At Red Hat Summit this week, Paul Cormier, executive vice president and president, Products and Technologies, demonstrated three stages of application modernization:
- rehosting / refactoring a monolithic app
- extending that app with OpenShift.io
- demoing how to manage applications and services in an integration platform as a service (iPaaS)
The iPaaS demonstration was the first public view of a new open source project focusing on low code integration capabilities on OpenShift. The new project is available in open source as http://syndesis.io, and community members are encouraged to become involved in the project over the next several milestones.
iPaaS provides a low code capability that supports non-technical users, that can quickly build integrations between common systems and data, but which is also built upon technology that supports full scale, mission critical enterprise integration projects.
What It Is
- Syndesis provides an iPaaS implementation built on Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat OpenShift technologies
- The easy-to-use cloud-native integration toolset allows a low-code web interface to:
- Create, connect and manage integrations quickly (no installation needed)
- Create and connect APIs (using web based tooling)
- Point and click tools to build, test & deploy integrations
- Pre-built connectors to connect multiple apps and services
- Build simple to complex connections
- Built on Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat OpenShift, allowing the same underlying technology proven for large scale or sophisticated deployments
Why This Is Different
- Syndesis is a curation of multiple open source communities, focusing on providing a fully open source iPaaS, low-code environment based on Apache Camel, JBoss Fuse, etc.
- Focused on supporting the agile integration methodology
- Fully integrated with Kubernetes and Linux containers (Docker/Moby)
- Enables ubiquitous integrations: API-based hybrid integrations across on-premise, private or public cloud
- Can be extended with additional capabilities like Red Hat 3scale API Management, Red Hat JBoss BPM Suite, Red Hat JBoss BRMS and Red Hat JBoss Data Grid
