The PRWIRE Press Releases https:// 2016-08-09T22:34:44Z Red Hat ANZ Enterprise Mobile Index Reveals Mobile Adoption Is Steadily Rising 2016-08-09T22:34:44Z red-hat-anz-enterprise-mobile-index-reveals-mobile-adoption-is-steadily-rising While many organisations in Australia and New Zealand have established an enterprise mobile strategy, there is still work to be done to get the full benefits, according to findings from the ANZ Enterprise Mobile Index report, released today by Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world’s leading provider of open source solutions.   The study, which provides a snapshot of enterprise mobile strategies and adoption across Australia and New Zealand, found that 65 per cent of respondents have an enterprise mobile strategy in place. Yet, just 15 per cent of respondents have a mobile-first strategy, which means that mobile devices and applications are used across the organisation as a means to transform business processes to drive innovation in a unified way.   To be successful in gaining the benefits from their mobile strategy, organisations should evolve in a way that supports both the agility of new mobile initiatives and the stability of core IT functions. Infrastructure that supports an agile approach to mobility-based business solutions gives organisations the capacity to quickly make changes and innovate.   Key findings from the Index include: Many enterprise mobile strategies are internal-facing. 64 per cent of respondents are targeting employees with their mobile strategies, while 27 per cent are targeting customers. This suggests there is room for organisations to respond to increased demand from customers to engage with organisations via mobile platforms. Security is a major challenge to enterprise mobility development. Almost 80 per cent of respondents identified security as a ‘high priority’ (45 per cent) or second ’high priority’ (33 per cent) challenge to the mature development of an enterprise mobile strategy. This is followed by back-end integration, with 23 per cent of respondents identifying it as a ‘high priority’ challenge. This is not surprising, given the close relationship between the two, as organisations must focus not only on securing data but also securely integrating apps into business systems. Many platform solutions and Mobile Backend-as-a-Service (MBaaS) platforms today are designed to address both needs. IT skills shortages are preventing mobile maturity. Just over half (51 per cent) of respondents indicated that their companies do not have the right skills internally to develop and support their mobile enterprise strategy. This suggests the ANZ region is experiencing a skills shortage in the areas of mobile integration and application development. Organisations should consider using a central mobile platform to foster collaboration between internal and external third parties to help alleviate these resource and skills issues. Methodology The Red Hat ANZ Enterprise Mobile Index canvassed the opinions of 150 senior IT and management decision-makers (89 in Australia and 61 in New Zealand). The Index was conducted by third-party marketing company Outsource and sponsored by Red Hat.  Supporting QuoteMax McLaren, regional vice president and general manager, Red Hat “Enterprise mobility adoption is steadily rising in Australia and New Zealand as organisations find new ways to streamline operational efficiency, increase productivity, and collaborate more effectively. Over time, more and more organisations are expected to overcome the barriers holding back their mobile strategies, which we believe will lead to an increased focus on enterprise mobility in the coming years.”  About Red Hat, Inc.

Red Hat opens the door to a new paradigm for enterprise application development by combining its middleware stack and PaaS technologies to create a unified development and operations experience. In addition to the application container service based on Red Hat JBoss Enterprise Application Platform and new generally available integration and messaging services, JBoss xPaaS technologies available today in developer preview include services for data virtualisation, mobile, application containers, business process management, and business rules management. JBoss Fuse for xPaaS and JBoss A-MQ for xPaaS are based on Red Hat’s traditional on-premise integration and messaging offerings, Red Hat JBoss Fuse and Red Hat JBoss A-MQ. The latest versions of both products, announced at Red Hat Summit 2014, introduced features such as full support for AMQP 1.0, a vast library of connectors, improved high availability, and the ability to manage processes. The release of OpenShift Enterprise 2.2 brings improved integration with existing datacenter infrastructure and enables easy deployment on a variety of virtualisation and cloud technologies through integration with Red Hat CloudForms, the company’s hybrid cloud management offering. OpenShift Enterprise 2.2 provides out-of-the-box integration with popular identity management and DNS management platforms for easy integration into enterprise datacenters. In addition, enhanced PaaS management for operations is enabled by the addition of application placement and middleware cartridge configuration controls. OpenShift Enterprise deployment can be fully automated and controlled by Red Hat CloudForms. This capability enables OpenShift Enterprise to be deployed automatically to any hybrid cloud infrastructure managed by CloudForms.Supporting QuotesCraig Muzilla, senior vice president, Application Platforms Business, Red Hat “We believe JBoss xPaaS will be a game changer for how enterprise development will be done in the future. Red Hat is unique in its ability to combine JBoss and OpenShift to offer enterprises a unified experience for building, integrating, and running applications in an open hybrid cloud.”Massimo Pezzini, vice president, Gartner, et al, writes: "Enterprise iPaaS offerings increasingly compete with classic on-premises integration platforms. However, especially in large organizations, enterprise iPaaS offerings often cooperate with established integration middleware. I expect this to lead to the emergence of hybrid integration platforms, combining enterprise iPaaS characteristics with those of traditional on-premises integration platforms, enabling public and private cloud deployment models and serving a variety of requirements." 