SOA Software Extends Red Hat's Integrated Platform


SOA Software, a provider of comprehensive Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) and Web Services governance, management, security, and mediation solutions, today announced that it is partnering with Red Hat (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, to accelerate simple, open, and affordable SOA solutions for the enterprise.

ebizQ received the following details:

The move signals the rapid emergence of open source solutions in a competitive SOA market that has been dominated by traditional, proprietary platform vendors.

Now, enterprises deploying SOA applications on Red Hat's JBoss Enterprise Middleware can take advantage of SOA Software's Service Manager™ and WorkBench™ products for critical governance, security, management, and mediation functions. JBoss Enterprise Middleware is an extensible set of leading open source software for creating and deploying modern applications such as Web applications, rich Internet applications, and Web Services. The added capabilities of the SOA Software Infrastructure Suite further strengthen JBoss Enterprise Middleware as the open source foundation for enterprise-wide managed SOA deployments.

“The era of Open Source SOA is here,” said Roberto Medrano, executive vice president of SOA Software. “And this partnership is evidence that innovative solutions are available today. Our large customers are increasingly searching for complete SOA solutions extending beyond the conventional large platform vendor universe, and our partnership with JBoss fills that need very nicely. This is a great opportunity for SOA Software, a move that signals that maturing position of open source SOA in the enterprise.”

“With our Open Source Architecture, Red Hat is driving out costs in the enterprise and accelerating the shift to SOA,” said Shaun Connolly, vice president of product management, JBoss Division, Red Hat. “Partners like SOA Software are essential to our goal of delivering maximum value, choice, and interoperability to our customers. The critical SOA governance features that SOA Software is bringing to the table will further extend the value of Red Hat's integrated Open Source Architecture.”

Customers can use SOA Software Infrastructure Suite with JBoss Application Server today. In the future, SOA Software will extend its support to JBoss ESB. SOA Software's Service Manager and WorkBench deliver capabilities such as authentication and authorization, privacy and non-repudiation, lifecycle management and workflow, provisioning and contract management, mediation and interoperability of heterogeneous platforms, quality of service, routing, high-availability, and load-balancing.
