Why Red Hat

Red Hat's vision for Integration is based on the fact that Cloud Native and decoupled application architectures, built using Agile and DevOps methodology, need an approach with the same agility and adaptability for deployment.

This vision consists of combining integration technologies, agile distribution techniques and platforms developed directly in the cloud, to improve the speed and security of software distribution.

Red Hat believes that the traditional approach to integration, based on centralized teams controlling monolithic technologies, hinders the development and usability of distributed applications. Traditional integration technologies, such as centralized ESB, offer certain benefits (e.g., prioritizing security and data integrity), but rely on a single team to define enterprise-wide integrations.

  • A cloud-native application is a set of small, independent and loosely coupled microservices that are deployed in containers and connected via APIs or messaging services.

  • Each service implements a specific business function or use case, and its development can be assigned to small teams using DevOps workflows such as continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD).

  • This allows services to be designed quickly, deployed automatically and updated regularly, without the need for cascading development cycles.

  • These applications are distributed, so they represent a unique integration challenge compared to traditional monolithic applications: Agile Integration enables cloud-native development because it combines application requirements and business needs for integration.

Features

  • API-centric data and application integration.
  • Optimized integration, messaging and data transmission capabilities, with more than 200 connectors and an approach based on EIPs (Enterprise Integration Patterns).
  • Implementation of DevOps-ready applications with high adaptability, scalability, and low latency.
  • Standards-based hybrid cloud and container-native infrastructure.

Benefits

  • Connects modern or legacy applications and systems to free data from information silos.
  • Build and deploy applications with access to all necessary digital assets.
  • Learn more about the data and deliver engaging customer experiences.
  • Increase productivity with optimized development of integration and messaging capabilities.
  • Minimizes time-to-market, with support for modern agile development processes with automation and self-service approach.

Main products

The combination of Red Hat OpenShift and Red Hat Application Foundations creates a platform for Cloud Native applications for development and operations teams to efficiently and securely design and modernize applications.

At the same time, it balances developer choice and flexibility with operational security and control.

Red Hat OpenShift

Red Hat OpenShift is a unified platform for designing, modernizing and deploying applications on demand, to work faster and smarter with a complete set of services that allows you to market applications with the infrastructure of your choice.

Advantages of Red Hat Openshift

  • Kubernetes-based platform

    The platform is based on Kubernetes and offers a consistent experience across on premise as well as public and hybrid cloud deployments. It is a comprehensive platform for both traditional applications and those created in the cloud, making it possible to run them in any environment. This solution is based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux, supports Red Hat Ansible Automation Platform and enables automation inside and outside of Kubernetes clusters.

  • Uniformity for all infrastructures

    In addition to being a uniform platform that can run across all clouds, it provides a common abstraction layer for all infrastructures, giving development and operations teams the ability to package, deploy and manage applications in a consistent way, so they can run wherever is most convenient, without the need to create a different operating model for each environment.

  • Faster development of innovative applications

    As a complete enterprise Kubernetes platform, Red Hat OpenShift enables you to design, test, deploy and run applications, as well as provide self-service access to developer tools, a browser-based integrated development environment (IDE), a wide variety of coding languages, storage and data services, and continuous integration and delivery (CI/CD) services that support DevOps processes and allow you to automate application delivery.

  • Running and managing applications anywhere

    With Red Hat OpenShift, system administrators and operations teams can manage applications, virtual machines and containers from a single control plane.  You access the same interface, a centralized management console, regardless of where the solution is installed, from which you control the clusters, services and functions of multiple computers.

Red Hat Application foundations

Red Hat Application Foundations is the evolution of traditional middleware for cloud operations, with lightweight open-source solutions that provide scalability and security. This technology streamlines development; integrates systems, applications and data; and leverages the new capabilities of modern cloud-based architectures.

Advantages of Red Hat Application Foundations

  • Red Hat Application Foundations offers a comprehensive set of features that teams can use to adopt modern cloud architectures, including core patterns such as microservices, API-centric approach, and data streaming.
  • In addition, this solution can be used with applications running both on premise and in the cloud, and when combined with Red Hat OpenShift, a platform emerges that optimizes execution across the entire application lifecycle, increasing efficiency and adaptability by providing a uniform application platform to manage multi-cloud, hybrid cloud, or edge computing deployments. In this way, application development teams can generate innovations with modern cloud patterns, such as microservices, API design, data streaming and event-driven architectures, and leverage new features and benefits in the enterprise.
With Red Hat Application Foundations, you will be able to design a platform for developing and deploying applications, which supports:
  • Developers

    Leads to greater productivity and innovation

  • Operations teams

    Improves performance, reliability and adaptability of the code at the production stage

  • Business leaders

    Streamlines development, integration and management automation

our approach

For many of our customers, their first engagement with us is through an Integration Accelerator.
  • This low-friction, fixed-cost service enables organizations to quickly demonstrate the value of a Red Hat OpenShift and/or Red Hat Application Foundations deployment.

  • To do this, we help clients select meaningful use cases that demonstrate ROI from the outset, with a value-based approach.

  • We can help organizations plan their Red Hat adoption, define the right architecture to deploy the technology, understand the cost of ownership and optimize their consumption.

Today's cloud-native and decoupled application architectures, developed with Agile and DevOps methodology need an equally agile and scalable integration approach, for which Red Hat provides integration platforms and management software systems that allow you to quickly connect legacy technologies and microservices across environments.

Our DevOps and CI/CD engineers work with our clients' teams to ensure that the deployment and maintenance of these technologies are implemented in accordance with industry-recommended best practices.

We see Integration as a capability of organizations. For some of our clients we provide this complete end-to-end capability, for others we guide them in the creation of that capability or an associated center of excellence, regardless of whether the tasks involve integration design or development, deployment of a solution, provision of Scrum development teams or implementation of industry-specific reference architectures.

Integration is Chakray's DNA and we consider it fundamental to the success of companies that are digitally transformed in a connected world, that absorb it in their strategy and make it their own, generating value.

It is critical to understand and identify where the opportunity exists to use platforms more broadly to meet the needs of the organization and deliver that business value, which is difficult without a strategic understanding of the technology's contribution and its characteristics.

Red Hat Considerations

Due to the criticality of the scope of a technology such as Red Hat in the operation of organizations, from Chakray we always recommend the choice of the option supported by the manufacturer, since on the one hand it will allow to have the necessary guarantees for business continuity and on the other hand, provide room for improvement and sustainability of the software with the economic retribution for the mentioned support.

With Red Hat subscriptions, you get:

  • The tools you need to make the technology work in complex environments, such as technical support and documentation, assurance on the security of the solutions, flexibility to choose between different supported versions and deploy upgrades as needed

  • Access to the product roadmap and the ability to influence the definition of its direction, early analysis to identify and address security, compliance and configuration risks, and more.

  • As in any implementation of a core business activity management system, it must be accompanied by the adoption of process change as an integral and not exclusively technical initiative.

  • Generating that adoption capacity is a journey. Knowing when to use the right product or capability, building skills, sharing knowledge and establishing a center of excellence are all tasks where Chakray can add value through its experience and expertise.
