IBM Cloud Private is the name of a former IBM product that has been withdrawn from marketing. It was referred to by the acronym ICP. While the product has been withdrawn, some of its product components are still being used for the Common Services layer used by this and other IBM Cloud Paks. The ICP acronym is being re-purposed to mean IBM Cloud Platform. However in some of the documentation links and in some of the product components, you will sometimes see the name IBM Cloud Private still being used. For the purposes of the instructions in this Playbook, the terms IBM Cloud Private and IBM Cloud Platform Common Services can be understood as synonymous.
