    Enterprises invested millions of dollars and spent decades on developing their on-premises infrastructure. As technology advances, so has the need to leverage that infrastructure, yet still modernize the enterprises’ software portfolio to use more contemporary infrastructure, tools, and languages.

    Enterprises require a unified, flexible, cost-optimal hybrid cloud with portable microservices and a reliable and securable on-premises infrastructure for data-intensive AI and mission-critical workloads. A hybrid cloud can help enterprises integrate their public and private clouds with their on-premises infrastructure.

    Red Hat OpenShift is the core element of hybrid cloud approach from IBM® with IBM Z® and IBM LinuxONE.

    This IBM Redbooks publication explains the capabilities of an integrated on-premises cloud that is based on a Red Hat OpenShift environment and includes a full stack of virtualization options and infrastructure management options, such as:

    • IBM Cloud® Infrastructure Center
    • Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform
    • IBM Cloud Paks®
    • z/OS® Cloud Broker
    • Red Hat OpenShift Data Foundation (ODF)
    • IBM Spectrum® Scale
