This paper examines Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform (OCP) running on IBM® Power Systems as an effective platform for application modernization for a hybrid cloud environment. IBM tests show that the same multi-tier online transaction processing(OLTP)workloads on Red Hat OpenShift,running IBM WebSphere®Hybrid Edition on an IBM E950 Power System,can process 3.2x more transactions per second and can reduce the cost per transaction in a three-year TCO modelby 53%versus compared x86 servers. In addition to reducing IT costs, IBM Power Systems provide other benefits such as resiliency, security and scalability that are requisites for enterprise IT.
