There were several key announcements at the last JBoss World, including EAP 6, BRMS 5.3, SOA-P 5.3/EDS 5.3, JDG and Openshift. The next Southern California JBoss Users Group will concentrate on Openshift, Although Openshift has been free to use for Developers since May 2011, the JBoss World announcement included information on FreeShift and Megashift, MegaShift is the paid offering
In addition, when building an on-premise solution for Platform as a Service(PaaS), 3 flexible management offerings will be available:
ITOps - Let developers have the benefits of self-service PaaS while IT retains control for governance and compliance in a Private or Hybrid Cloud.
DevOps - Let developers have more control with a fully automated self-service PaaS in a Private or Hybrid Cloud.
Hosted - Let developers use OpenShift.com in the Public Cloud to build and deploy their apps.
Both the hosted and on-premise solutions will be discussed as well as the open source of the Openshift components released earlier this year as Openshift Origin
