Db2 on Red Hat OpenShift

Db2® can be deployed in a Red Hat OpenShift cluster as a containerized micro-service, or pod, managed by Kubernetes.

Note: While it is possible to deploy the containerized version of Db2 on other Kubernetes-managed container platforms, the documentation focuses on the Red Hat OpenShift deployment.

You deploy Db2 to your OpenShift cluster through a series of API calls to the Db2 Operator. The table below lists the Db2 Operators that have been released in the version 1.x, 2.x, and 3.0 channels, and their supported Db2 versions for deployment on OpenShift.
