    IBM Cloud Pak® System can help accelerate your implementation of on-premises containerized platforms. It comes with IBM Cloud Pak® System accelerators that supports automated deployment and management of IBM Cloud Paks (containerized offerings) and Red Hat OpenShift clusters.

    IBM Cloud Pak System accelerators enable efficient and repeatable deployments of Red Hat OpenShift clusters and the Cloud Paks that run on them. You can completely automate the deployment and eliminate the need to perform multiple time-consuming manual tasks. This eliminates problems that are introduced by error-prone, manual configuration processes and accelerates solution deployment. These accelerators can be customized as per demand both before and after they are deployed.

    IBM Cloud Pak System provides the following deployment and post deployment benefits:

    • Guided deployments with quick and customized deploy paths
    • Rapid and customizable OpenShift and Cloud Pak deployment
    • Built-in Day 2 operations for deployments

    The following list of accelerator versions are supported in IBM Cloud Pak System 2.3.3.0
    • IBM Cloud Pak® for Applications accelerator 4.2.0.0
    • IBM Cloud Pak® for Automation accelerator 20.0.1.0
    • IBM Cloud Pak® for Integration accelerator 2020.2.1.0
    • IBM Cloud Pak® for Integration with OCS accelerator 2020.2.1.0
    • IBM Cloud Pak® for Multicloud Management accelerator 1.3.1.1
    • IBM Cloud Pak® for Security accelerator 1.3.0.0
    • Cloud Paks® Docker Private Registry 1.0.13.0
    • IBM Edge Application Manager accelerator 4.1.0.0
    • OpenShift Container Platform 4.4.0.0 base accelerator (supports upgrade)
    • OpenShift Container Platform with OCS accelerator 4.4.0.0
    For more information about these accelerator versions, see https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/en/SSMGNT/welcome.html.

    Accelerator features in IBM Cloud Pak System
    The following IBM Cloud Pak System accelerator features are delivered in this release:
    • Add or remove worker nodes from an already deployed cluster (manual scale).
    • Remove bootstrap node to free up resources after bootstrap process is complete.
    • Soft anti-collocation for masters separate from workers.

    I have been looking for documentation to install on-prem ICP4A, on a Kubernetes Cluster, without using OpenShift. It is supposed to work but there is no documentation describing installation without OpenShift.

    Hi Christos.

    Reply from Development :
    "We have automated deployments for IBM Cloud Pal Platforms as well as capabilities on OpenShift environment on IBM CPS. Kubernetes is not supported by IBM CPS"

    PS: Developer had issues posting here, which we are sorting out. Please let me know if you need any more questions on this.
