Red Hat's latest release, geared towards PaaS of the future

26 Jun 15

Red Hat has released a new Mobile Application Platform that integrates mobile-centric workloads with existing IT infrastructure.

The platform incorporates technology from the October 2014 acquisition of FeedHenry, with products from Red Hat’s JBoss Middleware and OpenShift PaaS portfolio, and adds new mobile services.

The Mobile Application Platform is designed to enable collaboration across development teams, such as front-end application developers, back-end IT integration, and DevOps teams.

It provides mobile capabilities that include security, reusable connections to back-end systems, and collaborative/agile app development.

According to Red Hat, as complex and sophisticated applications are extended to mobile devices, the defining factors of the next generation of PaaS capabilities will be a rich set of middleware services.

Colin McCabe, Red Hat director Consulting and Training, says, "Red Hat's Mobile platform is especially important for organisations in Australia that are continually looking to connect with customers and staff, wherever and whenever.

“From emergency response to real-time customer engagement, Australia's large geography and distributed population faces challenges that our new Mobile Platform solves easily and with extreme cost effectiveness."

Red Hat also announced the availability of a developer offering in OpenShift Online, its public cloud application development and hosting environment.

Full support for the Red Hat Mobile Application Platform in production environments via OpenShift Enterprise is planned for the coming year.

In bringing the Mobile Application Platform to OpenShift, Red Hat aims to further advance the Red Hat xPaaS services vision.

Red Hat also announced plans to help establish an open source upstream project that will carry the FeedHenry name and focus on the development of open source mobile technologies, which will include FeedHenry mobile application platform technology.

The community is expected to launch in the coming year.
