IBM Cloud Pak for Integration Installation (ZM602G-SPVC)

Overview

Cloud Pak for Integration consists of several different parts, including the Cloud Pak for Integration operator and the Platform UI instance, which acts as the integration console for the integration capabilities. Each integration capability consists of an operator and one or more integration instances.

The course begins with an introduction to IBM Cloud Paks, Cloud Pak for Integration, its architecture, Docker, containers, Kubernetes, and Red Hat OpenShift console. You explore the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform environment. You learn how to install the IBM Cloud Pak for Integration operator and a Platform UI instance. You access the Platform UI dashboard and examine some features. You install other integration capability operators and deploy capabilities as operator instances. For each of the integration capabilities, you verify the associated pods, storage, and some of their features.
