RALEIGH, N.C., March 12 — Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that it has added Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ to its enterprise middleware portfolio. The products are based on technologies acquired from FuseSource in Sept. 2012 and are designed to enhance Red Hat’s enterprise integration and messaging capabilities.
Integration plays a significant role in driving middleware technology adoption and is expected to continue to be front and center as external forces like mobile technology, social media and cloud infrastructure require integrated enterprise systems for improved efficiency and growth. Enterprises wrestling to overcome inefficiencies caused by islands of information—and the negative impact on customer service—can benefit from the advanced integration and messaging capabilities of Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ.
Red Hat JBoss Fuse is a flexible open source Enterprise Service Bus (ESB) based on popular Apache projects such as Camel, a versatile enterprise integration pattern framework, which enable faster time-to-solution integration implementations. Red Hat JBoss A-MQ is based largely on the Apache ActiveMQ project and provides a standards-based, high-performance messaging platform.
The addition of both products broadens Red Hat’s integration technology portfolio with proven and popular integration and messaging platforms and advances Red Hat’s vision for creating and empowering intelligent, integrated enterprises. New features shared by both products include:
Integration and messaging projects drive services and additional software value-add products for Red Hat’s network of systems integrator (SI) and independent software vendor (ISV) partners. By bolstering its product line in these areas, Red Hat further equips its partners to capture larger deals backed by a comprehensive portfolio of budget-friendly projects and services, and ultimately help businesses move closer to becoming intelligent, integrated enterprises.
Red Hat JBoss Middleware meets the broad range of development, deployment and integration requirements across on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments, providing cost-effective and open alternatives to more expensive, heavy-weight proprietary products.
Beta versions of Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ are available today. Both products are scheduled for general availability in April.
Craig Muzilla, vice president and general manager, Middleware, Red Hat
“These technologies, and the dedicated communities behind them, bring to the table capabilities that we believe will define the future of enterprise integration and messaging. They are open, flexible, high-performing, lightweight and fully capable in cloud, on premise or hybrid computing environments. Introducing these products as part of the Red Hat JBoss Middleware family gives enterprises a way to use Camel and Active MQ with confidence and represents a significant and symbolic step toward realizing our vision of empowering customers to become intelligent, integrated enterprises.”
Stephen D. Hendrick, group vice president for application development and deployment research, IDC
“Middleware platforms are continually evolving to meet application needs. Especially important today is support for real-time messaging and integration as application development turns more social and mobile. Adding and assimilating messaging and integration capabilities in a middleware stack, like Red Hat is doing, allows customers to quickly and cost effectively integrate applications, data, and devices across the entire enterprise. Products like JBoss Fuse and JBoss A-MQ, that have open source roots, can be especially appealing to ecosystem partners because of the combined product support and licensing flexibility that is characteristic of open source derived products."
Joe Dickman, senior vice president, Vizuri
“These technologies deliver an enormous competitive edge for our clients by empowering them to integrate various systems more quickly and efficiently in a standard and compliant manner. We see high interest for mission-critical lightweight integration and messaging technologies, especially for Camel. These technologies are increasingly coming up as a top priority during client conversations. From a partner perspective, Red Hat is creating opportunities for us and our clients to deliver innovation and business value with these products.”

The ever-growing complexity of scientific and engineering problems continues to pose new computational challenges. Thus, we present a novel federation model that enables end-users with the ability to aggregate heterogeneous resource scale problems. The feasibility of this federation model has been proven, in the context of the UberCloud HPC Experiment, by gathering the most comprehensive information to date on the effects of pillars on microfluid channel flow.
Large-scale, worldwide scientific initiatives rely on some cloud-based system to both coordinate efforts and manage computational efforts at peak times that cannot be contained within the combined in-house HPC resources. Last week at Google I/O, Brookhaven National Lab’s Sergey Panitkin discussed the role of the Google Compute Engine in providing computational support to ATLAS, a detector of high-energy particles at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
Frank Ding, engineering analysis & technical computing manager at Simpson Strong-Tie, discussed the advantages of utilizing the cloud for occasional scientific computing, identified the obstacles to doing so, and proposed workarounds to some of those obstacles.

The study of climate change is one of those scientific problems where it is almost essential to model the entire Earth to attain accurate results and make worthwhile predictions. In an attempt to make climate science more accessible to smaller research facilities, NASA introduced what they call ‘Climate in a Box,’ a system they note acts as a desktop supercomputer.

When it comes to cloud, long distances mean unacceptably high latencies. Researchers from the University of Bonn in Germany examined those latency issues of doing CFD modeling in the cloud by utilizing a common CFD and its utilization in HPC instance types including both CPU and GPU cores of Amazon EC2.
05/10/2013 | Cleversafe, Cray, DDN, NetApp, & Panasas | From Wall Street to Hollywood, drug discovery to homeland security, companies and organizations of all sizes and stripes are coming face to face with the challenges – and opportunities – afforded by Big Data. Before anyone can utilize these extraordinary data repositories, however, they must first harness and manage their data stores, and do so utilizing technologies that underscore affordability, security, and scalability.
