IBM Introduces Red Hat OpenShift to Blockchain Platform

International Business Machines Corp (IBM) revealed in an announcement that its will be introducing Red Hat OpenShift support to developers using its blockchain platform.

Greater Support for Blockchain Developers

The IBM Blockchain Platform can be used by developers to build and operate secured blockchain networks on IBM’s enterprise Kubernetes platform.

IBM has stated that its blockchain and OpenShift combination is aimed at serving companies that are looking to maintain a copy of the blockchain ledger while running workloads on their own infrastructure for purposes including compliance, security, or risk mitigation.

After IBM acquired Red Hat OpenShift in July 2019, it has been building a cloud development ecosystem around the Kubernetes-based OpenShift Container Platform.

Advanced Offerings to Support Linux Environments

IBM has meanwhile revealed that it aims to provide IBM Cloud Pak to support Linux environments on IBM Z as well as LinuxONE.

Cloud Paks from IBM include OpenShift and over a hundred other IBM software products. Moreover, LinuxONE is one of IBM’s most successful mainframe systems aimed at serving developers in Linux environments.

Ultimately, IBM is targeting its OpenShift-enabled software to become the foundational building blocks that customers employ to transform their organizations, according to a statement from the computing giant.

“Most of our customers want solutions that support hybrid-cloud workloads and the flexibility to run those workloads anywhere, and z/OS Cloud Broker for Red Hat will be the central point for how we enable cloud-native on the platform,” IBM said.
