Run Linux, containers and Kubernetes on LinuxONE

Cloud-native development simplifies life for your developers as they build new applications and modernize existing ones. IBM LinuxONE supports private and public cloud via Linux, containers, Kubernetes and industry-standard tools. Now, with the direction for Red Hat OpenShift support, IBM LinuxONE III will add to your options for cloud agility and integration.

According to an IBM sponsored analyst white paper, IBM LinuxONE systems offer scalability, security and reliability far beyond commodity platforms, and are a valuable dimension to a larger multicloud deployment opportunity, with up to 2.4 million¹ containers on a single system.
