Red Hat PaaS: Bringing Open Choice & Application Portability to the Cloud
Today’s enterprises can realize significant advantages in cost, flexibility, and overall business agility by using cloud computing resources. With access to systems infrastructure and application infrastructure in the cloud, applications use only the resources they need, and organizations pay only for what they use - a model that promises to eliminate waste and shelfware, accelerate the creation of new applications, and maximize ongoing portability and flexibility. But to take advantage of cloud computing, must organizations, as some vendors claim, change their approaches to developing and integrating applications, and even rewrite applications?
With Red Hat PaaS, a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering based on JBoss Enterprise Middleware and other technologies, these complex approaches will not be necessary. Red Hat PaaS will enable organizations to radically simplify the process of developing, deploying, and managing applications in public and private clouds.
This paper describes the capabilities, direction, and underlying principles of Red Hat’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) strategy and is intended to help enterprise IT organizations, ISVs, and anyone who is planning a cloud deployment.
