A closer look at Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud and the unified, open, hybrid cloud platform this partnership brings
Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud combines the management, reliability and security-rich capabilities of IBM Cloud with the speed, productivity and automated operations of the Red Hat OpenShift Kubernetes platform.
Check out this video where I explain how Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud will enable you to build and deploy container-based applications with speed and scale on a fully managed, integrated, and reliable platform.
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.
