Red Hat launches advanced connectivity integration for Kubernetes applications
Red Hat has launched Integration, a comprehensive set of integration and event processing technologies for creating, extending and deploying container-based integration services across hybrid and multi-cloud environments. As an agile, distributed and API-centric solution, Red Hat Integration will enable organisations to connect and share data between applications and systems required in a digital world.
The world of enterprise IT has seen a massive shift over the last decade as cloud computing has changed the way we work and do business. Today, microservices, application programming interfaces (APIs) and containers are the predominant approach to building, connecting and deploying applications, and Kubernetes has become the undisputed standard for managing them at scale in any environment.
These technologies are core to cloud-native application development, and emerged from the need for organisations to better match the speed of the world around them. The digital experience, delivered through software, has become one of the leading factors in competitive differentiation for companies today. Being able to rapidly respond to dynamic market conditions, incorporate user feedback, or deploy new products and features is crucial to success.
Integration plays a key role in enabling this agility, and has continued to evolve in ways that support faster, more responsive and more efficient application architectures. As the technologies have progressed, Red Hat has also continued to advance our integration portfolio in ways that we believe help customers meet their business needs in the best way possible. Our work on the open source Strimzi project is a good example of this. We believe Strimzi is the best solution for running Apache Kafka on Kubernetes, and continue to invest in strengthening the technology and community.
