Red Hat brings JBoss Enterprise Application Platform to Microsoft Azure, making it easier to move to the cloud for traditional Java applications

The offer allows the migration of Java applications to cloud environments

Bombay – 25 May 2020 – Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) on Microsoft Azure, enabling organizations to realize the benefits of a cloud-based architecture to modernize their existing Jakarta 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 8 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.

With JBoss EAP on Microsoft Azure, customers can:

Develop modern Jakarta EE applications. By using JBoss EAP with Azure’s extended and complementary services, customers can build flexible, scalable, and more secure cloud-native applications. They can build them on JBoss EAP and get support through Red Hat Runtimes.

Run JBoss EAP in the environment that best meets their needs. Available as both a hosted and customer-managed offering, customers can run applications with JBoss EAP on Azure virtual machines (VMs) through Azure Marketplace, or adopt a hosted JBoss EAP offering through Azure App Service (preview public), with pricing on request. For customers looking for container-based solutions, JBoss EAP is also supported on Azure Red Hat OpenShift.

Savings opportunity. Moving Java applications to the cloud can help reduce the costs associated with managing on-premises data centers, including IT infrastructure, operating systems, and storage. In doing so, it can help shift large upfront capital expenditures to more predictable operating expenses.

Have greater confidence. JBoss EAP on Azure combines the open source expertise of Red Hat and the strength of Microsoft’s public cloud and is jointly supported by both companies.
