Red Hat has announced the general availability of Red Hat Developer Hub, an internal developer platform based on Backstage, an open source Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project.

The hub includes a self-service portal, standardized software templates, dynamic plug-in management, enterprise role based access control (RBAC) and premium support.


Red Hat says the hub can be used by organizations wanting to make use of the open hybrid cloud as it is integrated with Red Hat OpenShift so includes artificial intelligence (AI) and cloud native application architectures. The integration includes the provision of OpenShift operators and access to technologies for application development such as service nesh, serverless, GitOps, and distributed tracing.

The self-service portal aims to provide all the information that developers need, including access to various consoles, a unified software catalog, and up-to-date documentation within the same repository.

The hub uses the same plug-in architecture as the Backstage project, meaning users can install, update and remove plug-ins without having to plan for downtime to modify source code, and rebuild and redeploy the base Backstage environment. red Hat says technologies such as Tekton, GitOps, Ansible, Nexus Repository, and JFrog Artifactory can be integrated directly into Red Hat Developer Hub, and Red Hat supported and verified plug-ins can be used to extend the hub environment into your configuration. 

The hub provides standardized software templates that Red Hat says abstract ancillary tasks and technology details that can slow down the development and delivery process:

"With the click of a button, developers can get everything they need — best practices and pre-architected components from platform engineering teams — automatically built and ready to go so they can immediately start creating and delivering applications."

In practical terms, the templates are designed to streamline the process of creating new resources, such as websites and applications, giving you the ability to load code skeletons, insert variables, and publish the template to a repository like GitHub or GitLab. The templates can also be used with Red Hat OpenShift, whether running on-premises, in the public cloud, or at the edge. 

Red Hat Developer Hub is available now.
