Red Hat Announces Red Hat Service Interconnect

Infrastructure and cloud-agnostic application connectivity solution addresses complexity while increasing developer velocity and satisfaction, supporting customers throughout their hybrid and multi-cloud journeys

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, today announced Red Hat Service Interconnect, simplifying application connectivity and security across platforms, clusters and clouds. Based on the open source project, Skupper.io, Red Hat Service Interconnect empowers developers to more seamlessly create trusted connections between services, applications and workloads across environments without requiring complex network reconfigurations or elevated security privileges.

According to industry analyst firm, IDC, “By 2025, 75% of organizations will favor technology partners that can provide a consistent application deployment experience across cloud, edge, and dedicated environments.”1 Application architectures are evolving to take advantage of the open hybrid cloud, increasing the need for agile, compliant connectivity at the application layer. Distributed workloads, such as AI/ML applications, can span across on-premises, edge and cloud environments, while line-of-business applications increasingly need to connect to services and data across multiple clouds and infrastructure environments. Developer productivity and innovation velocity are hindered by the coordination required between developers, network administrators and security administrators to implement complex network changes that are needed for trusted connectivity on a per-application basis.

Multi-cluster, multi-cloud, multi-platform
Red Hat Service Interconnect helps solve cross-platform and multi-cloud communication challenges by enabling developers to add trusted, resilient connectivity between applications running on any Kubernetes cluster, virtual machine or bare-metal host. These connections can stretch across any infrastructure environment, from on-premises datacenters to the edge and public cloud. As a result, developer teams can more quickly connect applications without needing elevated privileges or advanced networking skills, resulting in increased application development velocity while maintaining compliance with security requirements.

Customers seeking to modernize existing applications to cloud-native architectures, or migrate their applications across infrastructure platforms or between cloud providers can use Red Hat Service Interconnect as part of their hybrid and multi-cloud strategies. Red Hat Service Interconnect reduces application downtime by allowing application connections to be migrated transparently between source and destination platforms, enabling centralized compliance and risk management while creating operational efficiencies for application and network teams.

Customers, including Australia and New Zealand Banking Group (ANZ Bank), are already taking advantage of Red Hat Service Interconnect to accelerate the modernization of existing applications to cloud-native architectures. ANZ Bank used Red Hat Service Interconnect to connect applications more securely across environments, enabling developer teams to move them as they were ready without needing elevated privileges or dependencies on network operations. This resulted in a streamlined migration to the latest version of OpenShift and improved developer experience with minimal customer disruption.
