Host Cloud-Native applications in IBM i Cloud400 Platform

Host Cloud-Native applications in IBM i Cloud400 Platform

Cloud400 platform is designed to support cloud-native applications by providing a set of tools that allow developers to quickly develop, deploy and manage their applications in the cloud. The platform provides a set of APIs and services that can be used to develop cloud-native applications. The platform also provides a set of tools that allow developers to quickly deploy and manage their applications in the cloud.

Important factors to consider while deploying Cloud-Native applications in IBM i Cloud400 Platform:

  1. Security:

The Cloud400 platform provides a set of tools that help developers to secure their applications in the cloud. The platform provides a set of APIs that can be used to develop applications that are secure and compliant with the security policies of the platform.

  1. Migration from legacy applications:

The IBM Cloud400 platform provides a set of tools that help developers to quickly migrate their legacy applications to the cloud. The IBM i hosting platform provides the ability to migrate applications and components in the cloud with different options available. The default migration option is to move the data and configuration from legacy applications into the new applications deployed in the cloud. Other options include migration of the applications to new IBM i images that will be deployed to the cloud.

  1. Operational control:

The IBM Cloud400 platform provides the capability to deploy applications in the cloud that can be used for operational purposes and can be controlled remotely. The operations can be monitored through the control consoles provided by the platform.

In this article, we will discuss different tools provided by the Cloud400 platform and how they can be used to build a secure cloud-native applications.

IBM Cloud400 platform supported applications

In the IBM Cloud400 platform, the term application is defined as a set of component resources that can be executed in the cloud as a unit. An application consists of resources that represent the different applications or applications components of an application. An application can be classified as an IBM i based application, a cloud-native application or a hybrid application. An IBM i based application is a traditional application, which is deployed on a private cloud. It can be a Windows based application, an Android based application or a web application. A cloud-native application is an application that is built using cloud-native tools and techniques. It includes application development techniques that use microservices architecture and cloud-native components.

In the IBM Cloud400 platform, the most commonly used cloud-native technologies are Kubernetes, Docker, OpenShift and IBM BPM Suite. These are components that are developed to help developers and administrators to deploy applications quickly. The platform provides a set of tools that allow developers to quickly develop, deploy and manage their applications in the cloud.
