Administering Cloud Pak for Data

The way that you administer IBM® Cloud Pak for Data depends on how you deployed the application.

  • If you deployed Cloud Pak for Data to an existing IBM Cloud Private environment, administration tasks related to monitoring your deployment environment are handled through IBM Cloud Private. However, administration tasks related to your application are handled through the embedded administration tools. For more information, see Administering IBM Cloud Private deployments.
  • If you deployed a stand-alone instance of Cloud Pak for Data, you can use the embedded administration tools to complete all administration tasks, such as adding users and monitoring the health of the application and the deployment environment. For more information, see Administering stand-alone deployments.
