New OpenShift Integration continuously monitors addition of open source components, analyzes licenses risks and requirements, and automates the review and approval workflow.
WhiteSource, the leading provider of SaaS Open Source Lifecycle Management solutions, announced today the release of a new integration with OpenShift by Red Hat. The new integration enables software developers to automatically detect the addition of a new open source component, automate the decision process according to the customer’s open source software (OSS) policies, and keep their OSS inventory up to date. WhiteSource Open Source Lifecycle Management allows customers to increase productivity, while mitigating legal, business, and technical risks. The integration adds to the recently released Maven integration, and the open source JNinka scanner, providing companies of all sizes with the most convenient and cost-effective solution to address their open source license management needs.
WhiteSource provides a comprehensive, yet simple to use, and very affordable solution for companies that need to manage their open source assets and ensure license compliance in order to avoid pitfalls such as lawsuits, penalties and lost business. Developers and managers use WhiteSource’s free cloud-based solution to track, audit and report on open source components throughout the software development lifecycle.
OpenShift is Red Hat’s Cloud Computing Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering. OpenShift is an application platform in the cloud where application developers and teams can build, test, deploy, and run their applications. OpenShift takes care of all the infrastructure, middleware, and management and allows the developer to focus on designing and coding applications.
The OpenShift platform has made its mark on the PaaS industry over the past year, by offering comprehensive lifecycle support for Java in the cloud. The new Integration strengths this Java support and enables OpenShift users to also easily and automatically manage their open source components using WhiteSource service – without any overhead.
“RedHat’s OpenShift is an exemplary and obvious integration for WhiteSource. It is a leading platform, used by top organizations worldwide. The new integration enables OpenShift users to reduce the OSS reporting burden from developers, by automatically and continuously monitoring newly added open source components,” said WhiteSource CEO Rami Sass.
