Red Hat OpenShift -based offering unifies the software development lifecycle, streamlining modern application projects for the digitally-transforming enterprise
Red Hat announces Red Hat OpenShift.io, a free, online development environment optimized for creating cloud-native, container-based applications.
OpenShift.io touts to enable digital transformation with an end-to-end application development environment, requiring no installation and addressing all development phases.
The new solution combines several open source projects, including fabric8, Jenkins and Eclipse Che, Red Hat OpenShift.io delivers application development tools and environments needed to help organizations maintain relevancy in a digitally transforming marketplace.
Designed for development teams, whether in the same building or across the globe, the environment, to more effectively collaborate and create containerized, microservices-based solutions, deployed to hybrid cloud environments.
Red Hat OpenShift.io includes tools for:
- Team Collaboration
- Agile Planning
- Developer Workspace Management
- Application Coding and Testing
- Runtime Stack Analysis
- Continuous Integration and Delivery
Red Hat OpenShift.io introduces powerful, real-time stack analysis, which helps development teams to better detect critical vulnerabilities and uncommon usage patterns. This increases developer confidence in their software stack selections and reduces risk while also enabling tooling and stack recommendations based on industry best practices. Developers will be able to use the entire platform without the need to install anything locally, and their applications are built into Linux containers by default.
OpenShift.io also includes a free subscription to the Red Hat Developer Program, which offers a variety of Red Hat’s products for development use, including the no-cost Red Hat Enterprise Linux developer subscription, Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Middleware and other Red Hat technologies.
Harry Mower, senior director, Developer Programs Red Hat, said, “Regardless of what industry our customers are in, delivering new value through software will be key to their success. These next-generation products and services require next-generation development tools, a need that can be costly, time-consuming and difficult to implement for organizations that didn’t originate in the software world. Red Hat OpenShift.io provides a solution to this challenge by delivering necessary tools to develop, test and launch modern applications on top of an open application development environment hosted in the cloud.”
OpenShift.io will be available in limited developer preview. Users are encouraged to sign up at https://openshift.io
