Integrate into your hybrid cloud for agile applications

IBM® z/OS® Cloud Broker® is packaged in the IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack which enables application owners and IT architects, in both medium to large mainframe enterprises, to jumpstart application modernization and IT automation faster, with less cost and risk. This enables simplified access to mainframe applications and data, agile enterprise DevOps, and automated IT management. The IBM Z and Cloud Modernization Stack takes an open, hybrid-cloud approach — leveraging open standards to create APIs in minutes, offer a cloud-native development experience for z/OS apps, provide support for cloud-native development with z/OS optimized for Red Hat® OpenShift®, and automate IT management leveraging Red Hat Ansible®. 

IBM z/OS Cloud Broker integrates z/OS-based services and resources into your private cloud platform for a modern, cloud-native experience. This is the first software to provide access to z/OS services within private cloud platforms such as Red Hat OpenShift for consumption by the broader development community. 

It enables you to protect and leverage your IBM Z® investments through integration with your hybrid cloud environments and strategies. Your developers can quickly create, modernize, deploy, and manage applications within the security of your firewall.
