Deploy and scale workloads across the globe

Workloads on Red Hat® OpenShift® on IBM Cloud® can take advantage of toolchains for rapid app updates, which help improve microservice time to delivery and multiregion deployments across the globe. These workloads can be hosted near the physical devices they gather data from. At the same time, these workloads can connect to existing back-end systems; use IBM Watson® AI for customer personalization; and access real-time IOT data to optimize operations, improve asset performance management and reduce global logistics costs.

Real world example

Shipping company increases availability of worldwide systems for business partner ecosystem

Problem: An IT exec has worldwide shipping, routing and scheduling systems that partners use to interact with. Partners require up-to-the-minute information from these systems that access IoT device data. But legacy systems were unable to scale across the globe with sufficient high availability (HA).

Solution: Red Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud scales containerized apps with five nines of availability to meet growing demands. App deployments occur 40 times daily when developers experiment, easily pushing changes to development and test systems quickly.

Solution architecture

Solution architecture details

Use containers & microservices to decompose legacy apps into portable workloads. Offload tedious & repetitive tasks around security, compliance, deployment, and on-going lifecycle management to Red
Hat OpenShift on IBM Cloud.

With IBM Cloud Satellite, extend these workloads into on-prem, edge, or multi-cloud environments. In each Satellite “location,” managed openshift clusters ensure high availability through CI/CD, and real-time
data through eventing.

Customers, suppliers, and operators can now access up to date business reporting; developers can funnel 100x updates daily to maintain reliability, while adding and testing new features.
