Iron.io Joins Red Hat’s OpenShift Marketplace


The OpenShift Marketplace

Iron.io is pleased to announce its IronMQ and IronWorker solutions are part of the OpenShift Marketplace. The marketplace is an important component to Red Hat’s OpenShift Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) in that it lets developers combine the benefits of enterprise PaaS with tightly integrated, complementary solutions – all without losing time on technology integration.

Iron.io provides an enterprise grade message queuing and task processing platform. It makes it easy to connect systems, handle event processing, and perform highly concurrent task processing. IronMQ is a message queue written in Go that provides full features such as push queues, error queues, retries, and alerts along with high availability, guaranteed one-time delivery, message persistence, and multi-zone redundancy.

IronWorker is a scalable task queue / worker service that provides an easy and reliable way to process workloads asynchronously across thousands of cores. Tasks can be queued directly from web and mobile apps, triggered via webhooks, scheduled to run later, or run continuously in the background. IronWorker supports all common languages including binary packages, offers task retries, and sophisticated task monitoring.

“The OpenShift platform is an important development for Iron.io. The combination of Red Hat’s public cloud and on-premise options along with this new marketplace is a powerful offering and directly in line with our deployment options. Deploying our platform as a cartridge leverages the flexibility and security of OpenShift to give developers powerful ways to build applications.”
– Chad Arimura, CEO, Iron.io
