Red Hat, a leading open source solution provider, announced Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) on Microsoft Azure, enabling organizations to leverage the benefits of a cloud-based architecture to modernize their Jakarta existing EE (formerly Java EE) and create new ones on Azure. Today, JBoss EAP is available as a native offering in Azure which is fully configured and ready to go, and will also soon be available as a fully supported runtime environment in Azure App Service which is managed by Microsoft.
Java continues to be an immensely popular programming language, with approximately eight million developers worldwide and a steady growth in the use of Jakarta EE to accelerate application development for the cloud. As the leading Jakarta EE-compliant open-source application server, JBoss EAP provides Java developers with powerful management and automation capabilities designed to improve productivity, as well as a lightweight architecture for building and deploying modern cloud-native applications. .
By bringing JBoss EAP to Azure, Red Hat is easing the transition to the cloud and giving organizations more choice and flexibility in how they plan for the future. Customers can bring existing applications to Azure, including JBoss EAP applications running on-premises or other Jakarta EE applications running on different application servers, choosing how they want to manage mission-critical Java-based applications in the cloud.
Rich Sharples, Senior Director of Product Management at Red Hat, said, “Red Hat and Microsoft have long been strategic partners. Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform continues to be the cornerstone of Red Hat’s commitment to enterprise Java, and Red Hat is the trusted leader in both open source and Java. By offering JBoss EAP on Azure, we combine the best of our areas of expertise and enable customers to successfully choose how they want to manage cloud applications.
Martijn Verburg, Senior Group Director at Microsoft, commented, “As two of the biggest names in enterprise software, it makes sense that we have such a strong relationship with Red Hat. Bringing JBoss EAP to Azure customers not only means getting to market faster and staying competitive, but also providing more options for building, deploying and managing a security-focused cloud environment that meets today’s business needs while adapting to future changes.
