Red Hat ventures into mobile app dev with FeedHenry buy
See the original posting on JavaWorld
FeedHenry must be doing something right. The Node.js-based, enterprise-centric MBaaS (mobile back end as a service) and mobile app development platform, which launched in 2010, now has a buyer: Red Hat.
In a press release issued this morning, Red Hat noted FeedHenry’s app development system is “aligned with Red Hats open hybrid cloud strategy.” Specifically, Red Hat bills FeedHenry as an addition to its JBoss xPaaS for OpenShift strategy, designed to create a broad platform for mobile work. But Red Hat has lacked a product of its own to support mobile application development, an area FeedHenry addresses without a lot of overlap with other Red Hat products or services.
