RALEIGH, N.C. -- February 4, 2014

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source
solutions, today announced its next-generation service design, development and
integration platform, JBoss Fuse Service Works 6, to help enterprises unlock
information dispersed in different applications, integrate disparate business
processes, and transition to open hybrid cloud architectures.

Today’s enterprise IT environments are highly distributed, yet the
applications, workflows and business processes—many of which are
mission-critical to the function and operation of the business—are highly
dependent on one another. JBoss Fuse Service Works provides the integration,
orchestration, governance and monitoring required to meet the speed and
quality needs of the business. JBoss Fuse Service Works sets the stage for
faster and easier cloud, mobile and business process development projects by
allowing IT to simplify service-enabling of existing and new applications and

JBoss Fuse Service Works 6 represents the next version of Red Hat JBoss SOA
Platform and includes enterprise service bus (ESB) capabilities based on
Apache Camel, an implementation of many of the most commonly used enterprise
integration patterns (EIP). It leads to greater accuracy, agility and quality,
across enterprise applications and services. Additionally, JBoss Fuse Service
Works 6 provides a foundation for running integration in the cloud, setting
the stage for integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS).

JBoss Fuse Service Works includes:

  *Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) consisting of a modern enterprise integration
    pattern-based development model through Apache Camel, a high-performance
    messaging broker through Apache ActiveMQ, and a web services framework
    through Apache CXF.
  *Service delivery – Full life cycle support for developing, deploying and
    managing service-oriented applications is provided by a lightweight
    service delivery framework, based on Service Component Architecture (SCA),
    called SwitchYard. SwitchYard supports distributed and cross-functional
    teams with code and model-driven tooling, and enables developers to focus
    on the actual business logic by separating the underlying implementation.
  *Service governance – Life cycle management for services, from design and
    development through deployment, is based on the Overlord project, helping
    to define, expose and enforce rules or policies.
  *Business transaction monitoring – Overlord also provides the
    infrastructure to capture service activity information and then provides
    necessary metrics and alerts to help meet business and service level
    agreements (SLAs) and optimize the integration solutions.

Red Hat
“The diverse and interdependent nature of today’s business services ecosystems
requires more than simple service orchestration – integration, governance and
monitoring are crucial for supporting the needs of the business. JBoss Fuse
Service Works sets the stage for faster and easier cloud, mobile application
and business process development and integration by providing a comprehensive
offering that allows IT to simplify service-enabling of existing and new
applications and data.”

Erik Wallin, co-founder and chief operating officer, Shadow-Soft
“We’re excited to see Red Hat taking steps to help organizations be more
strategic in how they approach integration. Having a high level of visibility
and control over the full business service ecosystem – from applications to
business processes – can be a great advantage for modern enterprises, and
we’re excited about Red Hat’s approach to delivering this with JBoss Fuse
Service Works.”

Carl Lehmann, research manager, 451 Research
“A new term will become more common in our IT vernacular. ‘Business services’
are emerging as reusable and configurable components. They can integrate and
assemble to form new applications that span on-premise infrastructure and
cloud services. But they will require tools such as Red Hat’s JBoss Fuse
Service Works to simplify integration complexity and make practical open
hybrid cloud architecture.”
