interface
that enables customers to use orchestration/provisioning tools like Red
Hat Ansible Automation
to configure their Red
Hat 3scale API Management
implementations.

Red Hat Integration is a set of agile and flexible integration and
messaging technologies that are designed to provide API connectivity,
data transformation, service composition and orchestration, real-time
messaging, cross-datacenter message streaming, and API management to
connect apps across hybrid cloud architectures and enable API-centric
business services.

“Digital
transformation is predicated on the notion that software is a source of
differentiation for organizations today. Companies are striving to
improve their ability to deliver new features and services faster. This
is what we have designed Red Hat Integration to offer — flexible and
powerful integration capabilities, delivered in a unified and familiar
package, optimized for hybrid environments. When you can apply this
level of agility across the integration lifecycle, and be able to deploy
and scale integration to connect assets across hybrid and multicloud
environments, it can set the business up to compete more effectively in
a changing marketplace.”

Carl Lehmann, principal analyst, Architecture, 451 Research
“Integration
technology must continuously evolve in the hybrid multicloud era.
Traditional on-premises tools and more recent integration
platform-as-a-service (iPaaS) technology designed for cloud connectivity
are converging. Unified integration platforms, like that offered by Red
Hat, will feature a combination of capabilities such as cloud-to-ground,
cloud-to-cloud, ESB, messaging and API management. These features are
emerging as the foundation of next-generation multipurpose hybrid
integration platforms.”
