On July 10 Red Hat released version 1.2 of its on-premise Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering: OpenShift Enterprise.
OpenShift Enterprise is a platform for application development, operations, and IT architecture built on top of Red Hat technologies, including Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and OpenShift Origin, the upstream code that powers both OpenShift Enterprise and OpenShift Online.
OpenShift Enterprise 1.2 is available immediately for deployment within on-premise datacenters or in private, public or hybrid clouds in North America, UK, Europe and to select customers in Asia and Latin America.
OpenShift Enterprise 1.2 includes several new features, including:
- A brand new cartridge design and specification to complement the cartridge infrastructure within OpenShift: This new feature enables OpenShift Enterprise customers and partners to make additional technology services available to developers in a self-service fashion. In June, Red Hat announced the new cartridge specification and collaboration with OpenShift ecosystem partners to enable tighter integration with complementary partners including 10gen, Codenvy, Correlsense, EnterpriseDB, Iron.io, MongoLab, New Relic, OC Systems, and Zend. OpenShift Enterprise 1.2 brings the new cartridge specification and these partner capabilities to Red Hat’s on-premise private PaaS customers.
- In addition to the cartridges, OpenShift Enterprise 1.2 offers the added ability to create Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) subdomains and take advantage of WebSocket for additional networking support, enabling customers and developers to implement cloud solutions that focus on the code and accelerate their applications’ time to market.