1Joe Dickman, senior vice president, Vizuri "The new JBoss xPaaS services on OpenShift deliver great value for our clients by empowering them to accelerate business innovation, increase efficiency, and reduce cost. The addition of JBoss Fuse for xPaaS and JBoss A-MQ for xPaaS enables our clients to easily and efficiently integrate cloud assets with on-premise assets. OpenShift Enterprise truly provides our customers with an agile and flexible private PaaS environment where they can quickly prototype solutions and increase efficiency in a standard and compliant manner. From a partner perspective, Red Hat is creating opportunities for us and our clients to deliver more business value with these products."1 Gartner: G00255649 - Magic Quadrant for Enterprise Integration Platform as a Service – Jan. 27, 2014 https://www.gartner.com/doc/2657018/magic-quadrant-enterprise-integration-platformAdditional Resources • Try JBoss xPaaS Services for OpenShift • Read more about Red Hat’s vision and strategy for JBoss xPaaSConnect with Red Hat • Learn more about Red Hat • Get more news in the Red Hat newsroom • Read the Red Hat blog • Follow Red Hat on Twitter • Join Red Hat on Facebook • Watch Red Hat videos on YouTube • Join Red Hat on Google+About Red Hat, Inc.Red Hat is the world's leading provider of open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to reliable and high-performing cloud, Linux, middleware, storage and virtualization technologies.

Red Hat cloud infrastructure version 5 adds advanced systems management for OpenStack private clouds 2014-11-07T03:59:53Z red-hat-cloud-infrastructure-version-5-adds-advanced-systems-management-for-openstack-private-clouds Sydney, Australia – Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, announced the general availability of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure Version 5, featuring the powerful systems management capabilities of Red Hat Satellite. Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure is a comprehensive solution that supports organisations on their journey from traditional datacenter virtualisation to OpenStack-powered clouds. With Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure Version 5, users can now manage their virtualisation and OpenStack environments simultaneously, via a single platform. IT organisations are in the midst of a shift from traditional virtualisation to more cloud-enabled architectures, and charting the course to move application workloads from one architecture to another while maintaining manageability and policies across discrete platforms. Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure is designed to address this need and enables organisations to build and manage a private cloud Infrastructure-as-a-Service (IaaS) based upon datacenter virtualisation and management technologies for traditional workloads, while providing an on-ramp to a highly scalable public-cloud-like infrastructure based on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform.  With the debut of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 5, the single subscription offering now includes: • Red Hat CloudForms, an open hybrid cloud management solution that provides visibility and control over existing heterogeneous virtual infrastructures and lets users deploy, monitor, and manage cloud services across virtualisation environments and public, private, and hybrid clouds. • Red Hat Satellite, a comprehensive solution providing complete lifecycle management across all components of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure, including physical infrastructure and tenant workloads. • Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform, a highly scalable IaaS solution that delivers an open, flexible, and enterprise-ready private cloud foundation built on the community OpenStack project integrated with and optimised for Red Hat Enterprise Linux. • Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, a comprehensive datacenter virtualisation product for Linux and Windows workloads that enables users to build an agile, secure virtualisation foundation with the features needed for traditional enterprise application workloads. The integration between these components of Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure provides true value and environment management for customers. Red Hat CloudForms provides self-service portals, provisioning, chargeback, metering of services on Red Hat Enterprise Linux OpenStack Platform and Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, while Red Hat Satellite performs Red Hat Enterprise Linux provisioning and lifecycle management tasks including discovery, drift remediation and Red Hat Enterprise Linux guest provisioning. In September 2014, Red Hat debuted Red Hat Satellite 6, providing a single management console and methodology for managing the tools required to build, deploy, run and retire a system. Red Hatalso expanded its hybrid cloud management capabilities in CloudForms earlier this year, adding private and public cloud platform support across a variety of hosting options, including OpenStack, Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager, and VMware.Supporting QuotesGary Chen, Research Manager, Cloud and Virtualization System Software, IDC “As more organisations continue to deploy traditional enterprise workloads and adopt new cloud native applications, it can be a challenge to blend the two environments and support the dynamics of both workload types. Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure’s varied capabilities enables users to create their own blend of cloud resources at their own pace, with a management system spanning resources for workloads across virtualised, private cloud, and public cloud environments.”Joe Fitzgerald, vice president and general manager, Cloud Management, Red Hat “Hybrid environments are simply the reality of today’s IT organisations, and organisations want to get to the cloud on their own terms and timeline. Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure acknowledges that reality, and by bringing software lifecycle and configuration management capabilities that span physical, virtual and cloud systems to users via the addition of Red Hat Satellite, we’re helping to establish Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure as one of the most comprehensive and premier cloud infrastructure solutions for enterprises.”Frank Seiferth, Senior Director, Strategic Business Development, IIS Technology “For our customers looking to build out their next generation IT infrastructure, Red Hat Cloud Infrastructure 5 presents a strong and appealing value proposition.

