Run Adabas & Natural on containers and the cloud

Adopt a modern IT infrastructure

Businesses are continuously adopting containers and the cloud as key components of their IT infrastructure strategies. Containers package up code and dependencies as a unit of software that can be run quickly and reliably on any computing environment. This gives you the freedom to move to the cloud to deliver applications faster with more flexibility and scalability.

By moving Adabas & Natural applications to containers, such as like Docker® and Kubernetes®, you can choose the best deployment model whether it is on-premises or a private or public cloud.

Moving your application workload to a modern IT infrastructure can be an iterative approach that follows your business strategy and goals. You will also benefit from improved scalability, availability, performance, deployment and operations with this infrastructure. Combining container and cloud with DevOps and the EclipseTM -based NaturalONE development environment puts you in an excellent position to address changing business requirements and innovate faster.
