    This publication is intended to facilitate the deployment of the hybrid cloud business continuity solution with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform and IBM® block CSI (Container Storage Interface) driver plug-in for IBM Spectrum® Virtualize on Public Cloud AWS (Amazon Web Services). This solution is designed to protect the data by using IBM Storage-based Global Mirror replication.

    For demonstration purposes, MySQL containerized database is installed on the on-premises IBM FlashSystem® that is connected to the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) cluster in the vSphere environment through the IBM block CSI driver. The volume (LUN) on IBM FlashSystem storage system is replicated by using global mirror on IBM Spectrum Virtualize for Public Cloud on AWS. Red Hat OpenShift cluster (OCP cluster) and the IBM block CSI driver plug-in are installed on AWS by using Installer-Provisioned Infrastructure (IPI) methodology.
