Developers looking to build applications with SAP database solutions now have access to components of the SAP® Data Management portfolio in OpenShift. The mobile data management cartridge for the SAP SQL Anywhere suite, available to developers for free, makes it easier for developers creating database applications in OpenShift to extend their data to remote and mobile applications, and keep it synchronized.
Using the OpenShift Cartridge API, the cartridge for SAP SQL Anywhere enables developers to quickly "snap-in" a pre-configured, ready-to-develop cartridge for synchronizing MySQL-based applications. This means more rapid development of applications that require fast, scalable and reliable online/offline data synchronization of mobile devices and remote offices to a central server database.
SAP SQL Anywhere is a comprehensive suite of solutions that provides data management and synchronization technologies that enable the rapid development and deployment of database-powered applications in embedded, SaaS, remote and mobile environments.
The combination of OpenShift by Red Hat and SAP SQL Anywhere delivers developers a flexible, choice-driven solution that is capable of handling large amounts of data. OpenShift automates the provisioning management and scaling of the application, while the self-administering, self-tuning, self-healing and synchronization support features of SAP SQL Anywhere make it well-suited for zero-administration environments.
Developers want technologies and solutions that help them do their jobs better, faster. Developing apps in OpenShift using the mobile data management cartridge for SAP SQL Anywhere lets developers do this, while taking advantage of key SAP database technologies and scaling to the needs of the application from small scale through enterprise-class.”
Developers can access SAP’s cartridge and mobile data management component through github.
