Over the past few years, Kubernetes has emerged as the de facto standard platform for the management, orchestration, and provisioning of container based cloud native computing applications.

Cloud native computing applications are essentially applications that are built from a collection of smaller services (i.e., microservices) and take advantage of the speed of development and scalability capabilities that cloud computing environments typically provide.

The Kubernetes ecosystem continues to experience explosive growth and the project benefits greatly from being a multiple-vendor and meritocracy-based open source project backed by a solid governance policy and level playing field for contributing.

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform is Kubernetes with additional supporting capabilities to make it operational for enterprise needs.
OpenShift instead differentiates itself from other distributions by providing long term (3+ year) support for major Kubernetes releases, security patches, and enterprise support contracts that cover both the operating system and the OpenShift Kubernetes platform.

IBM Cloud Pak for Data is a robust end-to-end platform for all data and analytic needs within your enterprise.
