Red Hat Positioned In The Leaders Quadrant Of The Magic Quadrant For On-Premise Application Platforms

Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced it has been positioned by Gartner, Inc. in the Leaders quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for On-Premises Application Platforms (1), for its solutions including Red Hat JBoss Middleware and OpenShift Enterprise, the company’s private Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering.

Gartner assessed 16 vendors in this Magic Quadrant, which profiles the leading application infrastructure vendors that provide IT developers and architects with complete end-to-end support for application projects for enterprise use. The full report is available here.

“Today's new software products are challenging, because of the many new architectural notions that are coming from the cloud, social, mobile and big data innovations taking place within the technology landscape,” noted the authoring analysts. “Core business applications retain many of their older architectural features, such as service orientation, separation of front and back ends, and loose coupling.”

“In addition, developers are seeking cloudlike capabilities and behaviors. Organizations want their applications to be horizontally scalable, to take advantage of modern virtualized infrastructure, and possibly to leverage IaaS,” the report continued. “They must be easy to control from an operational point of view, and fully automated in those respects. They must also leverage new approaches in information management. In-memory data combined with the high degree of parallelism available in today's infrastructure can be used to create complex analytics and highly responsive transaction processing in modern applications.”

“In my opinion, Red Hat’s position in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant validates our track record of innovation and proven solutions for application development,” said Craig Muzilla, vice president, Middleware, Red Hat. “We have built our portfolio to support a wide range of application requirements, ranging from SOA-style business applications to private PaaS as organizations transition to the cloud.”

Red Hat’s portfolio of open hybrid cloud solutions includes several offerings for on-premise application development. Red Hat JBoss Middleware is a comprehensive portfolio of middleware solutions that help customers optimize their business processes, including an application server, service-oriented architecture, business rules management system, enterprise service bus, and messaging. OpenShift Enterprise is a versatile platform for application development, operations, and IT architecture as it provides users with access to a cloud-based application platform built on a trusted stack of open source Red Hat technologies. OpenShift Enterprise automates much of the provisioning and systems management of the application platform stack in a way that enables the IT team to more easily meet growing business demands for new application services.
