What IBM Storage Suites for Cloud Paks Can Do

Containers and Red Hat OpenShift are shifting the dynamics not only within test and Dev/ops environments but across entire businesses. Along with container technologies, microservices-based architectures are becoming a key enabler of hybrid multicloud. These workloads are however, ephemeral in nature. Great for easy replication and migration… but the lightweight and throw-away nature of containers challenges an enterprise’s responsibility to protect and maintain this data. IBM Cloud Paks and IBM Storage Suite for Cloud Paks brings this full circle by enabling a faster, more reliable way to modernize and move to the cloud.