Fedora 18 Features Updated User Interfaces and Desktop Environments 2013-01-15T03:04:00Z untitled-release-231 RALEIGH, NC – January 15, 2013 – The Fedora Project, a Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT) sponsored and community-supported open source collaboration, today announced the availability of Fedora 18, the latest version of its free, open source operating system distribution. The Fedora Project community is dedicated to the development and advancement of open source technologies, which culminate in a new release of Fedora approximately twice each year. Fedora 18 combines cutting-edge open source features, a streamlined installation experience, and innovative technological enhancements into a reliable, flexible operating system that can be used by anyone. Notable Fedora 18 advancements include:User features: The user interface for Fedora's installation procedure, part of Anaconda, has been completely re-written, and provides significant improvements to the installation experience. Designed to be simple and understandable for a traditional desktop user, yet with robust options available for more complex installations, the new installation experience shines with a clean, modern look. The GNOME desktop environment has been updated to the 3.6 release, introducing new enhancements to the message tray and notifications, revisions to the Activities Overview, and accessibility support. KDE Plasma Workspaces has been updated as well, with the 4.9 version delivering improvements in stability and performance, and many new features. Additionally, the MATE and Cinnamon desktops are new desktop options in Fedora 18. Developer features: Fedora 18 includes several language and programming environment updates, with fresh versions of Python, Rails, D, and Perl. Clojure tooling packages and libraries have also been added in this release. Finally, SystemTap has been updated to the 2.0 release, extending its capabilities for instrumenting code and other diagnostic capabilities, and providing those abilities to a greater pool of user access levels. System administrator features: The recently released Samba 4 introduces the first free and open source implementation of Active Directory protocols, further enhancing its long-standing use for file and print sharing in heterogeneous server environments. Fedora 18 also includes multiple enhancements to storage management with new tools and libraries for storage area network (SAN) and network-attached storage (NAS) management, and the addition of System Storage Manager, a unified command-line interface for managing multiple storage technologies. oVirt Engine, the management application for the oVirt virtualization platform, brings in new features with its 3.1 release, and Eucalyptus, a platform for on-premise Infrastructure-as-a-Service (Iaas) clouds, makes its debut in Fedora 18 with its 3.2 release. Finally, Fedora continues to offer fresh releases of OpenStack, bringing in the Folsom release; Heat, an incubated OpenStack project, is newly available in Fedora, enabling via API the orchestration of cloud applications using file- or web-based templates. A complete list of Fedora 18 features is available on The Fedora Project community release announcement page: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/F18_release_announcement. The Fedora Project aims to release a new version of its free operating system approximately every six months, as a rapid development cycle encourages collaboration and the inclusion of the latest, leading-edge open source features available. Fedora is built by community members from across the globe, and the Fedora Project’s transparent and open collaboration process has attracted thousands of registered contributors, who collectively deliver releases of Fedora to an ever-expanding base of users worldwide. The total of unique IPs across Fedora releases since tracking was initiated at Fedora 7 is now approaching 45 million connections.The Fedora Project has also held multiple Fedora User and Developer Conferences (FUDCon) around the world during the past year including events in Blacksburg, Virginia, USA; Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia; Paris, France; and Valencia, Venezuela. The next upcoming FUDCon is planned for January 18 – 20, 2013 in Lawrence, Kansas, USA.AvailabilityFedora 18 is globally generally available today.Supporting QuoteRobyn Bergeron, Fedora Project Leader“The advances in Fedora 18 are an achievement, and the Fedora Project community truly has a release to be proud of,” said Robyn Bergeron, Fedora Project Leader at Red Hat. “Their hard work and dedication to delivering cutting-edge features, as well as their commitment to freedom and open source, have resulted in a release that is robust, yet flexible, and brimming with diverse enhancements.
