What is IBM Cloud Private?
IBM Cloud Private (ICP) is a new application platform that is based on Kubernetes and provides services for developing and managing on-premises containerized applications. ICP Community Edition (ICP-CE) is distributed free of charge for non-production use and is available on Docker Hub. For commercial use, you would need the Enterprise package.
In my previous blog post, Introduction to IBM Cloud Private, I have covered step-by-step installation of ICP 2.1. This time I will focus on configuring OpenEBS as a persistent storage option and deploying a stateful workload (MongoDB) using OpenEBS storage classes.
