Red Hat, a global provider of open source solutions, today announced the expansion of OpenShift Marketplace, its one-stop shop that enables customers of all sizes to find and try solutions for their cloud applications. With today’s announcement, Red Hat has simplified the purchasing experience for OpenShift Marketplace, introducing integrated billing that enables customers to buy complementary solutions with ease, fulfilling its vision for OpenShift Marketplace as a one-stop shop. Additionally, Red Hat has expanded OpenShift Marketplace to include add-on offerings from several new OpenShift ecosystem partners, bringing even more choice to OpenShift developers.
Red Hat launched OpenShift Marketplace in April 2014, bringing the power of Red Hat’s OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) partner ecosystem directly to OpenShift Online customers, and enabling them to experience the benefits of enterprise PaaS with tightly integrated, complementary solutions developed for the public cloud – all without losing time on technology integration. With OpenShift Marketplace, customers are able to easily and securely discover, procure, and manage leading OpenShift application technologies from a single location including database, email delivery services, messaging queues, application performance monitoring and more, all managed from a central location.
As the number of OpenShift Online applications grows, recently passing two million applications on the platform, the expansion of OpenShift Marketplace is designed to offer both partners and customers a more streamlined experience. Users can sign in to the OpenShift Marketplace once using their Red Hat login, efficiently search a variety of add-on services, and purchase these services through their Red Hat account.
The OpenShift Marketplace provides an ideal platform for Software-as-as-Service (SaaS) ISVs to reach customers and developers in one easy, interactive location, and to showcase their solutions, giving customers access to a variety of offerings from cloud industry leaders. With today’s announcement, customers and partners can now self-service their own profile management, list multiple editions of their offerings, and bind their services to OpenShift applications using capabilities from the newest OpenShift Marketplace members, including:
BlazeMeter, providing performance and load testing as a self-service platform for mobile, web and API’s;
ClearDB, providing database-as-a-service capabilities for MySQL powered applications;
Collabnet, specializing in cloud-based Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) to increase enterprise agility and governance;
DreamFactory, allowing developers to choose their favorite environment to write modern applications for phone, tablet or desktop;
LoadImpact, providing DevOps testing for automated, on-demand application performance;
New Relic, a software analytics company providing SaaS-based solutions to interface between web and native mobile applications; and
PubNub, enabling real-time applications to grow and scale globally with cloud infrastructure.
