Take a closer look at these technologies, and learn how to run a simple nginx deployment from a Dockerfile on OpenShift running on IBM Z.


Back in May, I participated in IBM Think Digital 2020 with my colleague Filipe Miranda to present a Master Class titled “Modernizing Your Infrastructure with Kubernetes and ICPA on IBM Z.”

In this 93-minute video, I kick things off by giving a quick tour of IBM Z and then dive into current options available for Kubernetes on Linux on IBM Z and LinuxONE, including Kubic from SUSE, Canonical distribution of Kubernetes, Red Hat OpenShift, and other deployments supported by IBM partners and community. I wrap up by demonstrating how you’d run a simple nginx deployment from a Dockerfile on OpenShift running on IBM Z.

From there I hand things off to Filipe who gets into some of the background on Kubernetes itself, including container technology, and then dives into some of the technical components of how OpenShift works in a Linux on IBM Z and LinuxONE environment. He also talks about how the IBM Cloud Pak for Applications (ICPA) adds value to your deployment on IBM Z.
