Millions of IBM apps now modernisable with Red Hat OpenShift

By

IBM and Red Hat today announced millions of existing IBM-based applications would now be enabled for modernisation through Red Hat OpenShift.

The announcement was made by Matt Hicks, senior vice-president, Engineering, Red Hat, and Arvind Krishna, senior vice-president of Hybrid Cloud, and director of IBM Research, IBM, at Red Hat’s annual Summit event in San Francisco.

“IBM has one of the largest software inventories across the planet,” Hicks said. The announcement means IBM middleware — WebSphere, DB2 and MQ — will be packaged as certified Red Hat Enterprise Linux containers, and IBM software can be integrated with cloud-native OpenShift applications. It builds on IBM’s recent efforts to re-engineer its entire software portfolio with containers.

This year IBM and Red Hat reach 20 years of partnership. The two organisations share three common beliefs, Krishna said, which underpin the strategic alignment announced today:

  1. It’s a hybrid world – enterprises want the ability to span traditional IT, private and public clouds.
  2. Containers are strategic.
  3. Innovation is the path forward.

The alignment has five parts, Krishna said:

  1. All IBM middleware will be certified on RHEL containers.
  2. IBM middleware can be integrated with open source under one common platform, fully supported from the hypervisor through to your applications.
  3. IBM middleware will be deployable everywhere that Red Hat OpenShift is supported.
  4. The development lifecycle will be extended from inception to production with a built-in management plane for continuous delivery and operation.
  5. Professional services will be able to advise and implement IBM Cloud Garage Methods and Red Hat Innovation Lab.

This extended collaboration is already available to customers with Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform subscriptions, deploying on IBM Cloud via the Red Hat Cloud Access solution.
