We are very happy to announce the availability of official guidance for running JBoss EAP on Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO). The guidance is delivered through an ongoing collaboration between Red Hat and Microsoft to fully enable JBoss EAP on Azure. Developed alongside Red Hat, the guidance utilizes the JBoss EAP Helm Charts and provides step-by-step instructions for running JBoss EAP on an ARO cluster. The guidance is intended to make it as easy as possible to get started with production ready deployments utilizing best practices from both Red Hat and Microsoft. Evaluate the guidance for full production usage and reach out to collaborate on migration cases.
Solution Details and Roadmap
JBoss EAP powers some of the most mission-critical enterprise applications worldwide. JBoss EAP is a key component in enabling enterprise Java workloads on Azure. ARO is a fully managed OpenShift service jointly developed, run, and supported by Microsoft and Red Hat.
