More Value-Add for OpenShift
Lots of news coming out of the virtual Red Hat Summit this week.
TriggerMesh, a cloud native integration platform provider built on Kubernetes, announced that it has received the official Red Hat OpenShift Operator Certification, bringing Amazon EventBridge-like functionality to the OpenShift ecosystem.
“TriggerMesh is effectively breaking the silo from the cloud to the enterprise,” said TriggerMesh co-founder and Head of Product Sebastien Goasguen, who will be a guest on The New Stack Context podcast this Friday.
With this integration, the company’s cloud native integration platform allows for workloads on the Red Hat OpenShift ecosystem to be executed when events happen in the data center, or out on the cloud. This could allow legacy systems and the public cloud to interact seamlessly.
Security company Snyk also brought some new value to Red Hat’s enterprise Kubernetes platform. Snyk has expanded its DevOps vulnerability scanning and fixing tooling to support both OpenShift as well as the company’s CodeReady toolset for developers.
“The code and containers running on OpenShift can come from anywhere, especially when you pull in open source components and container base images from public registries,” Jim Armstrong, Snyk’s product marketing director for container security, told The New Stack. “Developers are ultimately tasked with fixing security issues in all these layers, so Snyk and Red Hat’s integration of developer-focused security fixes built-in to developer tools and the leading enterprise Kubernetes platform make it easy.”
Red Hat itself had some news as well, with the newly released OpenShift 4.4. Red Hat added OpenShift Serverless, a serverless offering based on Knative that was also introduced in preview last year. The feature allows developers to use any language or runtime to build their applications, as they are then packaged into standard containers and launched in normal Kubernetes pods across any hybrid infrastructure.
