What is Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud?

Hi everyone, my name is Sai Vennam, and I’m with the IBM Cloud team.

Today, let’s talk about Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud.

What is OpenShift?

First, we’ll introduce OpenShift. OpenShift is an open source application platform based on Kubernetes and container technology. It focuses on making the Kubernetes experience easier for developers as well as operations teams.

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud

Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud allows you to focus on managing and developing your application. Let us take care of the heavy lifting with the infrastructure, allowing you to create a highly available and managed OpenShift cluster with the click of a button.

OpenShift and IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service

Together, OpenShift and IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service is a perfect match—providing you an industry-leading developer experience.

For one, you will get automated provisioning, updates and patching, as well as 24/7 global support.

Currently, we manage over 14,000 production clusters in IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service.

Resiliency and security

In addition, you get resiliency and security across the board. Take advantage of highly available masters to administer your clusters and use options for dedicated compute and bare metal.

With multizone regions, you get stability across data centers, further enhancing your HA story.

On the security front, you get compliance out of the box for things like HIPAA and GDPR.

IBM and Red Hat middleware

Finally, you get push-button integrations with the entire suite of IBM and Red Hat middleware. Build beyond those basics and start taking advantage of high-value services, like AI and hyperledger capabilities.

The unified Red Hat and IBM Cloud platform 

With Red Hat and IBM together, we’re building out a unified, open, hybrid cloud platform. Whether you’re running on-prem or in the cloud, taking advantage of Kubernetes, OpenShift, serverless, or CF technology, IBM Cloud is unifying these choices and bringing them under one management platform powered by open container technologies.

With the unified Red Hat and IBM Cloud platform, start planning out your open hybrid cloud strategy today.

Enhance your data security posture with a no-code approach to application-level encryption

4 min read - Data is the lifeblood of every organization. As your organization’s data footprint expands across the clouds and between your own business lines to drive value, it is essential to secure data at all stages of the cloud adoption and throughout the data lifecycle. While there are different mechanisms available to encrypt data throughout its lifecycle (in transit, at rest and in use), application-level encryption (ALE) provides an additional layer of protection by encrypting data at its source. ALE can enhance…

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…
