IBM’s software portfolio is now cloud-native and optimised to run on Red Hat OpenShift.
Enterprises can now build mission-critical applications once and run them on all leading public clouds, including AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, Alibaba and IBM Cloud and on private clouds.
The new cloud-native capabilities will be delivered as pre-integrated solutions called IBM Cloud Paks. The IBM-certified and containerised software will provide a common operating model and common set of services –- including identity management, security, monitoring and logging –- and are designed to improve visibility and control across clouds together with a unified and intuitive dashboard.
Also, IBM unveiled a flexible, fully-managed service of OpenShift on IBM’s public cloud -– deployable in one-click with automated resiliency, data compliance, and security -– to help enterprises modernise and migrate to a hybrid cloud infrastructure.
In addition, IBM will bring Red Hat OpenShift to their enterprise systems, IBM Z and LinuxONE, which collectively power more than 30 billion transactions a day globally.
Further, new IBM services delivered by one of the world’s largest teams of Red Hat certified-consultants and more than 80,000 cloud application services practitioners to help clients advise, move, build, and manage their workloads to cloud environments.
These software and services, which include more than 100 products from across IBM’s expansive software portfolio optimised to run on Red Hat OpenShift, will be delivered on IBM’s hybrid multicloud platform.
The platform is built on open source technologies, including Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux, the world’s leading enterprise Linux platform.
As a result, clients can select the best architecture and approach to address the most critical application, data and workload requirements for their business.
“IBM is unleashing its software from the data centre to fuel the enterprise workload race to the cloud,” said Arvind Krishna, SVP for cloud and cognitive software at IBM. “We are providing the essential tools enterprises need to make their multi-year journey to cloud on common, open standards that can reach across clouds, across applications and across vendors with Red Hat.”
