RedHat's new acquisition aims to help improve JBoss Middleware and OpenShift. Even more, Codenvy will become a part of the hybrid cloud services platform OpenShift.io. The financial details have not been disclosed.

The Linux world might seem quiet, but everything is moving, especially when cloud applications are involved. RedHat has just announced a new corporate acquisition, the target of this operation being Codenvy, a company known for its cloud-native development tools that provide the means to create modern cloud-native and container-based apps.

Codenvy founder and CEO Tyler Jewell say that "Our container-based approach to development aligns with Red Hat’s focus on improving security features, reliability and performance in its container offerings. Joining Red Hat opens up opportunities to expand our reach among developers, giving them modern tools to build containerized apps from within their Web browser."

Founded back in 2013, Codenvy has 40 employees, and its IDE offering is the first enterprise product based on Eclipse Che. Codenvy provides a cloud tool for developers that allows multiple individuals to collaborate in the same workspace. Codenvy and RedHat have been working together for a while already.

As it usually happens in such situations, the financial terms of the deal have not been revealed to the public.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
