Red Hat Introduces JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1

Offers enterprise-class open source data virtualization

Red Hat has announced the availability of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1, which includes new extensions for data services integration.

JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform 5.1, a superset of JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1, is an open source data virtualization and integration platform that includes tools to create data services out of multiple data stores with different formats, presenting information to applications and business processes in an easy-to-use service. 
These data services become reusable assets across the enterprise.

We're beginning to see a real marketplace for open source-based integration and middleware, and in many ways the open source versions are advancing the value and variety of these services beyond where the commercial products can quickly tread. The advantages of community development and open source sharing really shine when multiple and fast-adapting integrations are involved.



What's more, as cloud and SaaS services become more common, ways of integrating data and applications assets -- regardless or origins -- will need to keep pace. Standardization and inclusiveness of integration points and types may be much better served by a community approach, and open source licenses, than waiting for a commercial product upgrade, or costly custom integrations.

I also see enterprises, SMBs, ISVs and cloud providers working to elevate the concept of "applications" more to the business processes level. And that means that decomposing and re-composing and orchestrating of services -- dare I say via SOA principles -- becomes essential, again, regardless of services, data and assets origins.

Lastly, the interest and value in Big Data benefits is also roiling the landscape. The integration of data then becomes tactical, strategic, imperative and at the heart of what drives an agile and instant-on enterprise.

“Being able to integrate and synchronize useful information out of a wide range of disparate data sources remains a serious stumbling block to the enterprise,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware BusinessUnit at Raleigh, N.C.-based Red Hat. “JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform 5.1 is a flexible, standards-based integration and data virtualization solution built on JBossEnterprise SOA Platform that delivers more efficient and cost-effective application and data integration techniques, allowing enterprises to more fully realize the value of their data.”

All businesses draw upon many different data sources and formats to run their applications. In many cases these data sources are hardwired into applications through data access frameworks that reduce agility and make control and compliance difficult. This data architecture counters the agility and cost-savings benefits delivered by service-oriented architectures (SOA) by forcing redundant data silos for each application.

Multiple data stores
D
ata Services Platform 5.1 aims to address these problems by virtualizing multiple data stores simultaneously, delivering data services consumable by multiple applications and business processes. By leveraging the integrated JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1, the information delivered using data virtualization can more easily be integrated into the business via the enterprise service bus (ESB) included with the platform. 


JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1 includes:

  • Apache CXF web services stack
  • JBoss Developer Studio 4.0, which features updated SOA tooling for ESB and data virtualization
  • A technology preview of WS-BPEL, which delivers service orchestration
  • A technology preview of Apache Camel Gateway, which is a popular enterprise integration pattern framework that brings an expanded set of adapters to JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform
  • Updated certifications -- Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, Windows 2008, IBM, JDK, among others

    Being able to integrate and synchronize useful information out of a wide range of disparate data sources remains a serious stumbling block to the enterprise.

JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform follows the JBoss Open Choice strategy of offering a choice of integration architectures, messaging platforms, and deployment options. Also, both JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1 and JBoss Enterprise Data Services Platform 5.1 are designed to leverage past and present solutions, such as SOA integration, through the ESB, event-driven architecture (EDA) and data virtualization, while building a foundation to support future integration paradigms, such as integrating cloud, hybrid, and on-premise data, services and applications.

Along with JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform 5.1, Red Hat is offering a new two-day training course, JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform – ESB Implementation, which is focused on developing and deploying ESB providers and services using JBoss Developer Studio and JBoss Enterprise SOA Platform.

When growing capacity and power in the data center, the architectural trade-offs between server scale-up vs. scale-out continue to be debated. Both approaches are valid: scale-out adds multiple, smaller servers running in a distributed computing model, while scale-up adds fewer, more powerful servers that are capable of running larger workloads. It’s worth noting that there are additional, unique advantages that scale-up architectures offer. One big advantage is large memory and compute capacity...
