IBM bridges the gap between OpenShift and its blockchain application development platform to facilitate hybrid deployment.
Data localization constraints? Obligations within the framework of a consortium? There is OpenShift for that.
IBM is now addressed to organizations wishing to exploit its Blockchain Platform offer, intended for the development of decentralized applications.
Until then, communication was focused on IBM Kubernetes Services as a lever for hybrid deployment.
Another container platform is now highlighted: OpenShift.
Blockchain Platform has been “optimized”, says IBM, for implementation on this base *.
IBM has made OpenShift a pillar of its hybrid cloud strategy.
It made it accessible on its public cloud and private cloud offerings, as well as on its Power Systems servers and mainframes (Z, LinuxONE).
It has also undertaken to develop its own software on this technological base, through “Cloud Paks”. These each group together a middleware, open source components and common services (authentication, logging, etc.).
* Base which has, among other things, the advantage of a connection to Jenkins for continuous integration, a stricter application security context by default and a simplified developer console.
