Default settings are enough to handle most requirements, but needs more flexibility

What is our primary use case?

We have our web server, our app server, and our database installed using the Red Hat OS.

Pros and Cons

  • "The installation is quite okay. We don't really change much in the configuration. Most of the time, most of the settings remain with the default and we are able to handle our needs using the default setting."
  • "Currently, the main point of concern for us is how flexible it is to cater to different requirements. It should be more flexible."

What other advice do I have?

Actually, we are doing R&D on Red Hat Fuse. We are looking to move some of our application framework to use Red Hat Fuse. But we haven't decide yet. It's still in the decision stage. On a scale of one to ten, based on our earlier Proof of Concept, I would give Red Hat Fuse a seven. Because the Proof of Concept was done two years ago we are now going to resume again and we are now at the decision making point. We still find that we need some customization in order to meet our clients' needs. Even if it is more compliant, there are still some customizations required in order to meet our clients'…

Red Hat Fuse could be considered a simple, robust and scalable ESB solution.

What is our primary use case?

We used RH Fuse solution for some integration between the new ERP system to our local legacies systems. We take messages from MQ and then call a local API or leave a transformed file for a legacy system, and viceversa. That has allowed us to reduce legacy system adaptation efforts.

Pros and Cons

  • "We usually had used PowerCenter for master data integration (by replication). But in some cases, it was better to use Fuse for providing the master data online. It doesn't make it necessary to replicate data."
  • "I don't know the product last versions. I know they are migrating a microservices concepts. We still didn't get there... but we are in the process."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend Fuse. I don't think any other ESB tool makes big difference from Fuse. Many of this tools have the same problem: to publish and secure an internal service. Many tools bring other solutions to they ecosystems in order to extend to an API Gateway/Management functionality. You could reach the same adding others Red Hat tools.

Performs well, offers a good software development environment, and stability is a strong point

What is our primary use case?

We are a solution provider and Red Hat Fuse is one of the products that we have experience working with.

Pros and Cons

  • "The most valuable feature is the software development environment."
  • "Our clients would like to see the user interface improved so that it is more user-friendly."

What other advice do I have?

I would recommend it to people because it is very good for starting with an ESB project. Depending on the size of the installation, it may not be necessary to use another tool. I would suggest starting with the documentation to see if it meets the requirements. I think that doing a proof of concept is a good idea because you will get a real perception of what the tool offers. Another thing that I suggest is to try and find the connector that you want to use and make sure that it is supported by Red Hat or another company. Overall, I think that this is a good tool. It is very versatile…

A solution offering easy setup and fast deployment with an ability to scale quickly

What is our primary use case?

I am using Red Hat Fuse to implement microservices.

Pros and Cons

  • "The solution is stable. We have gone for months or years without any issue. There are no memory restarts, so from my point of view, it's very stable."
  • "The pricing model could be adjusted. The price should be lower."

What other advice do I have?

We are using the private cloud deployment model with Openshift as the provider. I would advise those considering implementation to play with the framework. If you try to understand the philosophy behind the framework it will make it easy to use. I would rate the solution ten out of ten.
