Migrate and Modernize IBM Maximo with Azure Red Hat OpenShift | Microsoft, IBM and Red Hat Partnership

Migrate and Modernize IBM Maximo with Azure Red Hat OpenShift | Microsoft, IBM and Red Hat Partnership

In partnership with IBM and Red Hat, Microsoft provides a validated architecture for running IBM Maximo Application Suite (MAS) on Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO). MAS is a centralized platform that helps streamline work processes, manage inventory and regulatory compliance, and offers better AI analytics and cloud deployment options. Red Hat OpenShift is a hybrid cloud application platform powered by Kubernetes that makes application development and deployment simpler and effortless. Azure Red Hat OpenShift provides highly available, fully managed OpenShift clusters that are monitored and operated by Microsoft and Red Hat.

Customers opting for the MAS application will have to move to MAS when Maximo 7.x reaches its end of life. MAS is containerized to run specifically on Red Hat OpenShift, and for customers unfamiliar with running containers in production, Microsoft, IBM, and Red Hat provides a validated architecture for running MAS on Azure Red Hat OpenShift. For MAS deployment on Azure, there are three options:

  • Option 1 provides a scripted install process for the MAS application and the underlying OpenShift Container Platform (OCP).
  • Option 2a requires the customer to install MAS themselves but allows for greater customization of MAS during the installation process.
  • Option 2b requires the customer to install MAS themselves, and in this option, the underlying platform is Microsoft ARO, a managed version of OCP offered by Microsoft.

The blog walks through these options and describes how the IBM, Red Hat, and Microsoft Azure components come together and provide a solid foundation for running MAS. It also explores the architectural decisions one should consider, so you can choose the MAS installation option that best fits your organization’s needs.
