Red Hat expands its portfolio of hybrid cloud technologies with new cloud services managed: OpenShift Api Management (already available), OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka and OpenShift Data Science (of
The services are integrated with Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated and help mitigate the operational complexity of modern IT environments, without sacrificing developer productivity and providing a common set of capabilities in open hybrid cloud environments and multiple clouds.
Moreover, Red Hat notes, last year he highlighted how critical the hybrid cloud operations on a scale are for CIO and IT managers, especially when faced with a demand for expanding services and having to maintain existing infrastructure commitments.
New cloud services shift responsibility and operational support to Red Hat and enable companies to build new generation applications with a focus on data distribution and API-driven access enable.
Red Hat’s new managed services
Based on the Apache Kafka open source project, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka allows development teams to more easily incorporate streaming data into their applications. When designing hybrid cloud applications, data streams provide the backbone to capture, communicate and process events for modern distributed application architectures.
Real-time data is a critical component of functional hybrid cloud applications, providing more immediate digital experiences wherever a service is provided. As a fully managed and hosted Kafka service, Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka allows developers to focus on building better applications faster, without having to worry about the basic data collection and processing requirements.
Red Hat OpenShift Streams for Apache Kafka is available as a preview for developers, with the overall availability expected by the end of the year.
Red Hat OpenShift Data Science is based on the Open Source Open Data Hub project and provides faster development, training and testing of machine learning models without the need for associated infrastructure. Red Hat OpenShift Data Science implements common data science tools as the basis of an AI-as-a-Service platform integrated with cloud services from selected partners, including ISV solutions from Red Hat Marketplace.
Red Hat OpenShift Data Science is available in beta as add-on for OpenShift Dedicated and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS, with general availability expected by the end of the year.
Red Hat OpenShift API Management offers comprehensive life cycle management of the application programming interface (API) at Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS. The combination of operations managed with the native integration of OpenShift allows organisations to focus on innovation and development in the construction, management and scalability of API-first applications, based on microservices, rather than infrastructure. Red Hat OpenShift API Management also allows customers to build their own API management program, with the ability to control access, monitor usage, share common APIs and evolve their overall application landscape through a single pipe
Red Hat OpenShift API Management is available today as an add-on for Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, and Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS.
New cloud services managed are based on the existing Red Hat OpenShift portfolio, which provides self- and fully-managed Kubernetes on major public clouds, allowing customers and partners in Red Hat to build a strategy of
Red Hat OpenShift Dedicated, a application development platform completely managed by Red Hat and hosted on Amazon Web Services (AWS) or Google Cloud, includes the management and integration of the technology components of the Lin platform By connecting OpenShift Dedicated to the datacenter, customers can implement a safer and more flexible hybrid cloud strategy with minimal infrastructure and operating expenses. Supported by a global site reliability engineering team (SRE-site reliability engineering), OpenShift Dedicated provides an application development platform with the ability to integrate and manage services across the stack,
In addition to OpenShift Dedicated, Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud, Red Hat OpenShift Service on AWS and Microsoft Azure Red Hat OpenShift are all available as Open services
