I’m happy to announce that Red Hat Fuse 7.0 is now officially available! This is major new release which focused on expanding support for distributed hybrid integration deployments. Fuse now comes in 3 distributions:
- Fuse Standalone. Run integrations in your choice of JVM platform: OSGi, JEE, or Spring Boot. This is an evolution of what was provided in Fuse 6.3. In addition to the new Spring Boot support, major Fuse building blocks like Apache Camel, Apache CXF, Undertow, etc. received big version bumps and version alignment across all the support JVM platforms. You also now get feature parity in terms of Camel component support across those platforms.
- Fuse on OpenShift. Builds on the foundations of Fuse Standalone, but gives you the tooling and base images to run your integrations in cloud native way on OpenShift. OpenShift gives you the foundation you need to run robust scale out clusters of integration services and automate it all using CI/CD. Since OpenShift runs in your datacenter or in any cloud datacenter, it’s the easy way to build the abstraction need to do hybrid cloud deployments.
- Fuse Online. Building on the foundations of Fuse on OpenShift, Fuse Online provides a new web based UI allows a for a no-code/low-code way to develop integrations. Business users can now self-serve to implement simple integrations without needing to wait for developers to implement their use cases. Yet, it allows developers to plug in and expand the functionality available to those business users. This allows business managers and analysts to collaborate more effectively with their development teams.
This new Fuse allows you have even more agile integration development. Fuse installations can span online, on-premise, or container based environments without reducing functionality. This allows an integration platform that crosses environments, and be as lightweight and decentralized as an individual development team or an enterprise-wide platform. You can more importantly run your integrations where it makes most business sense and controlled by different groups yet managed and operated in a common way.
Additionally, Fuse 7 contains these new features:
- 50 new application connectors (with a total of over 200 included connectors)
- A new monitoring subsystem
- A new name (Red Hat Fuse, rather than Red Hat JBoss Fuse)
