With the release of container extensions, IBM's z/OS platform now supports containerized workloads.


Container frameworks like Docker allow software to be deployed in a modular fashion and provide the foundation for cloud architectures. With the release of container extensions, IBM’s z/OS platform now supports containerized workloads and enables future deployments through orchestration mechanisms like Kubernetes and OpenShift. This allows z/OS to operate more seamlessly with Linux-based open source workloads that require access to local mainframe resources and subsystems.

To learn more about this, watch my presentation on zOS Container Extension at IBM Z Day on November 21, 2019.
