Introducing watsonx.ai on Microsoft Azure

By NICK PLOWDEN posted Tue June 11, 2024 05:45 PM


At IBM THINK 2024, we announced that IBM watsonx.ai is now supported by IBM to run on Microsoft Azure and available to purchase through IBM and our business partner ecosystem as a customer-managed solution on Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO). Organizations are also able to transact on Azure Marketplace to procure watsonx.ai to build AI applications in an enterprise-secure, trusted environment. Organizations can leverage the power of IBM’s hybrid cloud approach to run watsonx.ai anywhere via ARO and complement with Azure native services to meet business goals and objectives.

Architecture on Microsoft Azure

Clients are able to deploy watsonx.ai as customer-managed software deployed onto Red Hat OpenShift on Microsoft Azure. Clients can choose either a self-managed instance, OpenShift Container Platform (OCP), or a managed instance, Azure Red Hat OpenShift (ARO). Licenses can be purchased directly from an IBM seller or Business Partner. The self-managed OCP option includes OpenShift licenses. Instructions on how to configure and deploy onto either option are available on request.
