Beyond containers and Kubernetes, enterprises need to orchestrate their production topology, as well as implement management, security and governance in their applications. IBM Cloud Paksare IBM-certified, enterprise-ready, containerized, preintegrated software solutions that give clients an open, faster and more secure way to build, move and manage core business applications on any cloud.
Run anywhere: portable, running on-premises, on public clouds (including IBM Cloud, AWS, Azure, Google), or in two new, pre-integrated systems
Are open and secure: IBM certified, up-to-date software that secures the entire stack, from hardware to applications
Are flexible and consumable: delivered as packaged use cases to build, move and manage, easy to consume, and you only pay for what you use, when you use it
In the video below, you can learn more about the ideas behind IBM Cloud Paks and how they can help businesses to go into “chapter 2” of their digital journey:
The Five IBM Cloud Paks
Each Cloud Pak includes a Red Hat OpenShift container platform, IBM certified containerized software and open source components, and common software services for development and management, on top of a common integration layer – designed to reduce development time by up to 84% and operational expenses by up to 75%.
#1 IBM Cloud Pak for Applications
Helps to accelerate the build of cloud-native apps by leveraging built-in developer tools and processes, including support for microservices functions and serverless computing. Customers can quickly build apps on any cloud, while existing IBM middleware clients gain the most straightforward path to modernization.
Helps to unify and simplify the collection, organization and analysis of data. Enterprises can turn data into insights through an integrated cloud-native architecture. IBM Cloud Pak for Data is extensible, easily customized to unique client data and AI landscapes through an integrated catalog of IBM, open source and third-party microservices add-ons.
Helps support the speed, flexibility, security and scale required for all of your integration and digital transformation initiatives, and comes pre-integrated with a set of capabilities including API lifecycle, application and data integration, messaging and events, high speed transfer and integration security.
Helps you deploy on your choice of clouds, with low-code tools for business users and real-time performance visibility for business managers. Customers can migrate their automation runtimes without application changes or data migration, and automate at scale without vendor lock-in.
Helps to provide consistent visibility, automation, and governance across a range of hybrid, multicloud management capabilities such as event management, infrastructure management, application management, multicluster management, edge management and integration with existing tools and processes.
At IBM we are looking very much forward to help bringing our clients into chapter 2 of their digital journey. IBM Cloud Paks is a major step towards making that process easier for everyone involved. We hope you are as excited as we are!
