OpenShift on IBM Cloud is an extension of the IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, where IBM manages OpenShift Container Platform for you.

With OpenShift deployes on IBM Cloud, developers have a fast and secure way to containerize and deploy enterprise workloads in Kubernetes clusters. This session walks through deploying a Java microservice in OpenShift on IBM Cloud. It can often be a challenge to figure out the right place to start with microservice deployments — especially with porting legacy code.

In this briefing, you will learn:

  • how to create your own OpenShift cluster on the IBM Cloud, how to use the oc CLI (command line interface)
  • how to use the OpenShift Web Console to deploy applications.
  • distributed logging with LogDNA
  • different modes of deploying to OpenShift including from a previously existing image, from a Git repository, and from Source Code using Source-to-Image (S2I).

What is OpenShift Commons?

Commons builds connections and collaboration across OpenShift communities, projects, and stakeholders. In doing so we’ll enable the success of customers, users, partners, and contributors as we deepen our knowledge and experiences together.

Our goals go beyond code contributions. Commons is a place for companies using OpenShift to accelerate its success and adoption. To do this we’ll act as resources for each other, share best practices and provide a forum for peer-to-peer communication.
