Intro to OpenShift on IBM Cloud for Legacy Java App Migration

June 9, 20201:00 PM - 4:00 PM(GMT-05:00) Eastern Time (US & Canada)

You are invited to the upcoming, free Intro to OpenShift® on IBM Cloud for Legacy Java App Migration virtual workshop.

OpenShift has become the leading platform as a service (PaaS) to migrate legacy applications. Running IBM Cloud, OpenShift provides a secure, scalable, and reliable container orchestration environment. Many of today's companies are considering OpenShift by Red Hat® to migrate aging legacy monolithic Java applications running on EOL’d operating systems and hardware without a clear upgrade path. 

The purpose of this workshop is to show Java developers how to setup OpenShift on IBM Cloud to migrate their legacy applications. We will discuss how to provision instances of OpenShift and setup all the required infrastructure to host new applications including networking, service mesh, storage, and IAM considerations. The labs will cover how to setup OpenShift projects and leverage services to host your legacy Java application code. At the end of the labs, a Java developer will be able to successfully configure and deploy “Hello World” Java applications on OpenShift.

This hands-on workshop include:

  • What is OpenShift?
  • Why OpenShift over open source and public cloud solutions?
  • How does OpenShift work on IBM Cloud?
  • Benefits of containers and orchestration
  • Key considerations when migrating legacy applications
  • Key considerations for developing new applications
  • Key factors for refactoring applications to microservices
  • Installing OpenShift
  • Creating OpenShift Projects
  • Setting up all required networking, storage, and identity management
  • Selecting software development runtimes in containers
  • Implementing basic container and orchestration security
