RALEIGH, N.C.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Red Hat, Inc. (NYSE: RHT), the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that OpenShift by Red Hat, the company’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, has received InfoWorld’s 2015 Technology of the Year award. The annual awards identify the best and most innovative products in the IT landscape, selected by IDG’s InfoWorld Test Center editors and reviewers. Winners are drawn from all of the products tested by InfoWorld during the past year. OpenShift was the only PaaS offering – and one of the only open source offerings – to receive the award, emerging as the top PaaS offering in InfoWorld’s testing. InfoWorld lauded OpenShift for its ability to support high application densities and standard continuous integration.
Red Hat is among the only technology vendors to offer a full family of open PaaS solutions: OpenShift Origin, the open source PaaS project; OpenShift Online, a commercial public PaaS offering; and OpenShift Enterprise, an on-premise private PaaS product. OpenShift delivers to developers a cloud application platform with a choice of programming languages, frameworks and application lifecycle tools to build and run their applications. The platform provides built-in support for Node.js, Ruby, Python, PHP, Perl, and Java and the capability for developers to add their own languages. OpenShift also supports many popular frameworks, including Java EE, Spring, Play and Rails.
The InfoWorld Technology of the Year award is the latest of several recent awards for OpenShift. Red Hat’s PaaS offering received two Best of Open Source Software Awards in late 2014, honoring the best open source application development tools and best open source datacenter and cloud software. OpenShift also won the 2014 SIIA CODiE Best Cloud Platform-as-a-Service award and the 2014 American Technology Awards.
Ashesh Badani, vice president and general manager, OpenShift, Red Hat
