z/OS Cloud Broker is a software product that installs as an add-on to supported cloud platforms. It provides direct, self-service access to z/OS computing resources by end users through a supported cloud platform.
To create the z/OS software services that you will make available through z/OS Cloud Broker, z/OS system programmers and middleware system programmers use Cloud Provisioning and Management for z/OS. Using software service templates, they provide services for IBM middleware, such as IBM Customer Information Control System (CICS), IBM Db2, IBM Information Management System (IMS), IBM MQ, and IBM WebSphere Application Server.
