Leading the PaaS Market with Customers, Community and Innovation

Recently, there has been amazing energy in the blogosphere about Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS). It has been great to see people join conversations about many topics Red Hat has focused on for so long. PaaS, continuous integration and delivery, DevOps, and cutting-edge development practices are all things we focus on with OpenShift. They are all core to our identity and beliefs, keeping our commitment and investment in OpenShift stronger than ever. Red Hat is part of the community that leads innovation in these areas, and we consider OpenShift, and the technologies it contains, to be the vehicle to do that.

From the first day we introduced our public cloud offering, OpenShift Online, the influx of developers told us we were working on something special. We knew more people could experience OpenShift if we were able to take what we had learned from OpenShift Online and package it for datacenter deployments.

OpenShift Goes to School: How a little automation goes a long way in the classroom

long way to classroom One of the hardest things to get in any educational situation is computing resources--whether it's a hack-a-thon or a university. Many impediments make it hard to set up a smooth running class: budget, security, language stacks, and students with different laptop setups.

A while ago, I wrote about my experience teaching a Ruby course with OpenShift. Today, I'll extend those ideas to a broader area, because OpenShift handles many programming languages well.

Going Beyond Config Management Tools For DevOps

Two weeks ago I wrote a blog post arguing that DevOps is not just about culture (which, of course, is at the heart of DevOps) but also about aligning the right tools with the culture. Even though I don't claim a single prescription for handling DevOps, some felt I implied specific tools to be DevOps tools. I definitely agree with industry thinking that the needs of different organizations are different and no single tool can be offered as a prescription for DevOps. However, I still stand by my argument that one needs to align the right tools with the culture to reap the full benefits of DevOps. Any non-alignment or mis-alignment will lead to more pain instead of helping IT.

Having said that I want to take on the idea that only configuration management tools are the right DevOps tools.

JBoss Fuse on OpenShift: How to Connect to Twitter


In this tutorial you will use the Twitter connection example included in JBoss Fuse on OpenShift to create a simple connection to poll a constant feed of Twitter, listen for a keyword and then publish the results in real time to a log. You will learn how to modify the key word and save your changes so you can listen for a key word of your choice. And once the connection is made we will show you how to monitor this connection.

This tutorial begins after you have installed the Fuse cartridge and logged into the Fuse Management Console. If you wish to learn about that step, please check out the Getting Started page.
