  • Migrating OpenShift workload from x86 to Power using Multi-Arch Compute
    by Paul Chapman on 2024-04-11 at 19:12

    This demo features the use of OpenShift Multi-Arch Compute to transfer workloads from an x86 Worker Node to an IBM Power Worker Node. The Sock-Shop, an open-source e-commerce solution that utilizes microservices and is available on GitHub, is used for this purpose.The solution is installed on a combination of x86 and Power Worker Nodes. To begin the migration process, I cordon both x86 and one of the Power Worker Nodes, thereby preventing Pods from being scheduled to them. Subsequently, I delete the Pods on one of the x86 Worker Nodes, which are restarted on the Power Worker Node.00:00 Sock Shop Installation on Multi-Arch OpenShift00:11 Sock Shop Web Site00:17 Sock Shop Nodes00:49 Sock Shop Pods & Containers01:34 Cordon Nodes01:54 Delete x86 Pods02:12 Pods starting on Power03:13 The Sock Shop is fully functional again

As it turns out, those announcements were made on September 1 last year and they went into effect on January 1 – something that was not apparent to us (or the business partners that we talk to from time to time) until we were reviewing the subscription pricing deal … The post IBM Hardware, Software, And Support Prices Hiked appeared first on IT Jungle.
