Red Hat Unveils OpenShift PaaS Marketplace

The OpenShift Marketplace is Red Hat "sending a signal to the market that 'we'll help you find solutions for your applications through our partner ecosystem,' " said analyst Laura DiDio. While it might be helpful to enterprise customers, she said, that kind of support from Red Hat for OpenShift could be essential to small- and medium-size businesses.
 



Open-source solution provider Red Hat has announced its OpenShift Marketplace, providing one-stop shopping for partner products and services for its OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). The marketplace, being rolled out to the regions served by the OpenShift PaaS service and located at marketplace.openshift.com, will offer information, community, tools and other products relating to database, e-mail, messaging, administration and other functions.

Announced partners so far include BlazeMeter, ClearDB, Iron.io, MongoLab, New Relic, Redis Labs, SendGrid and Shippable. The marketplace was announced at the Red Hat Summit taking place this week in San Francisco.

Julio Tapia, director of the OpenShift ecosystem at Red Hat, said in a statement that the marketplace "is our next step towards our goal of providing customers the widest variety of choice when it comes to technologies that complement their OpenShift experience."

'Sending a Signal'

Laura DiDio, an analyst with industry research firm Information Technology Intelligence Consulting, told us that the OpenShift Marketplace is "sending a signal to the market that 'we'll help you find solutions for your applications through our partner ecosystem.' " While this might be helpful to enterprise customers, she said, this kind of support could be essential to small- and medium-size business customers.

As announced, the marketplace does not appear to be offering any new services or products, DiDio said, "except they're branding it and they're expanding it," plus centralizing it.

In other news from its Summit, Red Hat announced Tuesday the availability of Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.1 and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ 6.1 for standards-based integration and messaging. JBoss Fuse is a small-footprint enterprise service bus designed for rapid integration, either on-premise or in the cloud. JBoss A-MQ is a high-performance messaging platform.

New Book, Google Collaboration

The company notes that, as the Internet of Things begins to take shape, IT support will inevitably become more distributed, and both updates can help organizations in their integration challenges. Highlights of the new releases include full support for Advanced Messaging Queuing Protocol for the interconnection of messaging servers and clients, more than 150 out-of-the-box connectors in JBoss Fuse for such systems as SAP, and updated management capabilities for the console to control individual integration processes.

Meanwhile, Red Hat has announced several collaborations with Dell. The collaborations are based around the open-source cloud platform OpenStack, and include a test and production environment for developers.

Additionally, a new book for developers wanting to use OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service was announced this week. Written by two members of Red Hat's OpenShift team, "Getting Started with OpenShift" is designed for newcomers to PaaS.

Last week, Red Hat announced a collaboration with Google so that Red Hat customers could move their eligible Enterprise Linux subscriptions to Google Compute Engine through Red Hat Cloud Access.

Google has been part of the Red Hat Certified Cloud Provider program since November of last year. General availability for Google Compute Engine was announced in December, including support for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.
