The banking industry recognizes that a public cloud yields many benefits, but it is also wary of the potential for loss of control, as well as security and compliance challenges. Private clouds offer much-needed relief, allowing banks and financial institutions to leverage existing assets combined with the latest innovations and providing a DevSecOps mechanism for quickly and efficiently developing applications and deploying microservices into the legacy system. This code pattern uses a hybrid cloud architecture to deploy a banking microservice on LinuxONE. The microservice accesses a simulated retail bank on an IBM Z® Mainframe via banking APIs.
A private cloud can address the challenges faced by the banking industry by delivering a fully customizable and secure solution, including robust management. It offers the benefits of a public cloud, including rapid deployment, scalability, ease of use, and elasticity. It also provides greater control, increased performance, predictable costs, tighter security, and flexible management options. You can easily configure and customize it to fit your unique needs and security requirements.
IBM Cloud Private delivers a platform that adheres to best practices for developing microservices applications by enabling cloud-native development, including Docker containers and Kubernetes. The core platform works across private, dedicated, and public clouds, and offers a variety of open source application runtimes. Open source and IBM middleware and databases are built in, enabling enterprises to build apps quickly and securely.
