WS Overview

Information about Watson Studio

Starting with v4, Watson Studio is included with IBM® Cloud Pak for Data. A project administrator can install Watson Studio on the cloud pak. The requirements are:

  • Watson Studio needs only the restricted security context constraint (SCC).
  • Watson Studio must be installed in the same project as Cloud Pak for Data.
  • Watson Studio requires the Cloud Pak for Data common core services.
  • Watson Studio uses one of these following storage classes:
    • OpenShift Container Storage: ocs-storagecluster-cephfs
    • NFS: managed-nfs-storage
    • Portworx: portworx-shared-gp3
    • IBM Cloud File Storage: ibmc-file-gold-gid or ibm-file-custom-gold-gid

The purpose of this guide is to teach you how to deploy Watson Studio on Cloud Pak for Data on an OpenShift cluster on IBM Cloud. We will be using Cloud Pak for Data (CP4D) and other cloud native technologies such as containers and operators. You will also be exposed to and learn how technologies such as OpenShift Gitops (ArgoCD) integrate in a production environment.
