Ecosystem partnerships are a cornerstone of IBM’s growth strategy. More importantly, partnerships are an essential means of delivering IBM’s incremental value to customers on their Hybrid Cloud and application modernization journeys. 

In December of 2021, IBM and MuleSoft shared a vision of expanded partnership by bringing together Red Hat OpenShift, the industry’s leading enterprise Kubernetes platform, and MuleSoft, the world’s leading Integration and API management platform. We are making good on that promise, and more. 

Today, MuleSoft’s Anypoint Runtime Fabric (RTF) is now fully certified to run on Red Hat OpenShift. For organizations choosing Red Hat OpenShift for containerized platform orchestration, they can now run MuleSoft RTF on AWS, Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or IBM Cloud alongside on premises or bare metal deployments. 

For clients wishing to run MuleSoft on-premises, they can do so seamlessly with IBM Spectrum® Fusion HCI, a hyper-converged infrastructure platform built from the ground up to deliver an industry-leading set of highly scalable, robust, and enterprise-hardened OpenShift data services. 

“MuleSoft advances IBM Consulting clients’ application modernization, middleware integration and digital transformation across the hybrid cloud estate on-premise or any cloud platform,” said Shai Joshi, Managing Partner and Growth Platform Leader, IBM Global Hybrid Cloud Services. “You can’t achieve digital transformation without reliable access to data and transactional capabilities of back-end systems in a unified manner to deliver on that promise.” 

IBM Consulting has developed several hybrid cloud journeys to dramatically accelerate the migration of existing MuleSoft clients to Anypoint RTF on Red Hat OpenShift.  

“Our customers want real-time information to enable digital experiences,” said Dan McAllister, SVP Global Alliances & Channels at MuleSoft. “MuleSoft’s certification of Red Hat OpenShift provides our customers more choices than ever before to deploy RunTime Fabric faster and with less management overhead.” 

Adding the general availability of MuleSoft on OpenShift makes our partnership even stronger.  

This brings together the best of IBM’s Hybrid Cloud Strategy with our Strategic Partner, Salesforce.

The history of the central processing unit (CPU)

10 min read - The central processing unit (CPU) is the computer’s brain. It handles the assignment and processing of tasks, in addition to functions that make a computer run. There’s no way to overstate the importance of the CPU to computing. Virtually all computer systems contain, at the least, some type of basic CPU. Regardless of whether they’re used in personal computers (PCs), laptops, tablets, smartphones or even in supercomputers whose output is so strong it must be measured in floating-point operations per…
