IBM Systems magazine - January/February 2020 - 28

"The combination of OpenShift and IBM Z
gives users the keys to unlock brand new
markets or new experiences for their
customers more rapidly."
-Mike Barrett, senior director of product management for
Kubernetes Investments, Red Hat

With more than 1,000 clients,
OpenShift has assisted a variety of
industries. Any client involved in
digital transformation needs
OpenShift's ability to quickly deliver
new services to keep market share.
For IBM Z users, OpenShift
enhances development and takes
advantage of the IBM Z platform's
data protection, privacy and reliability capabilities. Cloud-native
applications that were built on x86
can be enhanced and deployed on
IBM Z and remain close to where
the data lives, reducing latency and
improving protection, privacy and
availability. Users gain processing efficiencies, yielding the most
cost-effective way to meet data
protection and industry-specific
regulatory requirements.
"OpenShift on IBM Z results in
an ability to reap those benefits in
faster application development in
a common developer experience,"
Barrett notes. "The combination of
OpenShift and IBM Z gives users
the keys to unlock brand new markets or new experiences for their
customers more rapidly," he says.

IBM Cloud Paks for
Digital Transformation
Red Hat OpenShift is a strategic
enterprise hybrid multicloud
platform. With OpenShift available
on IBM Z in early 2020, IBM has
launched a new IBM Cloud Paks
offering that integrates both IBM
and Red Hat OpenShift technologies. Cloud Paks give developers,
data managers and administrators
an open environment for building
cloud-native applications, modernizing and extending existing

applications as well as the deployment of applications and middleware across multiple clouds. The
family is comprised of IBM
Cloud Pak for Applications, IBM
Cloud Pak for Data, IBM Cloud Pak
for Integration, IBM Cloud Pak for
Multicloud Management and IBM
Cloud Pak for Automation.
Cloud Paks provide a complete solution and are designed
to include containerized IBM
software, middleware, tooling,
runtimes and open-source components. Cloud Paks have added
capabilities for workload deployment, lifecycle management and
production quality of services. All
of the Cloud Paks include the Red
Hat OpenShift container platform
and are certified to meet enterprises client requirements. The
Cloud Paks have an integrated
set of core operational services
including metering, monitoring,
identity and access management.
"IBM looked at areas where we
could help enterprise clients run
containerized workloads in a consistent, integrated environment
across their IT infrastructure,"
says Kavita Sehgal, offering manager, IBM Hybrid Cloud Platform
on IBM Z and LinuxONE. "There
are specific bundled packages to
meet these client requirements,"
she notes.
Cloud Paks on IBM Z gain all of
the benefits of the platform-data
encryption, scalability and cloud
integration.
Cloud Paks offer a unified user experience with
consumption-based pricing on a
pay-as-you-go model. If clients

want to just pay for what they
consume, they can do that. They
can purchase a license if that's
preferred. Further, clients can
pick and choose what software and
tools they want to use within the
Cloud Paks.
Users can manage Cloud Paks
using a single display through the
Red Hat OpenShift platform, providing flexibility and simplification.
"You don't have to go to different
management tools or a different environment to see what's happening,"
Sehgal notes. "It brings everything
together into a highly consistent and
integrated environment," she says.
Because Cloud Paks run on
Red Hat OpenShift, clients benefit
from a complete hybrid multicloud
model. They can run the workloads
anywhere OpenShift can run including on-premises or off-premises, in
the IBM Cloud* as well as Microsoft*
Azure Cloud, Google Cloud and Amazon Web Services.
Cloud Paks can help clients
modernize and extend the mainframe to new workloads and
applications while keeping the
secure and resilient environment
that supports their mission-critical
workloads. Enterprises don't need
to worry about specialized skill
sets either because IBM Z and
Cloud Paks technologies offer a
common experience. If IT developers and admins understand
x86, they will understand the
tooling and applications on IBM Z,
Cloud Paks and OpenShift. "We
have created a common, consistent
and agile platform without staff
needing specialized skills to run it,"
Sehgal says.
