Red Hat have launched OpenShift, a new PaaS for open source developers. Supported frameworks include Spring, Seam, Weld, CDI, Rails, Rack, Symfony, Zend Framework, Twisted, Django and Java EE, and the PaaS includes both SQL and NoSQL data stores and a distributed file system. There are also plans to support Java EE 6.
"Developers turn to open source for innovation and choice. With OpenShift, we deliver the first Platform-as-a-Service that meets those needs," said Brian Stevens, vice president, Engineering and CTO at Red Hat. "By providing the broadest platform and choice of languages, frameworks and supported cloud providers, OpenShift gives developers the cloud destination they've been dreaming of."
There are three application deployment services offered as part of OpenShift; Express (platform for Ruby, PHP and Python applications) Flex (Java EE and PHP) and Power (for apps that are written to Linux, and anything that builds on Linux.)AWS accounts are required for OpenShift Flex.
