New products bring high-performance, mission-critical lightweight integration
and messaging technologies based on Apache Camel and Active MQ to middleware
portfolio
RALEIGH, N.C.--(Business Wire)--
Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world`s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced that it has added Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat
JBoss A-MQ to its enterprise middleware portfolio. The products are based on
technologies acquired from FuseSource in Sept. 2012 and are designed to enhance
Red Hat`s enterprise integration and messaging capabilities. 

Integration plays a significant role in driving middleware technology adoption
and is expected to continue to be front and center as external forces like
mobile technology, social media and cloud infrastructure require integrated
enterprise systems for improved efficiency and growth. Enterprises wrestling to
overcome inefficiencies caused by islands of information-and the negative impact
on customer service-can benefit from the advanced integration and messaging
capabilities of Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ. 

Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a flexible open source Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) based
on popular Apache projects such as Camel, a versatile enterprise integration
pattern framework, which enable faster time-to-solution integration
implementations. Red Hat JBoss A-MQ is based largely on the Apache ActiveMQ
project and provides a standards-based, high-performance messaging platform. 

The addition of both products broadens Red Hat`s integration technology
portfolio with proven and popular integration and messaging platforms and
advances Red Hat`s vision for creating and empowering intelligent, integrated
enterprises. New features shared by both products include:

* Improved Developer Tooling: Fuse IDE and JBoss Developer Studio provide an
intuitive, easy to use, drag-and-drop integration development environment. 
* Lightweight Architecture: Apache Karaf provides a lightweight container for
application and component deployment. 
* Operational Efficiency: Fuse Fabric provides a centralized console for
managing distributed containers, while JBoss Operations Network extends
additional management and monitoring capabilities for Red Hat JBoss Middleware
tools installed across the network.

Integration and messaging projects drive services and additional software
value-add products for Red Hat`s network of systems integrator (SI) and
independent software vendor (ISV) partners. By bolstering its product line in
these areas, Red Hat further equips its partners to capture larger deals backed
by a comprehensive portfolio of budget-friendly projects and services, and
ultimately help businesses move closer to becoming intelligent, integrated
enterprises. 

Red Hat JBoss Middleware meets the broad range of development, deployment and
integration requirements across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments,
providing cost-effective and open alternatives to more expensive, heavy-weight
proprietary products. 

Availability

Beta versions of Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ are available today.
Both products are scheduled for general availability in April. 

Supporting Quotes

Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat

"These technologies, and the dedicated communities behind them, bring to the
table capabilities that we believe will define the future of enterprise
integration and messaging. They are open, flexible, high-performing, lightweight
and fully capable in cloud, on premise or hybrid computing environments.
Introducing these products as part of the Red Hat JBoss Middleware family gives
enterprises a way to use Camel and Active MQ with confidence and represents a
significant and symbolic step toward realizing our vision of empowering
customers to become intelligent, integrated enterprises." 

Stephen D. Hendrick, group vice president for application development and
deployment research, IDC

"Middleware platforms are continually evolving to meet application needs.
Especially important today is support for real-time messaging and integration as
application development turns more social and mobile. Adding and assimilating
messaging and integration capabilities in a middleware stack, like Red Hat is
doing, allows customers to quickly and cost effectively integrate applications,
data, and devices across the entire enterprise. Products like JBoss Fuse and
JBoss A-MQ, that have open source roots, can be especially appealing to
ecosystem partners because of the combined product support and licensing
flexibility that is characteristic of open source derived products." 

Joe Dickman,senior vice president, Vizuri

"These technologies deliver an enormous competitive edge for our clients by
empowering them to integrate various systems more quickly and efficiently in a
standard and compliant manner. We see high interest for mission-critical
lightweight integration and messaging technologies, especially for Camel. These
technologies are increasingly coming up as a top priority during client
conversations. From a partner perspective, Red Hat is creating opportunities for
us and our clients to deliver innovation and business value with these
products."
