Acquisition Helps Red Hat Move Ahead with Technology to Deploy, Manage and auto-scale Applications in The Cloud

Red Hat today announced that it has acquired Makara, a Redwood City, California based developer of deployment and management solutions for applications in the cloud.

Makara provides solutions to help organizations deploy, manage, monitor and scale their applications on both private or public clouds. By integrating the JBoss Enterprise Middleware infrastructure with Makara’s Cloud Application Platform, Red Hat will be able to offer a PaaS solution that allows organizations to quickly transition their applications to both public and private clouds with minimal modifications.

Red Hat Acquisitions

Makara’s technologies will accelerate the development of Red Hat’s comprehensive Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution as part of its Cloud Foundations portfolio which Red Hat introduced in June.

Red Hat is in a unique position as the only vendor that has the infrastructure needed to deliver a complete, open source, flexible cloud stack, incorporating operating system, middleware and virtualization. Based on JBoss Enterprise Middleware, Red Hat PaaS seeks to be the solution within the portfolio that will allow enterprises, cloud service providers, ISVs and Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) providers to take existing assets and develop new applications and deploy them to a wide range of public and private clouds. With Red Hat, enterprises, cloud service providers, ISVs and SaaS providers can leverage their existing skills without rewriting applications.

Red Hat plans to make Red Hat PaaS available as software offered as a service in public or private clouds to help developers and organizations build, deploy and manage the entire life cycle of applications. Makara’s tools, technologies and solutions will be fully integrated with Red Hat PaaS, as part of the Cloud Foundations portfolio.

Enterprises can begin to deploy JBoss Enterprise Middleware in private clouds by leveraging Red Hat Consulting in conjunction with products and services from Red Hat partners. Red Hat offers a suite of products and services across the entire application lifecycle designed to cost-effectively transition existing or new applications to both private and public clouds.
