Overview

With container services from IBM, built on open source technologies like Kubernetes, you can facilitate and accelerate your journey to the cloud in a fast and safe way. Use the IBM Cloud Continuous Delivery service to build and deploy your containerized applications in the cloud. Orchestrate your containers with Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud or IBM Cloud® Kubernetes service. Use IBM Cloud Satellite to build apps and run them on premises, at the edge, or across multiple Cloud vendors. Or use IBM Cloud® Code Engine, a fully managed, serverless platform, to focus on writing code, not managing infrastructure. IBM Cloud has the container solution to meet your needs.

Five years ago, safety and scalability were an excuse banks used to avoid talking to companies like us. Today, they are the reason they want to work with us. Matthieu M. Job CEO, Circeo Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud customer
