Following the Red Hat acquisition IBM has announced that its software portfolio will be adapted to run on the OpenShift container platform. By now IBM has created more than 100 so called Cloud Paks that are optimized to run on Red Hat OpenShift which is a customized Kubernetes platform focused on use as a PaaS platform.

"IBM is unleashing its software from the data center to fuel the enterprise workload race to the cloud. This will further position IBM the industry leader in the more than $1 trillion dollar hybrid cloud opportunity," said Arvind Krishna, senior vice president, Cloud and Cognitive Software, IBM. "We are providing the essential tools enterprises need to make their multi-year journey to cloud on common, open standards that can reach across clouds, across applications and across vendors with Red Hat."

The first five IBM Cloud Paks are available today and include:

  • Cloud Pak for Data to simplify and automate how organizations deliver insights from their data and provide an open and extensible architecture to virtualize data for AI.
  • Cloud Pak for Applications to help businesses modernize, build, deploy and run applications.
  • Cloud Pak for Integration to help integrate apps, data, cloud services and APIs.
  • Cloud Pak for Automation to help transform business processes, decisions and content.
  • Cloud Pak for Multicloud Management to provide multicloud visibility, governance and automation.

In addition OpenShift will be available in the IBM Cloud as well as for mainframe customers of IBM Z or LinuxOne.
