Red Hat Introduces New Messaging Platform for Real-time Enterprises

Red Hat, world’s leading open source solutions provider has unveiled its new product suite Red Hat JBoss A-MQ 7 Red Hat has designed the messaging platform to provide clients a high-performance messaging platform. Built on a modern, asynchronous architecture for improved performance and scalability, JBoss A-MQ can be deployed, and easily managed, in different configurations. It also packs features such as a new router component that brings the ability to connect datacenters, cloud and on-premises deployments over a messaging network.

Red Hat looks to extend the messaging capabilities of enterprises with A-MQ. As the company continues to start a trend of real-time messaging, much will depend on how JBoss A-MQ can deliver high-performance direct messaging. JBoss A-MQ offers an easy-to-use integration development environment and supports ISO Advanced Message Queuing Protocol (AMQP) and ISO Message Queueing Telemetry Transport (MQTT) industry standards. A-MQ includes client libraries for Java (JMS 2.0), .NET, C++, Python, and JavaScript/Node.js.Red Hat making its way into the computing world will need to integrate applications, data services and devices using its popular open source technologies.

“Supporting standards-based protocols means that we can support a broad set of client libraries with A-MQ,” said David Ingham, director, Software Engineering at Red Hat. “Our open source implementation combined with open standard protocols provides the ultimate assurance that any application built with our product has even more options over time.”

In a world of mobile and cloud, it becomes essential to access enterprise’s information spread across multiple applications and processes. Red Hat has taken a major step in this direction by creating a number of flexible platforms and tools to secure itself in the digital economy. The company has plans to build an elastic-scale messaging service that runs on the Red Hat OpenShift container platform in the future.

The presence of an Interconnect message router in A-MQ 7 allows the messaging platform to stretch across the network and provides an intermediary path between producers and consumers. It operates a lot like IP where you have redundant paths through a network,” said Ingham. “For any given message, the network will determine the optimum path through the network for the fastest delivery, but if the optimum path becomes unavailable, then the traffic will be routed via an alternate path. You get resiliency and fault tolerance by having redundant paths in the network.”
