Overview

Red Hat-IBM named the leader in multicloud container development

Containers are ideal for application modernization and hybrid, multicloud scenarios because they’re lightweight and portable. With IBM container services, built on open source technologies like Kubernetes, you can facilitate and accelerate your journey to the cloud. Use continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools to build and deploy your containerized applications in the cloud. Orchestrate your containers with a managed Red Hat OpenShift or Kubernetes service. Address most of your transformation needs with containerized IBM middleware and open source components found in our IBM Cloud Pak solutions.
