Chapter 1. OpenShift Enterprise

Abstract

This section explains how to get started in the cloud with OpenShift Enterprise and Red Hat JBoss Fuse.

1.1. Overview

Basic technologies

This OpenShift Enterprise tutorial is based on the following technology stack:
  • OpenShift Platform as a Service (PaaS). Red Hat's OpenShift PaaS provides developers with the capability to develop, host, and scale applications in a cloud environment. You can choose a public, private, or hybrid cloud environment. In this tutorial we use OpenShift Enterprise to deploy JBoss Fuse.
  • Red Hat JBoss Fuse 6.1. In this tutorial we use version 6.1 of JBoss Fuse.

OpenShift applications

OpenShift is an open source PaaS that enables you to develop, deploy and host applications in a cloud environment. Before you build an application, you create a cartridge that hosts your application code and dependencies. You can choose a QuickStart cartridge, upload your own source code, or link to source code from a public repository.
The default JBoss Fuse cartridge hosts the JBoss Fuse application and runs the Fuse Management Console container. Each additional container that you create in JBoss Fuse appears as an application on the OpenShift Applications page.

Fuse Management Console

After you create the JBoss Fuse cartridge, you receive a URL based on the OpenShift application information that you provided. Use this URL to open the Fuse Management Console. The management console shows information about all containers, fabrics, and dependencies for the JBoss Fuse cartridge.
