It’s time to rethink Maximo! Today, we’re diving into the benefits of using Red Hat OpenShift together with Maximo Application Suite (MAS) for a seamless and efficient deployment experience. Be warned: Technical information ahead! 

Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform offers a robust infrastructure that includes a Red Hat Enterprise Linux operating system, Kubernetes software for deploying and managing containers, and an internal image registry. When you deploy MAS on this platform, you can take advantage of its powerful features and capabilities. 

Let’s explore the advantages of using OpenShift with Maximo Application Suite: 

  1. Streamlined Deployment Process: The Maximo Manage operator acts like an installer, pulling images from the IBM Entitled Registry and any customization archives from the customer repository. This process is similar to downloading software from Passport Advantage and Fix Central. The operator builds a Maximo Manage administrative image and configures images or workloads, such as UI, Cron, BIRT reporting, which are then deployed to the MAS containers.
  2. Easy Customization: You can store your customization archive in a customer repository and access it from Maximo Application Suite using HTTPS. This makes it easier to apply customizations to your deployment without additional complexity.
  3. Built-in Monitoring and Logging: Maximo Manage dashboards are provided within Red Hat OpenShift, allowing you to review logs and monitor the performance of your OpenShift and other applications deployed in MAS. This helps you track your system’s health and ensure smooth operations.
  4. Flexible Workload Configuration: Maximo Manage supports various workloads, including All, UI, Cron, Report, and Maximo Enterprise Adapter. You can configure these workloads during the application deployment, tailoring the system to your specific needs.
  5. Seamless Integration with Other MAS Applications: Easily deploy other Maximo Application Suite applications, such as Maximo Assist, Maximo Health, Maximo Predict, and Maximo Monitor, alongside Maximo Manage. This allows you to create a comprehensive asset management ecosystem tailored to your requirements.
  6.  Efficient Database and Storage Management: Deploy the Maximo Manage database, such as IBM Db2 Warehouse, in a cluster for efficient management pre-configured storage, enabling seamless doc-links and document storage handling enabling seamless doc-links and document storage handling.
  7. Messaging Provider Configuration: Pre-configured messaging provider, such as JMS or Kafka, to ensure smooth and reliable communication.

With Red Hat OpenShift and Maximo Application Suite, you have a powerful combination that offers streamlined deployment, easy customization, and seamless integration with other MAS applications. Embrace the future of asset management by leveraging the benefits of OpenShift and Maximo Application Suite today!
