Cloud9 IDE Builds Online Development Environment with Red Hat OpenShift

Red Hat, Inc., the world's leading provider of open source solutions, today announced that Cloud9 IDE has built its online development environment with Red Hat's OpenShift Online hosted Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) solution. By integrating OpenShift Online into its original online development environment, Cloud9 IDE is able to deliver more flexibility, security and ease of use to developers.

Cloud9 IDE is an online development environment for Javascript and Node.js applications as well as HTML, CSS, PHP, Java, Ruby and 23 other languages. It is designed for developers looking for a modern and secure IDE that strives to work efficiently by having their code accessible online from anywhere via Cloud9 IDE workspaces. Launched in March 2011, Cloud9 IDE quickly took steps to expand the functionality it initially offered developers with its online environment, hoping to offer a user workflow with the ability to develop and deploy runtime code from the same online platform on which it had been developed. Cloud9 IDE hoped to give developers a more robust offering, combining editing tools and the runtime environment into a single platform, all within the cloud.

Looking to collaborate with another leading vendor to enhance its platform, Cloud9 IDE selected Red Hat for its OpenShift Online offering. One of the many reasons it selected OpenShift Online was for the inherent security provided through the PaaS solution's inclusion of Red Hat Enterprise Linux. Today, by leveraging OpenShift Online containers, Cloud9 IDE workspaces provide developers with a single online place to store, run and configure their files, all while offering a full terminal and full shell access into the container. While inside a workspace, a user can access Cloud9 IDE and complete the same functions that can be done on a desktop or laptop machine. In addition to security, the switch to OpenShift Online provides a cost-efficiency benefit as it offers a multi-tenant model where multiple workspaces run on the same virtual machine.

The combination of Cloud9 IDE and OpenShift Online also allows users to run executables, including binary models, Node.js support, Ruby, PHP and C++ applications. This flexibility has allowed many to benefit from using Cloud9 IDE in their infrastructure, including startups, independent software vendors and freelance developers. Working with a variety of users has allowed Cloud9 IDE to explore the next phase of offerings within a private cloud.
