Announcing GitLab Ultimate for IBM Cloud Paks

This item in japanese

GitLab Inc. and IBM recently announced GitLab Ultimate for IBM Cloud Paks. Late last year GitLab simplified their functionality and pricing tiers to "free, premium, and ultimate". IBM Cloud Pak solutions enable easy deployment of enterprise software on the cloud, on-premise or pre-integrated environment.

GitLab Ultimate will work with Cloud Paks associated with applications, automation, integration, data, AIOps, multi-cloud management, and security. GitLab Ultimate will enable developers to implement DevOps-focused tooling and processes using a variety of different development languages, and deploy in any shared environment they choose.

Michelle Hodges, vice-president of Global Channels, GitLab, said,

"We’re excited to build our relationship with IBM and support their customers to deploy applications to the hybrid cloud environment of their choosing. By taking advantage of the portability of Red Hat OpenShift, developers have the options to build across clouds and systems including IBM Cloud, IBM Z, Google Cloud, AWS and Azure."

As enterprises continue to adopt the hybrid cloud model, this partnership will be important for IBM Z and IBM LinuxONE clients, providing the solution to accelerate their software innovations.

With GitLab Ultimate, project teams can deploy an application to a different system located on any other environment such as IBM Cloud and IBM Z, and manage the systems using the Kubernetes-based Red Hat OpenShift.

Dr. Evaristus Mainsah, general manager at IBM Hybrid Cloud and Edge Ecosystem, stated:

"Many of our customers want to build application suites using Cloud Paks to take advantage of technologies such as automation, machine learning, and IBM Watson. By collaborating with ecosystem partners like GitLab, we can help our customers deliver a single, comprehensive hybrid cloud solution to deploy into those workloads that address security and compliance."

IBM will support customers using GitLab Ultimate for IBM Cloud Paks. For further assistance or implementation, IBM will work with GitLab at an additional cost.
