WebSphere Hybrid Edition is the solution of choice for existing on-premises WebSphere Application Server deployments. Many of these applications will not be migrated to cloud in the near term, and with WebSphere Hybrid Edition they can remain in place or make a gradual transition. WebSphere Hybrid Edition gives you the flexibility to move between WebSphere editions over time without additional entitlements.

WebSphere Hybrid Edition also is the solution of choice for migrating WebSphere Application Server applications to the cloud. WebSphere Application Server and WebSphere Application Server Network Deployment include the WebSphere Liberty and Open Liberty options. With its extremely small footprint, high performance, and full Java EE/Jakarta EE and MicroProfile certification, Liberty is an industry standard for deployments in the cloud, whether modernizing existing applications or creating new cloud-based applications.

As WebSphere applications migrate to the cloud, it becomes critical to be able to manage the resultant hybrid environment. IBM is focused on hybrid implementations as the vehicle for clients to maximize their competitiveness and business results related to cloud deployments. WebSphere has been a leader in hybrid deployments, with support for all the major public clouds, Kubernetes deployments, and now optimizations for Red Hat OpenShift that establish Liberty as a solution for Java Enterprise Edition and Jakarta Enterprise Edition (Java EE/Jakarta EE) and MicroProfile deployments to Red Hat OpenShift in private or public clouds. In addition to WebSphere management, WebSphere Hybrid Edition delivers common services enablement to ensure integration and management capability across the IBM software portfolio, most notably with IBM Cloud Pak solutions.

WebSphere Hybrid Edition is a flexible solution for WebSphere Application Server deployments that can enable organizations to meet current and future requirements. It delivers a broad range of technical portfolio options, the capability to mix and match across options over time without additional purchases, a cloud-friendly Virtual Processor Core (VPC)-based metric, and the latest entitlement options from IBM, including perpetual and subscription options.
