Armonk, New York headquartered technology company IBM has leveraged its collaboration with information technology (IT) services firm Persistent Systems to accelerate the deployment of its Cloud Pak solution.

IBM Cloud Pak is an enterprise-ready containerised software solution, built on the Red Hat OpenShift software, which helps companies move business applications to the cloud faster.

“We recognise that Red Hat OpenShift, containerisation and Kubernetes skills are critical for scalable and cost-efficient IT modernisation. By combining these future-ready skills with our established cloud platform expertise and rich history of IBM product development, we believe Persistent is uniquely positioned to accelerate Cloud Pak deployments,” Chris O’Connor, CEO and executive director of Persistent Systems, said.

Pune-based Persistent Systems also announced that it has provided containerisation and Kubernetes training to over 2,000 professionals.
