Red Hat has announced advancements to its JBoss Enterprise Application Platform (JBoss EAP) on Microsoft Azure, including new consumption models and clustering features.

JBoss EAP on Microsoft Azure allows customers to modernize and deliver existing Jakarta EE applications and build new ones with greater speed and efficiency on a fully-managed cloud platform. It also gives customers the ability to choose what level of control and assistance they need.

In addition, JBoss EAP is now available as the first fully pay-as-you-go Red Hat offering for application services publicly available in Azure Marketplace. IT organizations can leverage this offering to easily produce Red Hat solutions through Azure Marketplace, without an existing Red Hat subscription. This helps to reduce costs and expand capabilities while maximizing existing investments. The model provides users with an easier way to move existing applications to the cloud while retaining support from Red Hat for product updates, upgrades and servicing.

The addition of clustering to JBoss EAP on Azure App Service is designed to increase performance and the availability for shared loads, making Red Hat solutions more consumable on the cloud.

Blake Shiver, vice president, cloud partners, Red Hat, said: “Customers are continuing to seek simpler ways to enhance application performance and operate at scale in any cloud environment. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform on Azure offers just that – flexible, more secure options, on a managed platform. We remain committed to investing in and growing our partnership with Microsoft to deliver cost-effective solutions that support our customers throughout their cloud journeys.”

Scott Hunter, vice president of product, Azure Developer, Microsoft, said: “Many organizations have shifted to a cloud-first approach to simplify overhead and enable faster innovation while improving the bottom line. JBoss Enterprise Application Platform is a modern solution built to drive business value, that when combined with Microsoft Azure’s Infrastructure and managed offerings like App Service, empowers customers to take advantage of the cloud and optimize their technology investments in a way that best fits their needs.”
