Earlier this year at Middleware Mash-Up David Ware, Chief Architect of IBM MQ presented a session on IBM MQ in Containers. During the session he detailed how the ‘containerization’ of IT deployments in support of cloud-native architectures, widely adopted today, provides infrastructure optimization in many ways. Some of the ways he covered included: cost savings over virtualization technology, scalability, availability, elasticity, team agility, and more.
MQ is a natural fit for cloud native deployments, but many aren’t sure where to start with modernizing IBM MQ in containers. In the session Dave addresses this by showing you the key aspects to succeed with a container-based deployment strategy – and shows how you can get MQ running in a container in minutes.
The session was recorded and now it’s available online here. We encourage you to check it out for expert insights on how to:
- Get started with modernizing MQ in containers.
- Connect applications in containers.
- Optimize your approach to messaging.
- Adapt containers for use with your stateful applications.
- Ensure your MQ container approach is optimized for scalability and continuous availability.
- Manage containers without killing your MQ logs, destroying your CERTs, or defeating version control.
Deployment of IBM MQ in containers is something that’s here to stay. As organizations modernize, some will run legacy deployments along side of new deployments of MQ in containers. So, whether you haven’t started yet with IBM MQ in containers or want to get tips on how to improve your approach, we want to recommend that you check out this free online video. You can check i
